Yahoo Maps API "limit exceeded" Message

I'm using the Yahoo Maps API. I'm receiving an error message I can not explain. I know there is a 50,000 request per day, per IP limit. However I'm on a private IP address and I've only downloaded about 3,000 images within the last 24 hours. Each image requires two API calls so that's about 6,000 requests within the last 24 hours. Yet I am not receiving the following error:

QUOTE
<Error>
The following errors were detected:
<Message>limit exceeded</Message>
</Error>


Is there some other limit that I'm hitting or is the limit really lower than documented?

  • How often are you requesting? I think there may be a cap on both the total number per day and how many requests you can make within x # of seconds.

  • I am no where near the limit; just using email as usual yet I got the message from Yahoo "exceed limit".   It says to click here for info.   Is this a virus?
    thanks-

  • It sent you to our Developer forums?  You should contact the Yahoo Mail team at help.yahoo.com.
