There has been quite a rumbling in the industry since AOL announced that it will be "discontinuing" its enhanced white list and instituting a paid-for service that has a relative "postage" fee for e-mail delivery provided through Goodmail Systems.

Every company has an e-mail reputation, one that dictates if its messages reach the inbox, get junked or go missing. Lately, it seems everyone has a new, fast-track way to get a good e-mail reputation. It can be hard to figure out who to listen to and what you should care about.
