    Kmail probs sending to aol addresses

    I can send/receieve msgs in kmail and evolution fine, but if i try to send msgs to aol screen names they do not make it, i read a blurb about it having to do with renaming localhost, i did that but its still not working , any clues?

    From linux i didnt think you could send direct to screen names?

    I always thought, as you are not using AOL software you would need to use the full email address, eg, or

    If you try to send to just the screen name, it will most likely look for a users mail box or alias on the localhost.

    I may be wrong, i must say i have never tried sending mail to aol screen names.

    If you are gettting a message bounce back, post that up here with the full mail headers, that should help with diagnosis.

    In addition to what j said, are you using the AOL java web client, Trillian or the software from thier CD for your AOL messages? And is it AOL IM or regular AOL e-mail that giving you problems?
