First I want to confirm that whether admins of external networks can still invite users with generic email domains? We tried it and we are able to invite users with generic email addresses. We want to confirm whether this is the correct behavior.

 

Assuming you have the link to an external account, can you use your generic email account (yahoo, gmail) to request to join an yammer external network?

Yes, it does appear you can invite yahoo/gmail type users to external networks.

Chiming in to verify the "yes".
