Email/delay in email times



I just was scrolling down some of the past questions and saw one who asked about differences in times & your response was AOL servers do delay.  So I was wondering, does email from Aol also 'bounce' off different servers in different countries?

Hello Jeff!

Thanks for your question, hope you have had a good Christmas!

Yes, it can happen that some email providers let emails coming from AOL servers bounce or just not deliver without bouncing to let the sender known. Unfortunately AOL email service  is often used by spammers to send out spam emails, hence AOL is sometimes listed at blacklists that some providers use.

Hope this helps!
Happy new year 2017!

I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using the Opera browser since year 2000 & the M2 email client since 2004. I will do my best to answer also other email related questions and email client settings related, etc. But please no Outlook or Outlook Express questions, since I do not use that. (But if you really want to ask in that field, I will sure do try my best to answer your question nicely and correctly anyway :) ). This includes but is not limited to web based email or whatever comes to your mind.


I am a Management Assistant in Informatics education which was done under the control of the CCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry). And had to solve various PC, email and other related problems. Using computers since 1990.
