AOL Quietly Begins Accepting Goodmail Certified E-mail

Yes, it's probably happening right now. Goodmail Certified Email messages are wending their way to AOL subscribers. The first such messages began last week, AOL spokesman Nicholas Graham tells ClickZ. So far it's just one (unnamed) sender whose messages are slipping past spam filters and getting marked with special icons, but Graham says other senders are queued up and ready to start soon. Unsurprisingly, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the rest of the DearAOL-ers are speaking up again in opposition of the system.
