Yesterday I asked:

Aside from the obvious, "Nuke-em, they are only AOL'ers" responses, the
majority of replies formed a concensus that these error messages are
increasing quickly since AOL adopted flat rate pricing.
One very important piece of information is that an AOL member's mailbox is
limited to 500 messages and this limit does not seem to be based on a disk
quota. Therefore, either encouraging new AOL list members or moving
"bouncing" members to digested versions of lists is a good solution.
A number of you noted that other domains are giving us a larger workload.
It's nice to know I'm not the only one experiencing these problems. Thanks
for the feedback.
