	Does he use the web interface sometimes and sometimes the AOL 
client?  That might explain the difference.

	Another potential source of problems would be if he sometimes 
includes attachments, or sometimes only one attachment versus 
multiple attachments at other times.  The problem is that the AOL 
client doesn't understand the concept of more than one attachment, so 
it has to wrap up all of the attachments and put that into a single 
ZIP archive, and then attach that one archive to the message which is 
sent out.
