Being totally unfamilar with AOL software, I would appreciate seeing
something that we can include in our welcome message or send to them that
would help resolve the problem - at least as much as can be resolved.

I realize some will not read it and other's will not even care, but I think
that many will and that would be a blessing to our list. I would never not
let AOL people on our list - many of our active contributors have AOL - but
it sure gets difficult having to deal with all the constant problems and
messages that I can do nothing about!

So if someone who really knows AOL and the different versions would write
up something - I'm sure many of us would be happy to pass the info on.
