I send an email notice every week to every Plus Edition subscriber, telling each subscriber of the new articles that have been added in the previous week. AOL used to block those messages but, about a year ago, something changed at AOL and the AOL members started receiving them. Unfortunately, AOL now seems to have reverted back to blocking those messages again.
Starting two or three weeks ago, my in-box started filling up with messages from Plus Edition subscribers saying they had not received the latest notice. One thing was obvious: all of those messages came from email addresses ending in "@aol.com."
To all AOL members: I suggest you do one or more of three things:
- Contact AOL Customer Service and ask them to stop blocking the Plus Edition newsletters sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Obtain a second email address, such as a free email address on Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, or others. They all receive the Plus Edition newsletters every week. You can use any of those as a SECOND email address, keeping your AOL address also, should you wish to do so. After using the second address for a few weeks, you may discover that it works better than AOL anyway and want to switch permanently. The choice is yours to make. You don't have to switch.
- Don't forget that you can ALWAYS read the Plus Edition newsletters online, regardless of what AOL does to your in-box. You don't have to wait for a notice. There is never a reason to miss a newsletter.
