Its easy, just shut up about it already. There has been a lot of chatter about AOL dropping its whitelist in favor of Goodmail certification, mostly from people who don’t understand how it is going to affect them.
For most, it isn’t. The whitelist, and the new program, are for bulk or “high volume” mailers. If you have a web service that requires signup and email confirmation, you may have a problem and you may wind up paying. Of course, you could just require your subscribers to use an address other that AOL.
For the individual, you will still be able to send email to your great-great-great-great grandmother.
