Sprint finally got our DNS changed to resolve the server name to the IP
that our mail goes out on.  Now the AOL is flowing freely.  All the
other warnings from the dns website appear to be a non issue.  
 
Thanks for the help.

        Sorry, try again. As part of anti-spam filtering, incoming
messages to many servers have tests that are run against them. These
tests including checking how e-mail is sent to the sending domain,
meaning that your incoming e-mail settings are indeed checked.

         

        If you do not know where your SMTP logs are...

         

        By default they are in %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\logs\ I
think but you should have moved them from there already.

        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.

                http://www.MSExchange.org/

                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.
