Re: [PLUG] PLUG messages as false spam


This might be my domain's problem - I run many lists off of
and occasionally I get e-mails (mostly from yahoo) that they stopped 
receiving mail.  I always chalked it up to their bad spamfilters and 
instructed them to check their spam folders.  Perhaps I'm blacklisted 

Is there any header info from the e-mail I just sent that could help me track 
down if it is trouble with my domain?
