AOL is doing very stupid things with blocking. They take your mail and
drop it on the floor, you'll never get any indication that they did
For that matter, they blocked google.com (where I work now) for 2 weeks
and independantly Emailed us to complain that we weren't answering their
business Emails (answers that they were dropping on the floor)...
You have to call them to get that fixed, they are reasonably good once
you get them on the phone. In our case (and probably all/most others),
they never told us why we had been blocked in the first place, except
that they had fixed it.
