Steam Guard not Working with Yahoo Mail

Steam Guard E-Mails Not Being Received By Yahoo Mail

Steam Guard is a great security feature, and it typically works with out a hitch. Recently I reinstalled Steam on my desktop computer to try out the new Humble Indie Bundle that was released earlier this week. Since I have not logged into my Steam account for over a year, a new security feature called Steam Guard prohibited me from logging in without providing a verification code.

This was not a big deal, but for whatever reason, my old Yahoo account that is linked with my Steam account would automatically reject these emails. This appears to be a common bug that Yahoo has not addressed and not a settings or security feature in Yahoo Mail.
