I read a post on Slashdot.org which claimed that mail sent directly from an
AOL user, (not through an AOL mail server) would have ipt.aol.com in the
header instead of mx.aol.com, can anyone confirm this?

Thanks

(forwarding this to the list for Chuck Lewis, as his original
 mail got routed to the wrong system... my fault, not his)


Unreal.

 

Why is Spam going nuts ? If you have an AOL account, this might be why !
