Hi Norman,

   IMO, businesses with mailing lists should send them separately anyway... at least that's what I've always seen done.  This protects the identity of the clients, looks neater, and avoids problems like the one you mentioned.

Subject: [thelist] AOL Labeling Opt-In List as Spam 

I have a client with an opt-in mailing list that has a good many AOL 
email addresses. When I attempted to send an HTML announcement last 
night, AOL rejected every one as SPAM. I tried sending a plain-text 
message and it was rejected as well. I ended up having to send each one 
individually, which worked. Does anyone have a resource that can help 
me figure out why AOL is rejecting these (while 99% of the regular 
emails made it ok) and how to fix this?
