Return to Sender.....

Wondering if anyone could provide me with some assistance please?

I've been away from blogging frightfully long, I know; but it hasn't taken long for Blogger to get on my "cranky" side.  I have visited several of your blogs and successfully left comments.  However, in the majority of cases, I receive an email notification stating that the message (which goes to your email inbox notifying you that I have left a comment) failed to be delivered.  Specifically, the error message I receive is as follows:

"Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

[Email address of the person whose blog I commented on]

Technical details of permanent failure:  Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain gmail.com by gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com [].

The error that the other server returned was:
550-5.7.1  Unauthenticated email from aol.com due to domain's DMARC policy.  Please contact administrator of aol.com domain if this was a legitimate email.  Please visit  https://support.google.com/mail/answer/2451690 to learn about DMARC initiative.  m83si49380524ywd87 - gsmtp."

This is worrisome to me because I suspect that most of you rely on the email notifications to know if someone has commented, rather than going back to your actual blog post and looking to see if there has been a new comment.  This is particularly troublesome for me as I often am behind in my blog reading and may comment several days after a post has been made.  The long and short of it is that I feel that I am leaving comments that no one knows are being made.

I have "visited" the site referenced in the error message I receive, and have also researched this particular error and attempted the few "fixes" that were suggested.  Nothing, however, has helped me resolve the issue.  I know I've been gone a long while....did I miss something somewhere?  HELP!!!

Thanks kindly.....
