My understanding is that AOL is doing major hardware upgrades 
(starting yesterday) that would affect mail through today.  My 
question is whether they will fix the fundamental problems with how 
they do mail as the 130 aol members on my list of 850 constitute 
about 90% of my mailserver woes.  And I haven't even mentioned the 
actual user problems.
