Hey everybody,

I sent out a mass mailing today to announce the chat room and some of the new features to the members and I got a lot of messages bounced back to me. Please take a moment and go into your User CP and make sure that your e-mail address is current. Thanks!

Your special... you're on AOL. AOL people never receive our mailings as our mail is flat-out blocked by your ISP. I'd fire off an e-mail to AOL's support to ask how you can set yourself up to receive our mail and ask why we're blocked in the first place.

It's [email protected]. Tell them it's a message forum that occasionally sends out a mailing with update information to registrants that signed up to receive the mailing. It is not spam.

Ok, so it is definitely NOT a problem on my end of things. I'd keep my eyes open in your SPAM boxes for the next few days as sometimes (very rarely) messages take a long time to get to the recipient.

AOL mail addresses never receive messages, so keep that in mind. That's one of many reasons I despise AOL.

OK, Here's what AOL online help said......................

AOLTechAUG says, Thank you for the information.
AOLTechAUG says, AOL may have received large amounts of junk e-mail from someone using this domain
name. Please ask the sender of the e-mail to ask their system administrator or Internet Service Provider to call the AOL® Postmaster Hotline at 1-888-212-5537.
AOLTechAUG says, The Postmaster Team, which is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, can work with the ISP to quickly resolve the issue. Additional information is available at the AOL Postmaster Web Site: http://postmaster.info.aol.com/
You say, Why can't I copy and paste the info you just gave me?
AOLTechAUG says, I will e-mail you a COPY of this conversation. :)
You say, Thanks, I'll forward it to the forum head.

I'll call that number, but I don't know why I'm blocked in the first place... the domain didn't exist before I bought it over a year ago and I've ALWAYS had this problem from the beginning.

****ing AOL. God I hate them.

Will call tomorrow at lunch time.

Okay, here's the poop, and nothing but the poop. to send mass emails to AOL subscribers, Zombie has to sign up for the AOL "White" List. Here's the email address to do so. The same thing is currently happening on another forum also, and I'm on AOL's back at least twice a day just for the fun of it.

I'm now into my 2nd plus hour of live AOL help to resolve these issues. I have all day. I'm onto my second supervisor now, lol. They're not used to someone still being polite after two hours! Wish me luck, I'm fighting city hall here, lol.
