Why can't I send mail to AOL accounts?

Postby admin » Wed Sep 12, 2007 12:30 pm

This is a common problem for home DSL users who run their own mail server. Usually the reason for this is that AOL believes you are a SPAM threat and blocks your mail. This is usually determined by your IP address being a dynamically allocated IP and there is usually only one option for getting around it. If you have access to another SMTP (your ISP usually provides one), you can reroute all AOL mail via that. It is less likely that AOL would block your ISP and so this makes an invisible fix to the problem. Rerouting can be set up by creating a static route for aol.com in the Outgoing Mail service. This static route should be configured to run in relay mode.
