I gave up using SORBS (and I'm not Mat's enemy, mind you - I used to work for SORBS and still like the idea) because it was so random. Mat would block 2, say, out of AOL's 26 or whatever mailservers. Why? b/c those two were used to send spam. Right. So, not only do I have to explain to users why their AOL friends cannot write them, I *also* have to explain that the blocking is at random, and if their friend just retrys sending, they'll have a 92% chance of getting through. Completely unworkable. If you want to block AOL (and I totally sympathize with Mat here) just ... block ... them and be done with it. Don't make me play email roulette. -- _________________________________________ Nachman Yaakov Ziskind, FSPA, LLM awacs@xxxxxxxxxx Attorney and Counselor-at-Law http://ziskind.us Economic Group Pension Services http://egps.com Actuaries and Employee Benefit Consultants
