Excellent, thanks!

I had whitelisted it as a whitelist_from in SA.  However, it seems I was 
tricked by Outlook which used other headers to modify the From address to 

From: [the list] on behalf of [the real sender]

So the problem is two-fold.

1 - Whitelisting the group address will not actually whitelist the email at 
least for this Yahoo! Group and Outlook tricked me.
2 - Legitimate Yahoo! Group emails are being flagged as SPAM

I'm going to investigate DomainKey support and Jim McCullars just posted a 
rule which looks like a great idea as well.
