Yes, if you launch IE when you're connected to AOL BB it will work or you
can do away with the AOL software all together. To do this make a new dial
up connection (even though you are using broadband) and input the phone
number as 0,38 your username should be and your
password your AOL password if this is over 8 characters long just put the
first 8 in as your password. That's it you should be able to connect through
that connection without the AOL software and you can now just launch the
browser of your choice.

Forgot to say make sure you select your broadband modem as the method to
connect.

Hey, can you explain that bit to me? How is the 'phone number' sent
down the modem interface and what effect does it have?

you just tell your broadband modem to dial 0,38. It doesn't actually dial
anything it just logs you on to AOL broadband without the need for using
their software. Providing you have inputted your username and password as
described earlier

sounds more like a way to remind yourself of the correct VPI, VCI settings
for the router...

You might have your own Domain name for mailing purposes which you
could read OK into Outlook but how are you going to send any email
out? I am not aware of any SMTP from AOL

Use smtp.aol.com port 587 with SMTP Authentication enabled (aol
screenname etc).

To retrive email from AOL accounts use the IMAP server imap.aol.com.

See http://postmaster.info.aol.com/imap/ for more info.
