We've got a domain [example.com...] we bought another domain and have it on a 301.
(yes its setup correctly ive ran header checks)

For some reason yahoo appears to be indexing the 301 domain with the correct sites content!.
How is this even possible?!.

I assume you are refering to yahoo and not us.

Its become a real problem now. Yahoo appears to have penalised our actual domain name and has taken this 301 domain. Unbelievable.

LOL. :) Yes, I refer to Yahoo. Search engines involve a lot of complex code, and it is easy for bugs to creep in. Obviously, this is a real big bug, in that a search engine should never index a 301.
