    We're seeing emails sent to you as bouncing back to us with this error: "this user does not have a yahoo account"

    Make sure your email address is correct and probably change to a different email.

    Does that mean that a yahoo account is prerequisite to email notification? It doesn't work with AOL?

    No, not at all. That error simply meant that the email address did not exist. Maybe it was typed incorrectly.

    We don't have any preferences towards any email providers, but some are more aggressive at blocking 3rd party emails than others.
