AOL Email Difficulties
Simutronics.com and play.net domains are having an extremely difficult time sending email to aol.com addresses. We have been rate limited by AOL due to the amount of spam being delivered to those addresses. The email marked as spam is primarily coming from spammers who are taking advantage of the firstname.lastname@example.org program that we offer to our customers. This makes the spam appear to be coming from Simutronics.

We are taking additional aggressive steps to reduce the amount of spam, but as you are probably aware, the spammers are also taking aggressive steps to bypass checks used by anti-spam software.
At this point, we suggest changing your email address to something other than aol.com to continue to receive email from Simutronics or through your email@example.com. There are many free email sites available, such as Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail. There are also any number of smaller free email sites that you may choose.
We apologize for this situation. We are monitoring it closely and hope to have a better solution soon.
