This is the last straw for AOLers

OK, I've had it up to here with AOL. If it's not one thing it's another. I've constantly had trouble sending them messages with my mailing list. First they banned my IP. Then they said I wasn't using RFC-compliant URLs (though AOL's idea of an RFC is much different than the rest of the world). So I fixed those URLs (that were just part of my tracking system).

Then, I send out a mailing last night. And I get these errors back (this is all it ways...I'm not cutting it off intentionally):

SMTP error from remote mailer after end of data:
host mailin-01.mx.aol.com [205.188.159.57]: 554 TRANSACTION FAILED:
(HVU:B1) The URL contained in your email to AOL members has generated a high volume of complaints. Per our Unsolicit
Nice error AOL.

Just the same, because of this, I don't encourage anybody with an AOL or Netscape.net account to sign up for my mailing list, as there's a good chance you won't get it. It's not a problem with Dada, it's a problem with AOL's overzealous filtering of all things Internet.

Get a real email account and a real ISP, folks. You'll be far better off.
