    AOL mail is now managed by Yahoo, so I believe the docs on AOL are now outdated. I've found that Yahoo is pretty impossible to work with, and seems to focus primarily on email volumes. If you have a customer send out a newsletter blast, you can be sure that Yahoo will start deferring all your mail for many hours, even if the emails are fully compliant, double-opt in, etc. If Yahoo went away tomorrow, I would not shed a tear.

    PRO TIP: Many of us are using the fantastic ConfigServer Firewall (CSF) product. If you are using CSF, be sure to use the "Check for IPs in RBLs" feature in CSF. You can enable it to check all your IPs (or just some) once per hour/day/week and to email you the report. I have our IPs checked once per day, and have a filter built into my email program to trash the successful reports, and to draw attention to the failures (rare, but happens).

    Hi @sneader,

    Thanks for the report!

    I've opened an internal case to have this tutorial updated, and I'll send an update here when the changes are published.
