Email with secure links bounced by AOLAsked by HFOA on January 31, 2014 at 01:35 PM
Hi, I have read all of the questions about how autoreponders do not come to aol addresses. I followed all of the instructions on your site and even signed up for a mandrill account allow me to send the emails using my own domain.
I finally narrowed down what was preventing the emails from arriving at aol and that was I was including the secure jotform link to my form. Once I changed this to the non secure link the email finally goes through. I did try a different secure link (not jotform) and that went through also.
So AOL must have a filter in place that prevents emails with jotform secure links in it.
This is an example of the secure link. If it is in the body of an email, it will not arrive at aol.
Here is the bounce message:
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

To bad JotForm and AOL do not play nice.
Just thought you all should know this.
It would be nice to use the secure form though. Please advise if there will ever be a fix for this.
JotForm, being a free service, is prone to abuses by spammers, phishers and the likes, so we understand how it can be hard to make it work with other web services. We are definitely trying to reduce that impact, though.
Anyway, have you tried using https://www.jotform.co instead of https//secure.jotform.co ?
Hope this helps.
