Yahoo have told me (via the feedback form) that our mail server is temporarily 'deprioritized'

This means that the first few times we connect to the mail server, we get a 451: Resources Temporarily Available, pleae try again later' message (after sending the message). We then have to retry and it seems to accept the message just before its due to expire.

I have asked Yahoo what the reason would be, but they only send generic responses. We have rDNS setup, and an SPF but no luck. Anybody had any experience with this?

Here's a conversation:

220 ESMTP YSmtp service ready
250-SIZE 31981568
MAIL From:<>
250 sender <> ok
RCPT To:<>
250 recipient <> ok
354 go ahead
