I get this problem every time someone from my box tries to send mail to an AOL email address.

----
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

[email protected]
SMTP error from remote mailer after MAIL FROM:<[email protected]>:
host mailin-03.mx.aol.com [64.12.136.249]: 550 REQUESTED ACTION NOT TAKEN:
DNS FAILURE
---

Anyone know why this is happenning to all mails SENT to an AOL address
and how do I fix it?

Thanks

Same Error

I'm getting the exact same error, with no luck on how to resolve the problem. Has anyone had this trouble?

I have had this problem off and on for 6 months.

I even had to change my own ISP because of the problem.

99.9% of the time this is because you lack an A entry for your hostname.

Not sure if this relates to your problem but.....


AOL ARE A BUNCH OF BASTARDS!!! Basically if for somereason they see spam comming from a server and they see enough of it they will take the Netblock and add it to their filters.... Basically this means that they block the hole NOC. Pretty lame IMO
