This is a separate issue that really doesn't have anything to do with
Mailman, per-se.

You need to check out: http://postmaster.aol.com/

Follow their instructions for "Is your mail to AOL being blocked?" and
"Would you like to apply for the AOL Whitelist?"

Once I did that, I no longer had anyone complaining about mail from
lists on my server being blocked.
