problem of sending out emails through sendmail -- error code 421
 
Hi all,

I have the following problem in sending email out, but only for 1 or 2 receiptents, there're no problem for the others. Plesae help me to solve this problem as I don;t know whether it's the problem of our email server settings or the receiver's.

THanks
Keith

If you follow the link provided by aol (http://postmaster.info.aol.com/errors/421dnsnr.html), you'll see that this is caused because your mail server does not have a reverse dns record. There are also suggested solutions there.
