Hi folks --

Anyone out there from AOL who's listening, or does anyone out there have a 
contact for someone appropriate to this query please...

One of our domains,, and all subdomains, are being bounced by AOL 
and AOL alone. There's nothing wrong with the zone, AOL's relays are just 
giving "Host not found" whereas everything else is fine. Seems to be only or *, and only on AOL, which leads me to believe there's 
something icky in AOL's resolvers doing this.

Dig reveals everything fine all the way down the line as far as DNS is 

Any assistance would be appreciated please!
