Problems with Yahoo Mail When Sending My Newsletter

I am hoping to find out whY I have such a hard time with Yahoo mail when sending the newsletter for my bass fishing website.

I have about 8 - 900 users who use yahoo.com mail.

Once  a week i sent a newsletter announcing our weekly tuesday night chat.

It seems to get delivered to everyone else but my yahoo users always have problems. I seem to always see emails bounce back with messages saying that the messages were deferred for 4 hours and that they will keep trying to deliver for up to 5 days.

Most recently I am seeing messages like this:
Deferred: <iremovedthisusersnameforprivacyreasons@yahoo.com>: connect to m.mx.mail.yahoo.com[]: server refused mail service       

my host checked and my domain, his ip, his firewall and his barracuda are not showing on any blacklists that he could check

I am so aggravated with Yahoo. All I want to do is deliver a simple newsletter to the opted in members on my site inviting them to our tuesday night bass fishing chat. I have been doing this for 3 years and lately yahoo is getting harder and harder to deal with.

Does anyone know what I couild be doing wrong? or how I can talk to yahoo about this? or what I can do to fix this so my yahoo users get their requested messages from my site?

Thank you, Jared

You may not be doing anything wrong.  Yahoo (and Hotmail) are often more concerned with preventing possible spam than with delivering email.  Here is the Yahoo Postmaster info http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/postmaster/basics/  .   Maybe there is something there that will help.
