Ummmm - this issue of AOL blocking email from MSU mail server(s) just applies to mail sent from openrelay.msu.edu, right? Which, IIRC, was set up a couple of years ago when pilot.msu.edu was beginning to get blocked because it was relaying. So I thought the solution was that relaying was disabled on pilot.msu.edu, and openrelay.msu.edu was created to allow relaying for those who needed it.
If the foregoing is correct, then it should be the case (I think?) that mailing directly from the pilot.msu.edu server, via the TWIG web interface or the telnet interface, should still work ok. A little experimenting on my part seems to show that mailing from these two 'native' server interfaces does result in at least a couple of AOL users I know to successfully receive email sent this way.
Comments? Reactions? Clarifications?
