yahoo wont accept my email?

i set up sendmail to send outgoing messages through my isp's smtp server, and my email gets sent to gmail and aol (aol for crying out loud) but when i send email to yahoo it is never delivered and it is never returned to me. it kind of just falls off the face of the earth. ive screwed sendmail up enough to know that when something is wrong with my configuration i will at least get an email back saying that it couldnt be delivered. is there anything i am doing wrong or does it really take over an hour for yahoo accounts to get their mail? ive been waiting almost that long but none of the emails have made it through yet.

--- edit ---

apparently it does take over an hour for yahoo to recieve mail. sorry for wastin space
