    If sendmail sends an email to anything@aol.com , it just never arrives. No bounceback that I can tell. But send it with Outlook Express, and it arrives no problem. Same IP!

    Any ideas? This is obviously a big problem.

    CPanel uses exim not sendmail.

    What do you mean by 'sending with sendmail' ?

    Perhaps you mean sending mail from a php form?

    Hi there,


    although cpanel uses exim but /usr/sbin/sendmail is nothing but a symlink to exim.

    Anyway, AOL has strict checks for reply to addresses and origin addresses of the mail which it accepts. I suggest you update a reverse DNS lookup for yur server's main IP address as a solution to this.

    Please let me know if you have any questions,
    Regards,

    Reverse DNS.... HOw?

    Hello mweb,

    AOL is currently blocking email from our server. I called them and they say we don't have reverse DNS setup for the mail server. Do you know how we can set this up? Any help you could give would be appreciated!
