| Channeling AOL:
|
| "Use www.aol.com webmail."

OK then, Roger: say your employer has a firewall and you can't surf from work.

Or say you don't have an AOL account yourself and you can't use their webmail,
but you want to ask someone on AOL a question on behalf of a third party who
is also on AOL, so you direct Reply-To: to the person who needs the response.

Channeling AOL, if they answer at all: "Too bad."

If indeed they have such a policy (at this point all we know is that it's one
possible explanation), it is a foolish one, partial workarounds
notwithstanding.
