Re: aol rejects mailing lists?
I doubt that it's a .edu vs. .com thing, since domains don't necessarily mean much. However, it could be an AS, netblock or server thing. AOL may have "whitelisted" you on their own initiative. Alternatively, you may not be triggering their filter. We have a fairly modest mailing list, but our system sorts mail by domain before sending. That means that we open up one connection to AOL and send all of the messages at once. >From what I read on the archives, that's the best way to trip their filters. Maybe you're not doing that. -steve On Wed, 20 Jun 2001, Lucy E.
