      Is there an issue, and if so what is it?  I have setting that match 
those which were reported to be a problem and mail goes to AOL just 
fine.  I have several hundred AOL users receiving mail on a dozen lists, 
and yet my AOL bounces for the last 48 hours are 9 - and I assume some of 
those were one account bouncing two days running.

      I also asked on one list if AOL members would let me know if they 
were getting mail and how - and I got plenty of responses from both single 
e-mail and digest users.  I'm not saying there is no problem but it does no 
seem to be wide spread, and clearly it can be dealt with from this side of 
AOL's iron curtain.

      I have heard a rumour that AOL's new spam filters are rejecting mail 
that has URLs as dotted quad addresses.  If your server is identifying URLs 
this way it would be something to look into.
