Same issue I reported when the lists were first moved off RootsWeb. On  
RootsWeb the servers that sent out the list mail were whitelisted by most ISPs  
but the I don't think anyone has done the work to get the new server  
whitelisted. I'm GETTING the list mail but it lands in my spam folder most of  
the time and I have to fish it out. If AOL continues to identify the list mail 
 as spam (which is likely) eventually they will block it also like Comcast 
is  doing. Someone needs to take the initiative to get the server 
whitelisted with  any blocking ISPs.

It looks  like the Grinch at Comcast has stolen my Christmas!  I'm still 
not  receiving anything from the APG lists and Comcast says "it appears as 
though  there might be an issue with blocked email." 

Is anyone else on the  list having trouble? Comcast claims that they don't 
block individual  e-mail.  My e-mail stopped from the "apgmembersonlylist"  
and  "apgpubliclist" on December 8.  I ended up subscribing to the public 
list  using my Google gmail account just to convince  myself  APG listers  
weren't just off taking a holiday break.

I found only 2 people posting  from Comcast on  the APG public list in 
December -- myself and Kathleen  Hinckley on December 13. It looks like 
Comcast's actions are having a small  impact on list subscribers especially during a 
lull in list traffic during the  holidays.
