Plenty of managers are running in to the issue where many of their Yahoo emails either get bounced or are delayed in delivery. Both Yahoo and AOL (owned by same company) are notorious for aggresive filters. Our domain is not on any grey or blacklists, so its internal to their algorithms. One status we get from Yahoo is too many emails coming from the same domain at the same time. We've tried using the manager email in the from addr, but when we do this then Yahoo complains because too many are coming from the same domain (in this case Yahoo! 😀) The best recourse is to always follow up your invites with an email from your own provider.

If you are a player or manager, we recommend creating a gmail account to use with our website, as we've had no problems with gmail. Also be sure that you are not unsubscribed from our emails. For details, here is our knowledge base article on this.
