    Default AOL rejection

    I run a very small personal maillist in connection with a HS team and
    have just received a mass rejection from AOL that says for each AOL
    account on the list:

    Final-Recipient: rfc822; <com>
    Action: failed
    Status: 5.1.0 MAIL FROM: <net> 554 REPLY:
    554-:__(ISP:B2)__AOL_is_not_currently_accepting_email_ from_your_point_of_origin_through_your_ISP.__Pleas e_contact_your_ISP's_TecCODE=DL0
    Diagnostic-Code: smtp; Permanent Failure: Other address status
    Last-Attempt-Date: Sun, 29 Feb 2004 02:48:41 -0000

    What are my choices for fixing this? I suppose I could use my .mac
    account, but are there others? If I must deal with AOL, is there one
    department that's better than the dozen others?

    Wow! That's the ticket. Just got off the phone with them, no wait! and
    it is an issue they have with too many complaints re Comcast, so it's-
    many of the Comcast servers, but not all- due to being blocked for the
    time being.

    Why not contact comcast? AOL may be blocking Dynamic IP addresses sending
    mail through their own SMTP servers. Are you doing that? Perhaps the
    comcast mail server you went through just sent a bunch of spam from hijacked
    proxies owned by comcast renters. But comcast is the place to begin with
    this.

    AOL periodically blocks dynamic IP addresses at broadband and DSL
    lines because of unauthorized SMTP servers running on them. If you
    are in the same trunk as the server that is blocks, your mail will
    likely also be blocked.

    I know a fellow who was running a list on his own machine that ran
    into this. He eventually had to reconfigure to send through his ISP's
    smtp server.

    For what ist worth, I run a legit list, 5 actually, all housed at my
    ISP and properly sent and AOL has been globally blocking some but not
    all of the list mail this past week. I suspect that its a problem on
    the AOl end. Possibly a misconfigured spam filter.

    Since my non-AOl people are getting list mail OK, it appears they are
    the problem - yet again.

    Talk with AOL.

    Their anti-spam people are viciously aggressive, and they often end
    up blocking legitimate mailing lists. Depending on what their mood
    is when you call, they may or may not give a damn about you and your
    list.

    They may make you sign some rather large doents full of legal-ese,
    effectively making you swear that everybody on your list wants to be
    there and that you're not a spammer. They have done this in the
    past. If they do, be sure to have a lawyer review the doent -
    some people have had serious problems with it and have refused to
    sign. (Their lists, therefore, don't get through to any AOL
    customers.)
