Forward email to AOL accounts


#1

While researching how to set up email for a domain, one of the options is to forward email to another email account. There was a prohibition back in 2006 by AOL that would not allow emails to be forwarded by DH hosted email. Has this been resolved or is there still a block from AOL? Are there any other companies that block email forwarding from DH?

Thanks for your reply.

They used to prohibit Comcast forwards, but this appears to have been lifted. AOL forwards are still prohibited.

And the issue isn’t with those companies blocking forwards, but more how they handle spam complaints by their users. AOL is pretty heavy handed and blacklists all post offices along the way, which would include DreamHost in the case of a forwarder.
