* [14:37 EST] In good news, we believe we have fixed the problem
with fetching mail from AOL accounts. We have started doing this and all
AOL accounts should start retrieving mail within the next several hours.
* [14:36 EST] We have been experiencing sporadic problems with our
DNS provider for the last day or so. While all our testing looks OK,
there is quite a bit of evidence that suggests they are returning wrong
or no information at times. We have opened a ticket with them and, in
the meantime, have eliminated any need for DNS for some internal mail
handoffs which should get rid of most of the problem. We haven't made
any DNS changes in weeks and the DNS provider has been very reliable for
a year or more, so we hope we can get to the bottom of this quickly. We
apologize for the inconvenience.

* [22:50 EST] Recently, AOL started blocking the method that we use
to retrieve email from them. We're working on a solution, but if AOL is
intentionally blocking us, it's possible that we won't be able to
restore fetching mail from AOL addresses.
