Sending from Local Computer
Authored by: Tomnibus on Mar 17, '05 10:23:43AM

If the local computer with your (potentially) internal IP address like 192.168.x.x is sending the e-mail directly beware that AOL and some other hosts will refuse e-mail from those types of IP.'s. In fact, many hosts will refuse e-mail from sites that don't have a valid MX record on the DNS entry.

I found that out when I configured postfix on my machine to send my e-mail. Now I route it through another mail server.
