Hi Sally & Terry,

We've received your e-mails and will be forwarding them to our e-mail team to investigate. We will update you on what we will need to do next.

Thank you,

Re: AOL is blocking E-mail from Hughesnet addresses -

Thank you, Amanda. What is strange is that three days prior to today's blockage, my friend had sent me an alternate email address (her business AOL address) to use and that was the one blocked, Then today her home email address was blocked, so it was progressive issue for past 3 days. I have contacted her on Facebook to report the issue, as well as having my daughter in another state and using SBCglobal send emails to the AOL addresses to see if they get through or are also blocked.  This should be a fair test to see where the fault lies.

AOL was blocked for me a bout a week ago, and after a few days it opened up again.  Then this morning, it was blocked again.


Thank you, Amanda - I hope they can resolve this with AOL -

Re: AOL is blocking E-mail from Hughesnet addresses -

Another weird twist in this tale.....my friend (whom I am blocked from emailing by hughesnet) has website that contains her email link (the AOL one) and I was able to click the link and send her an email via the link (which is sent from my hughesnet email). I did this at 3:17 this afternoon and thus far the email has not been bounced back.  ?????? Why would this make a difference?

Re: AOL is blocking E-mail from Hughesnet addresses -

Sally, your issue is different than mine.  Your error message is different also.  Mine are being blocked by AOL, but your message seems to be saying the E-mail address is glitched.  Since you could use the link you found, that seems to say the same thing. 

Try this:

Click on that link, and when the e-mail opens COPY the address in the "to" line.

Now go to your address book, look your friend up, EDIT them, SELECT the E-mail address you have listed for them, then PASTE the address from the link in there.

Hey All

Just talked to my brother yesterday he has AOL and hasn't received most of the email I sent him.  He did receive one out of many all it contained was a link that didn't work but worked for everyone else I sent it to.  I agree there is a problem somewhere between AOL and HughesNet. 

I used my gmail account to send them via Thunderbird SMTP so it almost has to be something  between Hughes and AOL.  I can't imagine what it could be but must have something to do with TCPIP handshake.

Terry, I already copied and pasted the correct email address for my friend. In fact, when she sent me an email FROM that address I "replied" with her email, and even that bounced back as "undeliverable".

What it boils down to, is AOL has blacklisted Hughes for some reason - usually for excess SPAM, scams, or something like that.  Hughes has to talk to AOL in order for them to remove Hughes from the blacklist.

And yes, Gary, SOME of mine have gone through also.  I have a daily devotion I write and distribute to several people, one of which is an AOL address.  In the last ten days, two have gone through.

AOL is also blocking gmail accounts today. Go figure.

Re: AOL is blocking E-mail from Hughesnet addresses -

The first computer I bought to connect with the internet came with free AOL for several months.  When I had put up with their idiocy for about ten days, my wife BEGGED me to drop them and PAY FOR some other service so I would quit ranting and pounding the keyboard every time AOL insinuated itself between me and the internet.  It is an OK service for someone who knows NOTHING about computers or the internet, but they are a real pain for anyone else.

I had EarthLink for some years, but finally could not stand the snail pace of dial-up, so investigated Satellite services; Hughes FAR outshines all others in this.
