System Alert

Yahoo is blocking the MLS


It was discovered Saturday, April 5th that Yahoo is blocking e-mail messages sent from CAAR MLS. This affects automated messages sent to Prospects, as well as messages sent from Search Results.

UPDATE from Solid Earth:

Our team has explored what changes can be made from within the List-IT platform to help circumvent this change, however this would require a substantial code change to the overnight prospecting system, as well many changes to the List-IT mail server.  At this time, we are unable to facilitate such a large system change.

The easiest way to get around this issue is for users to use a different free email provider such as a Gmail address which is not experiencing any issues currently being relayed through the List-It system.

Go to Setup

  • Click on the Personal tab
  • Change the e-mail address
  • Click Save Settings


Another option is to exit the MLS when sending e-mails from Search Results - check the box below the "Send Message" and "Cancel" buttons to exit the MLS and go to your own e-mail client (such as Outlook). This, however, will not help your prospects who are set up to receive automatic notifications.
