What was the deal with AOL email and dns this week?
For the last week Aol has been having what looks to be DNS issues resolving outside email servers. I received a lot of phone calls about this issue all week. I was able to call AOL noc or abuse line and they told me that they were aware of the situation and it would be fixed in 24-48 hours. It did take a bit longer than a day but this problem caused me a bunch of trouble with mad customers. I'm amazed that it would take AOL a week to solve such an issue and I'm surprise at how many people still rely on it.
