Email Forwarding


#1

Just wondering why DH does not allow forwarding to aol.com?

Because AOL is overly aggressive when combatting spam and blacklist anybody that even has a hint of spam. If spam goes through a forwarding address at DreamHost, it smells like spam, so AOL blacklists the DreamHost sever it came through.

Thanks Scott.

Just wondering if there are any other similiar limitations on email forwarding / usage that I should be aware of?

Same goes for Comcast.
