AOL delivery issues

By David Greiner on 30th November 2006

We’re currently experiencing problems delivering some campaigns to your AOL subscribers. We’ve been in talks with the AOL postmaster since the issue was identified and are hoping to have the issue resolved as soon as possible (the big guys aren’t the most nimble unfortunately).

In the mean time, we’ll be delivering all your campaigns as normal, but holding off sending your emails to your AOL recipients until they can guarantee the issue is resolved. We’ll be posting an update here the moment they can give us that confirmation.

Update (6pm US EST): We’ve just had confirmation from AOL that they’re aware of the issue and are resolving it now, just waiting for a final confirmation and green light. More here soon.

Update (7.20pm US EST): The issue has now been resolved and we’ll be resuming delivery to your AOL recipients in the next 24 hours. Thanks for your patience.

    Thanks, David.  It would be helpful to know when these problems first started, or you became aware of them.  Were they in existence on 24 Nov?

    I feel your pain. We were blacklisted somehow by AOL. (Never could determine why, nor would AOL tell us.) Good luck getting it taken care of.

    Thanks for the support Chris, we’ve just had confirmation that they’re aware of the issue and are resolving it now.

    John, this issue only started late on the 29th, so it wouldn’t have impacted any campaigns sent prior to this.

    Thanks, Dave.  AOL is on a different planet - grin. Glad you got it sorted.

    AOL is blocking all emails from us sent by CM. Is AOL still an issue?
