The answers to questions 1-3 All have to do with incoming mail, and we
use postini for that.  Our servers internally only accept mail from
postini.  
 
I fixed #4.
 
Where exactly are the smtp logs stored?  
 
Frustrated here in KC.

        What are the indications you are getting saying that e-mail to
aol is not making it?

         

        Have you looked at the SMTP logs? AOL is usually very good about
providing the code and reason in the reject response and usually
includes a link to their postmaster site. 

         

        Here are problems with your DNS records and e-mail receiving
servers:

        1. You have 6 MX records but they all point to the same IP

        2. PTR record does not match the associated A record for the
host.

        3. Improper unmatching HELO/EHLO

        4. Not accepting e-mail to abuse address.

         

        Those 4 areas can cause e-mail delivery problems for you.

        1.  I am still fighting to get mail destined for @aol.com to go
out.  Do you all have your backend mail servers responding to pings for
reverse lookup?  I thought that goes against having a secure backend
server.

        2.  In System Managers under administrative groups/site/routing
groups/group/connectors/ I have 4 connectors 
          a. internet mail service 
          b. ms mail connector 
          c. Connector for cc:mail 
          d. dirSync Request OldMail 

        If all my reading and a so called upgrade class is correct, I
shouldn't need to recreate any of these connectors for mail to flow in
and out of the organization.  Am I correct in this train of thought?

        Thanks in advance. 

        Mike
