Hello Patrick,
  Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Mail.
  We appreciate your report to Yahoo! Mail's Postmaster Group.
  If you continue to see persistent 4xx errors in your SMTP logs when 
  delivering email to Yahoo! Mail accounts, there are several factors that
  may be causing this issue:
  1) Your server is sending an unusually, higher volume of email traffic 
  to Yahoo! Mail: When we see a significant increase in email volume 
  coming from a server (as compared to its historical volume), we may 
  defer connections from that server temporarily.
  2) Mail coming from your server are generating complaints from our 
  users: Yahoo! Mail constantly monitors feedback from our users and we 
  use that feedback to feed into a sender's reputation. If our users 
  report your mail as spam on a consistent basis, your server's chances of
  getting connection deferrals are elevated.
  3) A combination of (1) and (2).
  While these 4xx deferrals are temporary, they should be treated as a 
  notification for you to examine your outbound queue and/or the content 
  of your outbound mailings.
  We urge you to review our recommended best practices targeted at bulk
