Yahoo! Groups SpamGuard

Yahoo! turned on SpamGuard, and today it resulted in 61 false positives from my mailing list messages, with no actual spam caught. When SpamGuard thinks a message spam, it strips the Mailing-List header, so all of these messages landed in my inbox and I had to file them manually. As far as I can tell, there’s no way to turn off SpamGuard for Yahoo! Groups messages.

I've been getting them like mad as well - even on private boards I run on yahoo groups with only people I know involved. It's quite frustrating...

It's possible to turn this off for the listowner.

I know this is old but please find out from Jan Erik Mostrom just exactly how we DO turn this ridiculous feature off. Yes, I am a listowner, too

Hi, I searched the entire group, there's no option to turn SpamGuard off.
It's a crap.
