Hi I'm sure many has faced this problem before, but quick search did not yield to much help. Posting it here if anyone has a link to solving this problem or something like that:

I'm trying to write an email program that will send out emails whenever a database has new entry. I have a machine that has reverse DNS using still, when i try to send mail to any address of, it keeps complaining:
220 Sending unsolicited commercial or bulk e-mail to Microsoft's computer network is prohibited. Other restrictions are found at Violations will result in use of equipment located in California and other states. Mon, 24 Jul 2006 13:15:25 -0700

I have same kind of issues with AOL as well. How do I get by these issues? I'm not trying to spam, but the mail will be automated with useful information, and if it requires spending money for certificate or something, I'm OK with that too. But have no idea how to approach it. Thanks for your help.
