I have a MindSpring address...but on here (NewtonTalk) I use the me.com one. I was trying to determine how this could affect me, if at all...I do have "mindspring.com" as the domain provider for the NewtonPhoenix website's email, and I'm wondering if that has somehow been affected....

Subject: [NTLK] [ADMIN] NewtonTalk whitelisted with Earthlink

Hello everyone.

After a fair amount of of complaining on Twitter, I was contacted by  
someone in the email group at Earthlink. After explaining the ongoing  
problems we've been experiencing with our list server getting blocked,  
he looked into the issue for me.

Here's some of the information he shared:

> I couldn't get an exact number on the amount of complaints, but what

> Sorry about that.

There you go.

The NewtonTalk list is now officially whitelisted with Earthlink. All  
list members with earthlink.com and mindspring.com addresses should  
receive messages without any problems in the future. Theoretically.

Now I feel kinda bad I was so bitchy on Twitter about this. Kinda.
