AOL reads WTKSC???

Here's something cool: Just hours after the WTKSC post about AOL's proposed "e-mail tax," the company has decided to rethink their approach. Apparently, they're going to exempt not-for-profit e-mail senders from the fee which would allow mass mailers to avoid the company's spam filters.

In all seriousness, there isn't any real correlation to WTKSC, but Charles Stiles, AOL's Postmaster, said that "[there] will be no requirement, ever, for not-for-profits who deliver e-mail to AOL members to pay for e-mail certification and delivery."

In addition, AOL is talking about the possibility that they would actually pay for third-party verification of e-mail from some organizations.

Now that the AOL policy won't affect schools, it takes it off of the WTKSC radar ... schools won't have to pay to send e-mails. And that's very cool.
