Try as hard as I might I can't get through to Coastal Forces Plans via email. I purchased some plans three and a half weeks ago and am trying to confirm they were posted. I paid via Paypal without trouble but every time I have tried contact via (alross2@aol.com) email listed on his website i get the following message

554 5.7.1 Your mail could not be delivered because the recipient is only
   accepting mail from specific email addresses.

Anyone have a different method to contact from Australia?

Al Ross is usually good as gold.
If you want to try the telephone, you might reach him at Bluejacket Shipcrafters, Searsport, Maine. He's also on this Forum often. I'm confident he will set things right.

For some reason...

I've been having this issue with overseas orders. I don't have any screening set up to reject mail other than normal spam. I will dig into my PayPal account and see if your address and order is there.

Hey Al....

I maintain e-mail servers for a living (amongst other types as well) and that error looks to me more like a server-side thing and nothing that would be in your settings. I suspect a call to AOL support may be your best option. A search for that error message online turned up a lot of posts about AOL that were never resolved with "this is how I fixed it.." type of posts.

Tracy helped me with a similar problem

March 1 2012, 6:48 PM 

I was trying to communicate via email to a company in Poland that uses an email with a ".pl" extension. The company mistook Tracy for me (Rusty White) and returned the email to him. Apparently Yahoo's servers weren't set up to accept the ".pl" extension that resulted in the emails not getting through to me. He saw the mistake and forwarded it to me.

Long story short, Tracy noticed the ".pl" extension and suggested I contact Yahoo tech support. I did, and they sent in a report so that Yahoo would now recognize the ".pl" extension. It took three days to get set up, but I can now communicate with my client in Poland. I would suggest you take Tracy's advice. Your problem sounds quite similar to mine.
