For all of you who have been searching for hours or days trying to figure out why the Aweber integration is not working through S2Member I”ve found a solution that worked for me. Might save you a lot of trouble.
Call your hosting providor (mine is HostGator) and request that they add a “Reverse DNS record, PTR, or pointer record” to your hosting account.
If you are seeing that when you run the “bcc” test that they suggest here and all is looking good meaning the “add” email is being generated by the S2Member system but Aweber is not adding your contacts to your list this is probably your problem. Basically without this “Reverse DNS record, PTR, or pointer record” your “add” emails will be blocked as spam by Aweber and names will not be added to your list.
I searched for days for this and found one small mention of this most matter of fact-ly, and woo-hoo it turned out to be the solution.
Dear, S2Member support: You might want to add this to your knowledge base as I see that a lot of people are facing this same issue with Aweber integration from the 40+ forum postings I’ve seen while doing my research.
