flipping this on it's head, my company recently received an email from an
AOL customer requesting some information..........when we tried to reply, we
found the message bounced with an error message along the lines of "AOL's
anti-spam software has rejected your message"!!!

It seems, here in the UK at least, if you send an email from a .co.uk domain
it won't reach an AOL recipient.

V-e-rrrrrrrr-y intelligent filtering.

I use a program called Mailwasher Pro which filters and bounces unwanted
email.
It currently only works with POP3 and Hotmail, but AOL support is being
worked on and will be available shortly.
I use it as a multiple address checker, sort out the messages to bounce or
delete then open Outlook Express and go to the ID's with new messages.

Check out the site www.firetrust.com for more info.

The one in the AOL8 software seems as good as any.

Plus the AOL Communicator email client on beta test is not bad either.

have a look back in demon.service, AOL have blacklisted IP ranges
believed to be dialup to reduce incoming spam. Demon have an
arrangement in place where legit smtp servers in their IP ranges can
be whitelisted.

Or use Mozilla, which has a splendid Bayesian filter built-in. And it
gets better the longer you use it, because when you designate mail as
junk, the filtering parameters get adjusted.

On my Exchange server I have had to put in two rules for sending mail, AOL
and Hotmail emails need to go via relay.plus.net any other email can be sent
via their MX records
