[Mailman-Users] AOL Whitelist

I actually have had zero problems with them after the initial whitelisting  
eighteen months ago - except it took over a week when I moved my server.  
(They said it should take 48 hours.)  I send almost 300,000 to them three 
times a week  - all without problems, plus normal hosting emails. They are 
always extremely responsive.

Now with all the changes in Hotmail last week  - THEY are a problem.  Their 
whitelist through BondedSender.com will cost me almost three grand a year.

That's what I've done.  AOL was an ongoing headache, and I got tired
of their high-handedness.  AOL subscribers who want to receive my
list can use free yahoo or gmail accounts, and many of them do.
