Who should handle this?

When an email is broadcast from the ward via lds.org, AOL is treating ldschurch.org group email broadcasts as spam.

AOL message: CON Blocks 554 CON:B1 The IP address has been blocked due to a spike in unfavorable e-mail statistics.

It's possible that the problem is not the "from", but the number of "to"s. I believe that AOL is not the only one that does this.

There were only 4 email addrs to aol.com (suppressed the names to protect the innocent). I would be surprised if 4 would trip a spam alarm...

As ggllbb says, it's probably the number of recipients that flags it as spam, or maybe the fact that it's "undisclosed recipients."
