AOL list members hit by e-mail glitch
July 24, 2001
America Online subscribers who are on Yahoo Groups lists are experiencing glitches and have not received any e-mail from the lists since last week.
AOL said Monday that the problem arose late last week when Yahoo did not notify AOL that it had changed its IP addresses on some of its servers, including those that have the Yahoo Groups e-mails. Because AOL was not notified, the company's servers identified the mail coming from Yahoo as spam.
"This has caused AOL users who are subscribers to Yahoo Groups to miss three to four days worth of e-mails," Robert Neill Jr., a publisher and moderator of 80 Yahoo Groups. --Gwendolyn Mariano, Special to ZDNet News
