People build their mail systems to be insensitive to the burps and
snurgles of outside environments. you think AOL is bad, here's a hint:
go out and get a few hundred subscribers in Italy, Greece and France.
You'll never complain about AOL again.

If you're list is sensitive to when client systems have problems, don't
blame the client systems. Places all over the internet are lurching and
sneezing. If you don't fix it for AOL, someone else will give you a
cold later...

(all IMHO, of course)
