[long time lurker, first time poster -- I don't run a real network :-)] I'm getting something a little different (addresses changed to protect the innocent): ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors ----- <firstname.lastname@example.org> <email@example.com> ----- Transcript of session follows ----- ... while talking to air-yh04.mail.aol.com.: >>> RCPT To:<firstname.lastname@example.org> <<< 550 MISSING OR INCORRECT DOMAIN IN RCPT COMMAND 550 <email@example.com>... User unknown >>> RCPT To:<firstname.lastname@example.org> <<< 550 MISSING OR INCORRECT DOMAIN IN RCPT COMMAND 550 <email@example.com>... User unknown Both of these addresses are on an internal use list of about 30 addresses that last successfully delivered mail to these guys a couple of hours ago. When I first read it, I laughed out loud because I *do* tend to think of AOL as an incorrect domain. But this, coupled with Christian's report, looks more like they've broken something than done something deliberate. Telneting to port 25 of air-yh04.mail.aol.com times out at the moment... -- Joseph F. Noonan Systems Manager Rigaku/MSC firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.RigakuMSC.com/
