This appears to have no relationship to the problem that I (and others)
experienced.  The information I provided clearly shows that mail was
received by AOL's mail server(s), and clearly shows that it was returned,
thus indicating a functional, if not optimal/robust network path.

It's pretty obvious that AOL broke their mail servers; I'm waiting to
see if they acknowledge their error and provide an explanation for it.
