DMARC and a legacy email account on AIM (AOL).com
May 12, 2014 2:00 PM Subscribe
I have had an AIM.com email account (That's AOL Instant Messenger -AIM, for all you young folks) since 1999. It is brain dead simple email service, which is why I have kept it so long. It doesn't try to reorder your messages or roll them up into streams. I know, I am a Luddite. But in the past two weeks AOL has reset its DMARC policies to do with alias spoofing and now all my email is being rejected by major carriers like Gmail. Reason being, my address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and the outgoing server is at AOL.com. I have poked around the site for awhile, but can't find any obvious fixes. I wrote to AOL.com, but have not received a reply yet. Has anyone else faced and fixed this problem?
