Yesterday, Information Services started receiving reports of problems
sending e-mail to addresses at America On-Line (AOL.COM). Any notes
being sent from MUSICB or MUSICA accounts were being bounced back to
the sender with an error message. We investigated this and determined
that AOL made a change in their e-mail servers on Tuesday night
which has caused this problem. Their servers now reject any e-mail that
contains certain types of records, including ones created by our
e-mail servers. This problem has also hit a number of other places
on the Internet.
This morning, AOL staff finally returned our calls and basically stated
that they had no intention of removing this restriction from their
despite the fact that it is clearly not "legal" (in a network sense). IS
is currently investigating ways we may be able to circumvent the problem,
but a solution will not come quickly.
In the meantime, we are holding all e-mail sent to AOL.COM in our queues.
When we find a solution, we will release the mail for delivery. This
also affect e-mail sent from CMS or via Eudora on the PC.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this is causing. Unfortunately, we
others) are the victims of an arbitrary decision made at AOL. We will
to find a solution as soon as possible.
