Email Problem

I have posted before on this with no luck, i'l try again in simpler wording. Whenever my system sends automated email like new user messages or post replies, it works with gmail but not with yahoo or comcast or aol. i am using sendmail

people replied and i am thrilled, but it isnt spam because i get an error back from sendmail that says it was rejected because of a syntax error, this is what leads me to believe it is the livejournal code, i can also send email manually to the addresses, whitch is what i've been doing..just forwarding them..for full error details..i posted earlier in the community about it adn that includes error codes...

..any help would be extremely appreciated..i've always had this problem and have not yet been able to solve it..thanks

here are the errors and other information...this was from a previous post

Hello all,
I have a problem with the email of the LiveJournal server, it sends to gmail and hotmail just fine but yahoo and comcast send it back with the error report as follows

The original message was received at Sat, 26 Feb 2005 00:31:47 -0700 from localhost []

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors ----- <>
(reason: 501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments)

----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to
>>> MAIL From:<nobody@stewartcreekranch> SIZE=1722
<<< 501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments
501 5.6.0 Data format error

with an attachment details.txt that contains

Reporting-MTA: dns; stewartcreekranch <--this is the main server and the livejournal server is using a virtual hositng account so the username is actually webmaster.somedomain if that has any effect, but when it send the original email the email is included as well and is from so think it is sendng it right
