Unfortunately the AOL mail servers which are also used by CompuServe are currently rejecting mail sent by our provider 1&1 from this server. This means that any mail sent by this forum to any of these users is being returned and will not be delivered.

AOL has blacklisted the 1&1 mail server after reportedly detecting a high volume of mail traffic. Details of the specific error being returned can be seen at http://postmaster.info.aol.com/errors/554ispb2.html

We can see a number of people on the forum affected by this; typically these are Topic Reply Notification messages but will include all email including Private Message notifications. Furthermore, anyone signing up using an AOL address will not get their activation message until we manually re-send the message after detecting it has been rejected.

1&1 are currently working with AOL support to resolve this issue. I will post a reply to this message once we hear the problem is resolved.
