This is covered quite throughly in the archives. Verping your mail will
help, and may solve the problem (look up verp in the FAQ).

The problem *may* be that you have too many aol recipients in one piece
of mail.  You can change this in your MTA or you can try to change this
in your Mailman

Good Luck - and have fun reading the archs!
