Sending Emails

I have an 18,000 strong email database, but since F9 have started tarpitting emails it has become a nightmare to send to.

I have MS Exchange and tried to deliver direct using SMTP
but my messages got refused to aol, tiscali, btopenworld
and a few others because (I think) I was not on their white list.

Is there a one stop sign up shop for white lists? although I did run my IP number through http://www.openrbl.org/ and couldn't find any reason why I should be having a problem.

Any suggestions or even offers to help - one option is to stop messing around out of my depth and get someone else to do it - although I tried to get my hardware supplier to set it up and just wasted 5 days... now I can do that!

I know AOL block messages from the IP Ranges of broadband customers, and will only accept mail sent through ISPs designated Mail Servers (relay.force9.net in this case)

You can configure exchange to use relay.force9.net or autoturn.force9.net as a smart host so that e-mail sent through your exchange server is forwarded to F9 to be sent from their whitelisted IP address(es). This way it won't be rejected by AOL etc but you can still use your exchange server.
