I, too, have been getting bounced reports from aol. Here's a typical one:
Recipient address: <xxx>@aol.com
Reason: SMTP transmission failure has occurred
Diagnostic code: smtp;554-: (HVU:B1)
http://postmaster.info.aol.com/errors/554hvub1.html TRANSACTION FAILED
Remote system: dns;mailin-01.mx.aol.com
(TCP|184.108.40.206|54606|220.127.116.11|25) (rly-yg03.mx.aol.com ESMTP
mail_relay_in-yg3.6; Tue, 06 Sep 2005 19:25:39 -0400)
All spam & UCE are reported.
