    Due to our system not being setup with Reverse DNS, how do you set up reverse dns on a cpanel server, red hat 7.x

    I don't believe reversed dns is the issue. My parents are on AOL, I have no reverse dns on my server, I have several clients that use AOL, and I have never had problems sending mail to AOL accounts. I have heard this AOL/reverse DNS thing a lot, but I have never actually seen this work that way. I think you need to find out from AOL why your mail is bouncing. I bet that they have blacklisted your IP for some reason.

    Interesting. I don't have any reversed dns on my server, and I can send to AOL addresses just fine. It is an interesting problem. I had it rDNS setup on a pervious server. I just contacted my server provider and asked them to set it up. My understanding is that the ip owner has to do it.

    heres an update

    changed the root ip (of server) and was able to send emails to aol, at the same time, that ip block was spewed (fricken morons) 64.71.xxx, so i moved the ip to a nonspew, so im not sure if aol uses spews or not....
