Are you a mail server admin having a problem sending email to AOL?

What error message are you receiving? Is it an AOL IP reputation block?

Here is a list of things to check while troubleshooting the problem :

  • Does your mail server have a dedicated IP address?
  • Does your mail server have matching forward and reverse DNS?
  • Are you sending more email to AOL than normal?
  • Did you recently relay send a newsletter / bulk email to AOL?
  • Was your server abused and used to send spam by one of your users?
  • Have you send email to a large number of invalid AOL email addresses?
  • Do you use different IP addresses for sending high and low quality email?
  • Do you sign your email with Domain Keys?

If you only relay high quality email you can try applying for the AOL Whitelist
