Are you on any kind of DSL or dynamic IP connection?
If so then you will be on AOL's blacklist and it will be almost
impossible to get off. 

I have given up trying to fight AOL on issues like this and now use an
SMTP Connector to route email for AOL and any other domain that I have
problems with via the ISPs SMTP server.

Subject: [exchangelist] AOL - how to get this work?

When trying to send email to AOL, my smtp server is getting response:

554- AOL does not accept e-mail transactions from IP addresses which
554- generate complaints or transmit unsolicited bulk e-mail.
554  Connecting IP: X.X.X.X

I double-checked, I'm not on DNS BLs, anyone have idea?
Tested DNS, everything is in place.
Tried to contact AOL twice, no response at all.
