NG E-mail and AOL Jul. 20th, 2004 @ 11:12 AM Reply

For some time now we have had problems getting our emails out to AOL users. This is because our mail servers were not set up to the standard that AOL was looking for. Now that we have acquired the skillful services of Tim as our full time sysadmin he has made improvements to our mail system that will hopefully allow our emails to get through to AOL users. However, to confirm this we are asking our AOL users if they have recently been able to get our email? If you have recently signed up for a NG account and got a verification email from us to validate your account please respond to this and let us know! If you are an AOL user and don't have a NG account you can try and sign up for one and let us know how you make out.

One of our users told us he set his mail filters up so blocked emails would be sent to his spam folder. So AOL users may want to try this if they aren't receiving our emails to their regular mail folder.

Also don't forget about our new monthly prize give away where you can win an XBOX, PS2, Gamecube, Game Boy SP, or 3 games of your choice (see contest page for details)!

Awesome prizes Wade. But where are my stickers? There are places not being vandalized and kittens not being covered. Do it for the kittens Wade.

lol, i hope that tip helped wade, i was pissed off when i could'nt get my ng confirmation e-mail, thank god i found out about the spam folder, also for everyone else, the idea of the spam folder thing also works on any other confirmation e-mails from any other sites that get blocked because they use automated bots.

i hope i helped get some ppl on newgrounds while that problem was on the site. if it did then im happy :)

Poor AOL users, no matter what they do AOL screws them over.
Don't we all just love Tim, the one post admin. Maybe he'll someday have 2 posts. I can't wait to see who wins the contest.

Thank the Fucking lord For Comcast is all I have to say. Not one problem...although it does cost a bit to get the spyware and Virus protection that is not with it, but What the fuck, it isn't as bad as AOL!

Tim, the 1 post administrator.

Is there anything to do about AOL users with the same IP adress not being able to vote on the same movies?

I don't have AOL so I can't tell you if the new upgrades are working or not.. But I just checked out that contest page... Wow, if thats monthly. The number of times you can enter, like 30, for the thousands of members logging their points daily. Hory shits... Chances are like 1 and 250,000 atleast. I guess. Whoever wins that is one lucky SOB.
