AOL is sending back a number of them as "hard bounce" which equates to "address not found" - it is basically AOL's spam filter rejecting the message.

I'm looking into what to do about it and have contacted AOL.

In the mean time you could try adding info@activefisherman.com into your contacts to see if that helps.

Those of you with AOL, are you using the AOL client or web based? Here's what the mail provider is suggesting to try if you're using the AOL application.

http://www.benchmarkemail.com/help-F...ting-my-emails

As for web based:

I'll be keeping tabs on the emails to a test AOL account as well and see what I can find to help mitigate their automatic spam filtering for this.

The first thing you might try is when it's in the spam folder (web based) select the message and then the "OK" button which should help train AOL's filter that this message is not spam - like the image below. Of course if you're not getting them in spam at all, then this won't help.

I got the activation notice in my aol Spam folder yesterday and did the "OK" thing but didn't get anything today (including in my Spam folder). Was a 6 am newsletter actually sent today?

Yes, it was. I'm working on trying to figure out why it isn't being delivered to AOL. Only AOL emails are bouncing, so it means it's an AOL filter causing that somehow.

AOL's going to reply they're very sorry, but they didn't realize anyone still knew they existed, let alone used their email service still.

How's it look for you AOL folks today? Straight to the inbox on my test account from both the development list and the live one (2 different service providers too) and I don't see any bounces in the reporting.

Just took it out of my junk folder on the ipad.

Clicked on not spam for the last 4 days with no effect.

I just added email to contacts.

Please keep me posted. I'm working to see what I can do to improve that, if anything.

I just tested after you posted this and everything works for me. Can you please try again - could have been a momentary glitch.
