    Email to AOL addresses from Apple's iCloud email servers are being bounced by AOL.

    Based on my research, this problem has arisen in the past before. I'd never seen it until today. Cool, huh?

    Good to hear not everyone is seeing this bounce back. I had not before today.

    Same thing in the UK

    I live in the UK.

    One of my most regular correspondents doesn't receive any mac mails from me without a 24 hours delay. He can send but doesn't receive.

    Mals I send from Outlook get there straight away.

    He is an AOL user and I can only think this is the reason for the fault.

    Does anyone know of a fix?

    Thanks in advance.

    AOL as an ISP? Do they still provide that service?

    Perhaps if that is the case, its time to move to a new provider.

    It's him not me in that case.

    And I'm the only sender he has the problem with.

    I had this issue when I did the "send as" feature in gmail with my iCloud email. It would kick every email back. ONLY people that still use AOL are my parents so I had to remove that feature which is annoying.

    I'm not using this feature, at least not to my knowledge. It was an email sent using my @me.com address. What got my attention was the "permanent block" notice. I don't know how or if Apple can be informed of this sort of thing. Perhaps they have a way of monitoring it.

    I have a friend with an AOL email address and my last email to him on April 15 did not bounce from my iCloud email address. So it does not appear they are blocking iCloud senders entirely.

    Another theory is they blocked only one of Apple's IP address so the affect is random for senders. I will try again and see what happens.
