Can't send mail to AOL!


  • I have been trying to get mail flowing to AOL for months now.... I finally managed to figure out how to get an SMTP log from my send connector. The log contained the following:

    attempting to connect
    <, ESMTP Internet Inbound,
    <,220-AOL and its affiliated companies do not,
    <,220-authorize the use of its proprietary computers and computer,
    <,"220-networks to accept, transmit, or distribute unsolicited bulk",
    <,220-e-mail sent from the internet.,
    <,220-Effective immediately:,
    <,220-AOL may no longer accept connections from IP addresses,
    <,220 which no do not have reverse-DNS (PTR records) assigned.,
    >,EHLO mail.<REMOVED>.net,
    <,250 DSN,
    <,220 2.0.0 Ready to start TLS,
    *,,Received certificate
    *,1F75F1B43AEDCCA6B206A8D8CA35D87FC37F7A95,Certificate thumbprint
    >,EHLO mail.<REMOVED>.net,
    <,554 The security certificate was issued by a company you have not chosen to trust.,
    >,HELO mail.<REMOVED>.net,

    It seems to not like the certificate on the AOL server.... How in the world do I fix this?

    Thank You
