This is, unfortunately, a well-known issue between Google and Yahoo.
We're on Google at work so I get to deal with this on a semi-regular
There is something called DMARC (you can Google for that term, the
first few hits are directly relevant). Without going into all the
details, suffice it to say that Google believes Yahoo has DMARC in
place, but they're doing it wrong. This results in mail from Yahoo
coming from servers that Google thinks it shouldn't be coming from, so
it gets rejected, flagged as spam, etc.
I haven't researched it thoroughly enough to figure out who's right
and who's wrong here, but the bottom line is that it is hard to
receive mail from Yahoo users on Gmail.
You must be on the right track, but here must be more to it than this.
Yahoo mail that's sent directly to my address is OK but Yahoo mail
that's sent via a mailing list is flagged as spam.
