AOL made some changes in the second half of 2008 to the way its customers’ outgoing email is sent when using AOL’s webmail option.

Thanks Dave… in a way, that’s what we do now. These two lumbering old giants just don’t seem to be able to respond effectively (or at all) to identified problems with their software. Let me think more about your suggestion. Thanks again.
