    Hi,

    A client has copied an emil to me that suggests that AOL have had complaints that spam has originated from my server. I've disabled all scripts and looked to see if there are any insecure ones running. Is there any way I can tell if my server has been routing spam. It doesn't appear to be listed in any open relay lists. Also what versions of formmail are secure...

    Thanks in advance...

    I get these messages as well.

    Something I have been wondering is; what happens when people have their email forwarded to an AOL account. All the spam gets forwarded as well, but now it appears to be coming from my servers? Am I right in this assumption?
    :confused:

    I had this problem as well call AOL the telephone number is 1-888-212-5537. They will ask for your mail server's IP then they will look it up and tell you why it's blocked. In my case I just had to add a rdns entry. Once the rdns was working I called them back they checked it and unblocked the server. First time I have ever had a good experience with AOL.
