I noticed some as well.  We received one confirmed fp report, which I
sent in yesterday, but a look at the logs showed potentially up to 5
messages that were sent from legit Yahoo mail servers, that could have
been legit mail that sniffer caught.  Still haven't received a response
on the fp submission either.

Thanks!

Subject: RE: [sniffer] YAhoo mails failing sniffer?

I got a record number of false-positives from Sniffer yesterday. The
category was always "Scam Patterns". Two of them were from Yahoo! as
well.
Although the total was low (something like four FP's total), that is
more in
one day than I usually see in a month with Sniffer. There must have been
some incredibly-badly written code that slipped though, as they were
personal e-mails that should never have been tagged. Personal e-mails
are
really the only ones that I truly consider false positives. I get dozens
of
mailing list messages trapped each month, but I don't consider those a
big
deal. Customers rarely miss these. I very, very rarely see any truly
personal e-mails get trapped by Sniffer though. Hopefully, they have
already
fixed the problem. I haven't seen any as of this afternoon.
