I know the features required by AOL (http://postmaster.aol.com/trouble/mailer.html
) and I have followed these excellent tutorials at http://www.amset.info/exchange/dnsconfig.asp
but I still have the "classic" problem sending to AOL.com.
I have Exchange 2003 SP2 + W2003 DC server + Popcon pop3 connector. I have the Virtual SMTP server forced to use external DNS (due problems with exchange and non exchange users). Then I can send OK to all places, except AOL.com that is allways retrying.
It seems that all is checked ok. As I am at DSL line with static IP and my ISP can't add my DNS reverse setup ok, I have setup a SMTP Connector only for AOL domain. I also have configured my SMTP Virtual server propierties with mail.mydomain.com (these name is correct because if you type this from WAN you will get to my IP). I put mail.myhosting.com or its Ip with [ ] and with its SMTP authentification detail login etc.
At the queue list I see that the AOL pending emails are changed to another queue list "Relay for Aol.com [217.xxx.x.x.x]" But I get error: the remote server do not respond to connection (translated to english, sorry). I tried too with the server name of ISP mail server and the same. All AOL.com messages are still re-trying.
Any ideas? Thank you all
