I can't send someone that I want to send an e-mail to. It always sends it back to me. Maybe somebody knows what this means:

It was cut off like that when I got it. I tried to send this person something three times and it said the same thing. Also, I don't have AOL. I have Road Runner Cable and if you don't know it is a division of AOL and some of RR's servers are AOL servers from what I have found out.
EDIT: I do have AIM though.

well i knew that AOL owns RR, but never thought they'd mix servers i'd suggest contacting RR and telling them whats up. sounds like the AOL servers are denying relay from your machine for a certain reason.

All below from this link...................
550 - AOL no longer accepts connections from dynamically assigned IP addresses to our relay servers. Please contact your ISP to have your mail redirected through your ISP's SMTP servers.
This indicates that you are trying to connect directly to AOL’s relay servers to send mail from an IP address which is listed in AOL's dial-up-list. AOL will not accept port 25 connections from dynamically assigned IP addresses; we require that all email connections come from static IP addresses (a “fixed” line – like an SMTP server). If you get this message, you should talk to your ISP to have your email re-routed through your ISP’s SMTP servers. If your IP address has been mistakenly added to the dial-up-list, you will need to have your ISP or Upstream provider contact AOL to remove the IP addresses out of the dial-up-list.
Check out our dial-up-list search page!
Here's a new bounce message you may receive:
550 - The information presently available to AOL indicates that your server is open to the free relaying of e-mail, and is being used to retransmit unsolicited bulk e-mail to AOL. Based on AOL's Unsolicited Bulk E-mail policy at http://www.aol.com/info/bulkemail.html, AOL cannot accept further e-mail transactions from your server until that server is closed to free relaying. For additional information, please visit http://postmaster.info.aol.com.

Ok....Something is up then. What exactly does that page mean that you linked to? I know it says that some were denied but, what is it? It also looks like I can't get to anyone with AIM either unless this person is ignoring me. I don't think that the person is ignoring me though.

Oh, nevermind now. In the previous post I was talking about the link posted by golfcart. Hmm....That is new. I was just able to send e-mail to this person about 5 hours ago. I am contacting RR via the chat and will let you know what they say. It will probably be something stupid.

The page I linked to just checks various databases of known spam sources. Some ISPs use those databases to block all email coming from the IP adresses listed. I could be wrong about AOL blocking you. It's just my guess
March 5th, 2003, 10:10 PM #11
As I said the RR person would say something stupid. They said I need to contact AOL and we cannot assist you with this matter.

Try sending through one of RR's other servers:

It won't validate me. It connects but, does nothing else. Does anyone know the contact mail addy for AOL? I can't find it.

I just thought I would let you all know that I got my e-mail working the next day. I didn't do anything else to it unless the AOL Postmaster did something when I sent hime (or her) an e-mail regarding it. I think I may have found what happened though. This may have affected it or may have not. It is a possibilty though. I found this article about something M$ did.
