Last night, I sent bulk mail announcing my new Training Center location and bcc'd everyone. 115 were to AOL.COM.

Today, I first sent an uncompressed 4.78MB Access MDB file and then resent it as <1MB Zip file. Both bounced back from my primary ISP account and from my business account, which is relayed over optonline. My Yahoo account cooperated without a hitch.

Now, I am being blocked by AOL. I can no longer even send text messages to this recipient from my ISP or my business account. Here is the error message I receive:

Error 554 ISP:B2 http://postmaster.info.aol.com/images/px_black.gif

554 ISP:B2
The IP address on your ISP's network has generated a high volume of mail to AOL and has exceeded our rate limit. Possible causes include a compromised or virus-infected personal computer or a non-disclosed server relaying mail within the ISP's network. SOLUTION:
Please contact your ISP for assistance in securing your computer or have them Contact AOL (http://postmaster.info.aol.com/contact/) to alert us to the addition of this mail relay.
If you need additional information please Contact Us (http://postmaster.info.aol.com/contact/).

Thanks for the info.

The 113 recipients were broken up into 5 separate mesaages. Apparently, AOL has blacklisted my IP.

16mb file size limit. 100 recipients per message.
