Yes, AOL is very picky about who they receive mail from.

If you have correct DNS, Greeting and RDNS, you should be fine;

Yep AOL are a pain in the xxxx. A quick fix is to use a Smart Host.

In your SMTP connector, select the option "Forward all emails through this connector......" and enter your ISP's SMTP server name or IP address in the box.
