   I've noticed the same thing here.  I changed filter_end so that if the
sender ends with returns.groups.yahoo.com and it scores high with SA to
let it pass and add me as a recipient.  Here is the SA ruleset I use to
keep them from getting flagged:

#  Allow Yahoo! Groups email that seem to score high
header __UAH_YAHOOGR_1 exists:List-Unsubscribe
header __UAH_YAHOOGR_2 exists:List-Id
header __UAH_YAHOOGR_3 exists:Mailing-List

   This has taken care of most of it.  Occasionally a high-scoring email
will show up that was sent by returns.groups.yahoo.com but doesn't have
those headers and I will get a copy of it but those were probably spam
anyway.  HTH...
