Email through Reflexion being rejected by AOL

Is there anything we can do? I opened case with support yesterday.  I have spent over an hour on hold for support.

  • We have a client experiencing the same issue the past month.  They were just put on Reflexion about 2 months ago and now complaining that over 50% of emails sent to AOL addresses are not going through.  This was not an issue with their previous anti-spam provider.  No NDRs are being received so they don't even know that that their emails aren't making it unless the intended recipient calls them to notify them.

    Some emails are going through but this needs to be addressed.  The client is not blacklisted anywhere and is able to successfully send to all other domains.

  • In reply to Blueclone Networks:

    Support finally responded to me and said AOL keeps randomly blocking their IP addresses.  They no longer get one set of IP addresses unblocked, but another set is blocked.  My yucky solution was a send connector that sent email to the AOL domain out over the internet instead of through Reflexion.

  • In reply to Sophos Admin2:

    This looks like an ongoing issue. I thought it was up to Sophos to monitor this type of activity and work with mail hosts to prevent from being blocked. When can we expect a more permanent solution?
