Question trouble emailing aol accounts

I have a hotmail account for emailing and I'm having alot of trouble with emailing anyone with an AOL email account. I can receive their emails but when I respond to them the email comes back saying undeliverable. Anyone else having this trouble? or am I doing something wrong? Sometimes they go thru and sometimes not, mostly not.

Anyone with AOL email and waiting for a reply here is the reason.

I too, have a hotmail account and am having problems with AOL accounts. Can't seem to find a solution to it.

Let me know if you find out what is going on. It is not our computers. Others are having the same problem.

Mark Thompson has an earthlink e-mail account, I suppose A-O-Hell works about the same way. He says if you are not on his "safe list", your e-mail goes into the junk folder. I got on to him for months before he added me to his safe list. I can finally e-mail him and it goes thru.

I am a subscriber of Almost On Line (or Ay-O-Hell as you guys say). There is a built in filter in AOL that does not like hotmail or Yahoo accounts. There is a huge amount of spam generated through hotmail and yahoo users, so AOL automatically blocks most emails sent through hotmail and yahoo. I think I would much rather sacrifice not getting any email from hotmail and yahoo users than put up with a ton of spam. AOL has a wonderful spam filter that barely lets any spam emails get through. You do need to check your spam folder once in a while to make sure that any "wanted" emails don't end up there though.
