AOL Reverses Whitelist Decision

A couple of days ago I mentioned that AOL would begin implementing Goodmail's cryptographic CertifiedEmail program and would phase out its IP-based Enhanced Whitelist.

Well, the last couple of days, rumour had it that AOL will not do away with its Enhanced Whitelist after all. Apparently AOL reversed its decision on the whitelist after numerous email senders and providers lashed out against the company in blogs and public statements (Mark Brownlow provides a nice overview of all the comments in this post).

AOL spokesman Nicholas Graham told DM News that "the Enhanced Whitelist is going to remain a useful tool. People who are on today will continue to use [its] privileges and benefits".
