At 11:27 AM +0100 4/21/05, Heath  imposed structure on a stream of electrons, yielding:
 Didn't see anything obvious from the message bounce. What do your logs say? You may want to turn the logging level low to see as much as possible.

 I had to stop running mail service for a non-profit because AOL was rejecting my email. I was doing redirects for all the officers, one of whom was on AOL & reporting spam she received at her officer address. As a result, AOL blacklisted me, rather than contacting me for resolution. When I called, they said I had to work with my ISP -- they wouldn't deal with me directly. My ISP, on the other hand, said that I was perfectly fine and they don't get involved in third-party issues. *sigh* I hate AOL.

cheers Tim, heres the relevant log entries set at ALL Info, level:


That can't be right, because normally there would be level 5 entries. It looks like your SYSTEM module is logging at level 4, and SMTP at level 3.

for the record, user@eeeff.net and user@aol.com are replaced names to protect the innocent ;-)


You need to make sure that all modules are set to log all info. You should be seeing something like this:
