Hmm.  That's weird.  That means the cron job is running, but it's not 
notifying the correct people.

Well, AOL can cause certain problems.  Same is true for all large providers 
that may just throw away e-mail that they think is spam, and you never even 
know what they've done.

You should also check your spam folder, to see if AOL accepted it but then 
did not put it in your regular mailbox.

The third possibility is that the messages are still sitting on your server 
and have not yet been delivered, but have also not yet been bounced. 
However, you'd need to know how to interact with your server at the Unix 
command-line level in order to take a closer look at this issue.  Your site 
admin should be able to help you with this process, unless that's you.
