I am also having problems sending e-mails to aol members. Back in Feb. I canceled AOL, our area you could only use dial up. Then cable came into our area and I switched. AOL said we can send you an external modem that would work for dial-up so I could stay online. After a heated discussion about our phone lines now being fiber optics and that thier modems could not and would not make a difference they said they would mail me my cancelation notice. Well when it finally came in the mail there were several offers, including piggy back aol on my new server for $5.00 a month. When I declined is when I started having problems sending mail to aol members.
I received error messages such as 544 HVU:B1 So then I contacted AOL Tech........After 2 months of discussions they tried to say it was Yahoo blocking my mail, and that the two companies we in dispute and nothing could be done about it.
I have XP professional , I have restored , removed and tried to change my firewall. I have tried to tweek my internet settings, but have not been able to come up with a solution.
All I can say is AOL does not like to loose customers and they are the ones blocking up from sending to AOL members.Can they do this legally? Is there a way to get our mail through? Any Techs with any ideas?
Recently I have been having a difficult time sending e-mail messages to folks who have a AOL e-mail address. I can't help but think this is due to the recent up-grades that AOL put into effect dealing with spam , virusus and pop -up protection. Here is my problem. When I send an e-mail message, I receive a notice from MSN / hotmail that my message is being delayed due to the fact they couldn't make contact with the receivers mail carrier(AOL). I am advised that there's no need for me to re-send my message cause they will continue to try and make contact with the receivers mail carrier (AOL ). Within a very short time I will then receive another notice informing me that my message was Undeliverable due to the fact MSN / hotmail could not make contact with AOL. I have talked to the MSN techs and they tell me that for some unknown reason AOL is not recognizing my internet address so I should contact AOL.I have talked to the AOL techs and they tell me that the AOL folks that I am trying to send messages too have a block on my internet address. I have contacted those AOL folks (by phone)that I am trying to e-mail too and they tell me that is a LIE! They themselves have called AOL and they are told there is no block ! Why do I continue to have this problem and why can't MSN or AOL advise me as to what the problem is and help me fix the problem ? Like I said earlier This problem just started after the announced changes made by AOL! Thank You !
