The "unknown user" came from _your_ mail server, not from Yahoo!.  How can
they know that your address is still valid if your own mailserver says it
is not.  "Unknown user" is considered a "hard bounce" and it only takes
one of them to stop delivery.

Quidquid Latine dictum sit, altum videtur.
Si hoc legere scis, nimium eruditionis habes.
Vir sapit qui pauca loquitur.
Cras amet qui numquam amavit, quique amavit cras plus amet.
Uno itinere non potest perveniri ad tam grande secretum.
