    I tried to reply several times by email today, but after a call to AOL, they say our server up here is sending too much spam so they are blocking incomming traffic from our server at mta.online. I notified MTA and they are to call AOL and work out the IP addresses that are screwing us all presently. We shall see how quick this happens. I will check back with them tomarrow and give 'em a nudge if they don't hurry up about it.

    Sorry bout the delay. If you have a non-AOL email let me know.

    Hi Brent,

    I have AOL myself, and had tons of problems with it in the past several weeks. My issues were software related, it took a format of the hard drive and installing a new OS to get things just right. I will look forward to your email when AOL gets things working for you again.

    Thanks
    Andrew

    PS anyone else reading this that uses AOL(and probably any other online service). Do not store passwords on your Hard Drive. Your PC can be hacked and your email account can be used to send spam, and a lot worse!!!!!

    Agunner,
    I don't use AOL myself. Your AOL provider is kicking back, or blocking my provider sent emails is the deal. Never the less, AOL is will not let emails from MTA's server through, so if you had another email server other than AOL I could send you email there. Until AOL allows traffic from the MTA server, I'm shut down gettin mail to you this route.

    I've got one computer to upgrade to XP, ME sucks!

    No Problem Brent,

    I will look forward to your email once everything gets straightened out. I wish I had another way to get it.

    If you are upgrading to XP do a clean install, don't overwrite the old OS. What ends up happening is the "possibility" of conflicts. Trust me on this one, I had conflicts. It took weeks to resolve the little bugs. I ended up formating the Hard Drive and reinstalling everything into the new OS. The computer is as good as new now.
