ISPs (Internet service providers) such as Yahoo! and AOL have recently implemented DMARC, a technical specification, the goal of which is to help reduce the potential for email-based abuse such as spamming, spoofing, and phishing. This means that if your email is being sent from a “Yahoo!” or “AOL” email address, or from any ISP that honors the DMARC policy (other ISPs are likely to follow suit), it may be rejected.
