We have a whitelisting agreement with AOL for all of our users
(licensees), and we found them to be very easy to work with and we
did not have to sign our life away. Of course, we are able to prove
that all lists coming through our users are confirmed opt-in, so if
they block them they will be positively blocking email which their
users have definitely requested. They seem to understand that. :-)
