Mail status "currently unavailable"

When I check the status of mail sent to one aol e-mail address does it show as "currently unavailable" even though prior to october 2010 it would show the status.  Now I can no longer see the status for that address no matter when it was sent but now I can't.  Also, in october 2010 one particular aol e-mail address suddenly changed from all caps to all small letters even if I type the e-mail address myself it defaults to all small letters.

We are currently in the process of migrating our email accounts to a new server.  For a short time, those that are on the new server will not be able to see the status of emails sent to those on the old server, and vice-versa.  You can, however, still see the status of emails sent to users on the same server, whichever that may be.

Been getting the same answer from AOL for more than a year!! "Technical people are working on installation of new servers". "Will be corrected shortly"!!

I've been having the exact two problems that Dale has been having. I wish that AOL would send an email to it's customers to say that it's making changes and how customers may be effected. I was so annyoed when they discontinued the 'unsend' option, but didn't tell anyone!

I wonder if the changes that AOL are making have anything to do w/ a message I keep getting in Outlook?

I've seriously considered discontinuing my AOL service. I've been a member since 1994!

AOL is going backwards. Get with it AOL

Status "currently unavailable"

Penny, thank you for your note. Now I know I'm not the only one out there with this problem. And it doesn't seem to be converting to the new server. It would be nice to have some sort of time frame. How long can it take?
