I found this about AOL's mail policy: http://postmaster.aol.com/trouble/mailer.html
It says:
Quote:
550 Requested action not taken: DNS FAILURE
These errors indicate that there are DNS resolution problems somewhere between your domain and AOL. This usually means that AOL is unable to resolve your domain name in DNS before accepting that mail for delivery. Contact your e-mail administrator for assistance. The network administrator for the site may have to modify their resource records in DNS.
So there seems to be something wrong with the DNS records of the sender domain. What's the sender domain you use?

well looking at the mail logs files i posted i see a lot of xxxx@server1.example.com is that the case? the fact that the server is setup with "server1.example.com" via the ISPconfig install and aol is rejecting it that way. should that be corrected if so how now that the server is already configured.

You should have taken your own and existing hostname.

You should check /stc/hosts and /etc/postfix/main.cf for server1.example.com.
Also, what's the output of
Code:
hostname
and
Code:
hostname -f
?

[/CODE]?
All i found is the /etc/postfix/main.cf and that has the following two entries in there of for SERVER1.EXAMPLE.COM:

myhostname = server1.$mydomain
mydomain = example.com

can these be changed manually in the main.cf file here.

as for /stc/hosts i don't have a STC folder off my root. this is running on a suse9.3 build if that helps.

Falko:
here is my /etc/host file:

#
# hosts This file describes a number of hostname-to-address
# mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem. It is mostly
# used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
# On small systems, this file can be used instead of a
# "named" name server.
# Syntax:
#
# IP-Address Full-Qualified-Hostname Short-Hostname #

127.0.0.1 localhost

# special IPv6 addresses
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

fe00::0 ipv6-localnet

ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts
192.168.1.205 server1.example.com server1



So the question is on this file and the mail files what would i modify if my domain is say "doamin.com" being these files ask for a HOSTNAME and DOMAIN NAME how would i enter it? Sorry to be lame but just not sure on the format.

You put
Code:
<IP_Address> HOSTNAME.DOMAINNAME HOSTNAME
into /etc/hosts. I'd do it before the IPv6 section in the file, so put the line
Code:
192.168.1.205 server1.example.com server1
right after the 127.0.0.1 line. And I'd also modify the 127.0.0.1 line a little bit:
Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
