[Mailman-Users] Formatting problems with AOL subscribers

I run an announcement-only mailing list with mailman, and some of my 
subscribers are having problems with the formatting of the text. 
Specifically AOL users.

What I'm sending is plain text with hard end-of-lines, and blank lines 
between paragraphs (rather like this email itself). The emails look as 
intended in my mail clients (Thunderbird and mutt), and in the web 


but AOL users say that they get a single block of text with no 
paragraphs. I'm not sure if that means that it just lacks the blank 
lines between paragraphs, or if it means that the entire post is 
converted to a single paragraph.

Has anyone else come across this? Do you know what is going on and is 
there anything I can do to fix it?
