thnk you
First, you need to do a thorough audit of your mail server, and make SURE you're not being used as a spam relay. Why? Fedora 3 is ANCIENT...the latest is FC12...you are MANY versions behind. Along with many security fixes, Sendmail has also been updated, to address such things. Since your system is so old, you're going to be easily compromised.

Once you verify things aren't being badly used, contact Yahoo and Hotmail, and explain what's up. They can remove you from their blacklists.

Forward the messages through your ISPs server. That is the quick and easy answer.

If you don't want to do that, you can Set up Domain Keys and / or SPF, that will increase the 'trust' of many servers, because they can verify the sender.

There are some other hoops you can jump through too, but these are a good start. For instance with AOL you can register a 'complaint address' and they will be more apt to deliver and not mark as spam or block your domain.

Good Luck

Also, I add.. there are several procedures that you need to follow if you are sending in bulk:
  • Like handling the NDRs (non-delivery reports) and remove those addresses with such a respond.
  • Add (Precedence: bulk) to your outbound messages headers..
  • Make sure you are sending messages to peoples who asked for that message (not unsolicited messages)
  • Enroll into MSN: JMRP (Junk Mail Reporting Program) and Yahoo: Complaint Feedback Loop.
  • Also, Live Smart Network Data Services.
  • Read Bulk mailing policies for both mail providers..

I hope you luck :-)
