    Re post #8, if google publishes a SPF record for gmail.com then you may not be able to send on their behalf. aol.com may be checking the SPF record and discarding your email (just ignoring it, not even calling it spam). Try sending as root@localhost or root@backtrack.

    You could fire up ettercamp, tcpdump, wireshark and see if you're actually sending anything out. You could also telnet or netcat to port 25 and manually send the message, just as a test.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    In my experience hotmail and yahoo will disregard email addy's which do not have reverse DNS and google will flag them as spam.

    No go, times out.

    Code:
    Timeout while connecting to smtp.yahoo.com:25

    Wireshark tells me this:
    Code:
    50	38.078357	myipaddress	208.67.222.222	DNS	Standard query A mailin-03.mx.aol.com
    Where 208.67.222.222 is Open DNS.

    So I know send mail is working, maybe Open DNS is affecting deliver?
