AOL blocking emails

For some reason AOL is currently rejecting emails from the RIBnet forums [1] which means that if you are an AOL user you probably won't get any notifications of new forum messages and PMs. It may also mean that AOL users are unable to register on the forums as they won't receive the sign up details.

I'll let you know as and when I have any more information.

John

[1] Actually it's rejecting mail from hvm04.futurequest.net which is the mail server that handles the system generated emails. It's almost certainly due to AOL's flawed and overly aggressive anti-spam procedures. If you're an AOL member and you're not happy that they are failing to deliver your email, please let them know!

This is something that has wound me up on more than one occasion - there is seemingly no logic to what AOL rejects.

Bitter experience has told me that once they have started rejecting mail from your server, it's a long haul to get them accepting it again!

Has Ted Turner got you on a retainer Ginger? I had the PC Doctor here yesterday doing a bit of wireless stuff and kicking the printer back into life. He also said not to go near AOL. He reckons that it gets so into the PC that should a prob occur or you want to get rid of it it's a nightmare. You seem to love it to bits.

Thats like one of them old wives tales.

True AOL is different, but it doesn't do a "Christina" on your PC.

Yep...

Only way to completely remove AOL is to format your main hard drive.

I don't love it to bits. But it does everything it should do. I even have a wireless network running.


I do not have AOL running on my laptop, but can still read my email etc, even the ones from ribnet.

I chose AOL in the first place years ago due the fact that it was the most reliable connection. And looking at the trouble the rest of my family have had i think I made the right decision. If it isn't for you then fine. But don't knock it until you try it. Relying on second hand info and urban myths to make your decisions on is not really a sound basis for life.

AOL connections are only as good as the operator they choose to use in a particular area - in ours it's NTL.

The reason no self respecting techie would ever have AOL on his machine is because they try to control what you do - nothing wrong with AOL as long as you don't use the software they provide.

Does anyone know what AOL stands for - I DID post it once but JK removed it!!!!

Had it for nearly five years, had heaps of trouble! What was that about myths, second hand and life?!
