Initially when I had to deal with sending to yahoo I would get a mix of mail 
dumping into the receivers spam box to downright rejections. Then it moved 
completely to rejections. I have exec's that send mail to all the big 
providers, usually to lawyers and lobbyists that are either too clueless or 
too cheap to have a better mail system. Aol and yahoo at the time just wanted 
SPF records and reverse DNS that resolves.

I have thought about DKIM in sending, but so far in using DKIM for receiving 
mail with spamassasasin I just get more false negatives with the yahoo spam 
because a lot of it actually is through their servers so it gets properly signed.
I initially wanted DKIM to resolve mails from our bank not getting mixed in 
with all the phishing attemps. Adding a little bit of negative score helps it 
get through, but now maybe I will have to add a meta rule on some common 
combinations to catch the yahoo spam.
