AOL apparently began blocking e-mail on Wednesday that contains the web address of a petition against the company's upcoming certified e-mail program. The company says this isue is just a glitch.
The Internet service provider, which has roughly 20 million subscribers in the United States, began bouncing e-mail communications with the URL "" sometime late Wednesday and continuing through Thursday.

A e-mail sent by CNET to an address and containing the URL "" bounced back on Thursday afternoon with a system administrator note that read: "The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not report a specific reason."
