Attention AOL Email users

I am sorry I have to post this notice but most of the AOL Emails I reply to bounce back to me , if you do not hear from me within 24 hours, your AOL Server refused a reply back to your original email to me. I keep the bounced message for about a week and then delete it. so Please use an alternative email address if you really want an reply from me.


here is an example of the usual reply I get trying to reply to a email sent to me in the first place, first a delay and then a bounce

Message delivery to 'SNIPPED@aol.com' delayed SMTP module(domain @208.6.234.7:aol.com) reports: message text rejected by mailin-04.mx.aol.com: 421 SERVICE NOT AVAILABLE

I am good at answering all my email's within a few hours but with AOL email service, I give up and I will only reply one time to an AOL Email user to make sure it goes thru, before I look up a request because time after time, I tried to send the information I took time to lookup, only to have it turned back, if the test email bounces back, I will not waste my time looking up information for someone who can not recieve it.
