Serious issue for those with aol subscribers.
I'm currently whitelisted with aol and usually have no problem with mail delivery.
Currently running 2.1.3
This morning I noticed aol bouncing just about all of the emails from my mailman server with one or the other of the following
Oct 23 09:39:34 myserver postfix/smtp: 974515884F8: to=<user2 at aol.com>, relay=mailin-04.mx.aol.com[18.104.22.168], delay=1, status=bounced (host mailin-04.mx.aol.com[22.214.171.124] said: 500 SYNTAX ERROR, COMMAND UNRECOGNIZED)
Oct 23 09:39:34 myserver postfix/smtp: 1ED73588177: to=<user1 at aol.com>, relay=mailin-01.mx.aol.com[126.96.36.199], delay=0, status=bounced (host mailin-01.mx.aol.com[188.8.131.52] said: 554 TRANSACTION FAILED)
I spoke with the aol postmaster support line and they confirmed that the problem is due to the form of the mailman reply-to address to process bounces:
listname-bounces+username=aol.com at momsview.net
They don't like the "=" in the address.
Again this appears to be due to a recent change in aol's mail server software.
I'll update once I hear back from aol
