Direct Email Relaying

Closed
-
I am part of our City's volunteer organizations that has a distribution list. When I send an email from my Yahoo account to the distribution list, I do not get a copy myself. The IT person at our City wrote:''

"Verizon Media which is the parent company for Yahoo.com, evidentially has email policy which blocks emails from being sent and received over the Internet from the same Yahoo.com email address. (This is a form of Direct Email Relaying and it is usually blocked by most Internet providers)"

Anyone else having this issue? Anyone know whether this is an accurate response? I belong to several Google groups and have sent messages over the years to the groups and always received a copy back myself
