Update: AOL Image Rendering

We’ve gotten word from some people that ran the same tests that we did yesterday that our posting on the AOL.com image rendering was wrong. These tests showed pre-existing AOL or AIM accounts that had not had their display settings changed and they see that the images are now turned off by default – a change from the initial setting. This is different from the results of our testing on our seed accounts that had also not been changed in any way. In our tests these existing accounts still showed images defaulting to the on setting.

This may be due to the way that AOL is rolling out the change, with not all accounts being updated simultaneously. We’ve been in contact with AOL on this and will get official word to you later today. Stay tuned…
