Short Take: AOL mail held up

America Online has confirmed that email sent via the service is being delayed due to an unusual spike in demand. The problem started Monday when some email sent to AOL addresses began to be returned, in some cases clogging up the servers of other ISPs. AOL says it has now added enough mail servers to handle about a million pieces of email each hour. But the effects of the original jam are lingering. AOL could not say when the system would clear.
