Re: *** ADMIN: AOL.COM users no longer allowed to post



fixed

what I do not understand is why does the mail sent by a listserv have to
say it is being sent from a yahoo or AOL server? I see that messages from
the midrange.com listserv say they are from the email account that posted
the message to midrange-l. When that message is broadcast to all the
subscribers on the list, the subscribers who are yahoo or AOL are going to
reject those messages because those servers say the message is not from
yahoo or AOL.

Is that correct? Can the listserv broadcast the messages posted to it as
from the listserv? That would also solve the problem of a member of the
listserv having their email address broadcast on the internet everytime
they post a message to a discussion group.

Folks:

Looks like AOL is joining Yahoo in a joint effort to destroy significant
parts of the internet.

According to this blog post:
http://postmaster-blog.aol.com/2014/04/22/aol-mail-updates-dmarc-policy-to-reject/,
they are making the same change that Yahoo did. As such, this will cause
any posts by AOL users to be rejected by Gmail, Hotmail, Comcast, Gmail,
Yahoo, & AOL.

At the present time, my only course of action is to prevent AOL and Yahoo
users from being able to post to any midrange.com lists.

If you use Yahoo or AOL, please consider switching to Gmail or Hotmail for
midrange.com mailing list subscriptions.

As always, if you have any questions, contact me at support@xxxxxxxxxxxx.
