Important notice for users listing @Yahoo.com or @aol.com emails in the “From” address of your email campaigns!
As of April 4, 2014, users listing an @yahoo.com email address for their MemberPlanet “from” address will not be able to send email correspondence of any kind from their MemberPlanet account.
This is the result of a policy change at Yahoo designed to prevent spam coming from Yahoo addresses. This change applies to all 3rd party email service providers, not just MemberPlanet.
On April 23rd AOL made a similar policy change.
These policies applies to all email correspondence, including invitations and auto-responders you currently use on MemberPlanet.
MemberPlanet suggests that you replace your @yahoo or @aol.com addresses in the “from” field to an address that is specific to you or your business ex: firstname.lastname@example.org. Having a unique email will better prevent servers from identifying your emails as spam.
If this isn’t an option at this time, use a different free email provider, such as gmail or hotmail.
Note: this only applies to MemberPlanet users who use a yahoo.com or AOL.com address in the "from" field of email correspondence (email campaigns, event invitations, donation campaign announcements, etc). This does NOT prevent you from sending mail TO recipients with yahoo.com or AOL.com email addresses.
