AOL mail servers rejecting Slickdeals email

My Verizon email was recently switched to AOL's servers, and I've been experiencing delivery problems (mostly delays, but there have apparently been some rejected emails). One that I've just noticed is that mail from certain sites (including Slickdeals) is being rejected with "521 5.2.1 : AOL will not accept delivery of this message." (I can see this error because my private domain email goes first to Gmail, then forwarded to AOL/Verizon). It would appear that AOL's servers are enforcing something that other mail servers are not, and it's specific to a few sites (Target and Fitbit emails are also being rejected). Is there someone at SD who would like to investigate this and perhaps go after AOL for this stupid restriction (or worst case fix whatever they don't like, but I'd rather you get AOL to change things so email from other sites I can't contact as easily can get thru).

I've submitted a complaint on the AOL Postmaster page but having someone here complain would likely be more effective.
