It very well maybe. It's actually something I've seen associated more with
Outlook than with Yahoo. Have you checked your settings? Sometimes if you
set the mail client preferences to plain text it can clear up some of it (no
guarantee just worth a shot). I've seen it coming through Yahoogroups,
though usually only from people I know are replying through outlook or a
similar program. I know my G-mail hasn't been having too much trouble with
it. I don't currently have any mailing lists routed to other kinds of
e-mail accounts to run a set of tests setting that up will take a few days.
I've also noticed you have a New Zealand account, I'm not sure if that has
anything to do with it. I know I've had trouble e-mailing yahoo accounts in
Australia and Canada before (Mailer Deamons for no explicable reason... when
the 'reply' button works, but manually entering the identical address
doesn't.) It's been too wide spread for them all to be users playing e-mail
slight of hand. (As in every time I've tried a private e-mail to a
yahoo.co.au address.)

General question to the populace: Is anyone else having this kind of
trouble? If so or if not, who is using which set of e-mail clients? maybe
we can narrow this down so at least you know who to bug. ;)
