In accordance with feedback loop policies for AOL, Yahoo, MSN, ect we are implementing a system to unsubscribe from newsletter and deal alerts users who mark those emails as spam. We also need to stop sending all email to users who bounce or fully reject our email.
We have been having lots of problems where AOL and Yahoo users haven't been getting emails for hours and sometimes days because we didn't follow these policies strictly enough and have ended up on the ISPs junk mail senders list.
If you are having problems or are no longer receiving messages please check that your email account is up to date and then check your clients or accounts settings and spam filters to make sure you are not rejecting or spamming email from slickdeals.net. You may also want to set up a filter for email from slickdeals to never mark as spam.
As a separate issue, if you receive an activation email with a broken or unusable activation link please let us know by forwarding the email with a message to the email Schooby posted above.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

I'm being a bunny and there is nothing you can do to stop me.
It happened to me. I had to switch from my AOL e-mail address to a gmail address, just to get the activation e-mail, when I requested it be sent. I had tried switching to another AOL address first, but it didn't work, either (as far as requesting, then getting an activation e-mail). This shows that this problem is not tied in to marking a particular piece of SD mail as junk/spam by accident. I have no idea if it is accidentally marked as such for one AOL account, if it carries over to other addresses under the same master account.

I am using AOL for my slickdeals account and I finally did get my account verification e-mail several hours after I requested it and it was flagged as spam this has been a issue forever now with deal alerts never showing up or if they did 12 hours late.
It got worst with the 2.0 update the e-mails now half the time they are late then 100% of the time they are marked as spam.
I would switch to a new gmail for here but google will not let me make a 3rd email and my first 2 are for work and personal use.
BTW why does it say I am a new user now and I lost my avatar? Is that why I can't see PM's on my phone anymore?
I guess it was a bug I got my level and avatar back now that was odd.

It happened to me today. It was fine this morning but this afternoon it wouldn't let me post. I had to change my email address from an aol email to a yahoo email then I got the activation email link, so it is working for now.
This shows that this problem is not tied in to marking a particular piece of SD mail as junk/spam by accident.
We are on AOL's bad senders list. AOL queues ALL of our mail for extended periods of time and much of it automatically ends up in the spam folder. Our only recourse now is to purge bounces and unsubscribe spams and wait for our ratio to improve so we can qualify for a whitelist.
