Why am I not able to send email to AOL from my website?

Why am I not able to send email from my ASP, PHP, CGI or .NET script to AOL email addresses?

This is because AOL requires each sending IP address to have a reverse DNS record. When sending an email from your script and using "localhost" as your mailserver host name, email will be sent from the web server's default SMTP server which doesn't have a rDNS record. You are requested instead to send email through our regular email server by specifying as your mailserver hostname. You will need to perform SMTP authentication to send email via the regular mailserver and hence you must enter the username and password for the email address from which the emails would be sent.
