Dead email domain:

The email domain was previously owned by AOL, then Verizon, then Yahoo, as the email services and corporate oversight changed for the AOL/Yahoo email services. From the context, it sounds as though it was once possible to have an email address at the domain name -- but no longer. Email service for was ended by AOL/Yahoo as of July 31, 2022.

It looks as though the domain name was sold to a new company, which was speculated to have netted the domain owner rather a large sum of money.

As of October 2022, the domain does currently have an MX record (pointing to Google), but any addresses on a typical marketer's legacy list is likely going to be from the AOL days and not up to date, so I recommend suppressing those addresses.

Please feel free to leave your best "love is dead" jokes in the comments below!
