Yahoo not following 301 redirect

We did a 301 redirect oursite.com to www.oursite.com when the was created. Google and other search engines can follow the redirect normally. But Yahoo seems to have problem in following it. It keeps displaying the non-www version in the search result with a pretty bad ranking, although occasionally the www version shows up with a much better rank. I did some searches and found a lot similar complaints about the same problem, but failed to find a solution to this. Does anybody know a solution? Thanks in advance for the input.

i also have a site which has issues ranking homepage in yahoo, the site has many 301's makes me wonder if yahoo can't handle it. Worse also this site is on IIS which i don't like. Anyone else having issues with 301's and Yahoo? Maybe someone who has a ton of 301's like me?

After having a site-wide redirect from non-www to www in place for ten years, Yahoo still requests -- and often lists, the non-www domain. Their 301 handling is still buggy after all these years...
