We experience quite a few problems getting emails to folks that use AOL. It seems that AOL blocks quite a bit of your email probably without you even knowing that they are doing that. Many of the folks that have tried to sign up for membership in SOI with an AOL email address never receive the automatic emails to get their account completed and setup.
If you are going to sign up for an SOI account or already have one and want to use an AOL email address you must make sure you do whatever you have to do to be able to receive email from email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org first. If you don't list that email with AOL as being approved you will most likely never receive any emails from us and will be unable to complete your membership information.
