AOL email problems
Posted by: Justin 2001-03-23 14:39:43
Anyone know what the deal is with AOL's email problem... we run a daily devotional email with nearly 16,000 subscribers. 3,170 are AOL users, and none of them have received the emails since March 9th.

I've written them twice; the first time, I received a general "Thank you for your question, this message will be forwarded to the correct department" message. Second time - no reply.

For some unknown and undocumented reason, AOL began discarding messages from our mail storage and mailing list server at some point in the recent past. Basically, our server is told by their server that the mail is being delivered successfully (so it doesn't bounce), but it is silently discarded by their servers.

Has anyone else had this problem?

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
