Agreed. The other thing is that I'm not surprised that mail to an
AOL-internal help address bounced, since those people are supposed to
be helping AOL people. It'd be like e-mailing me at Apple to get tech
support (it won't work); that the external stuff is broken or
suboptimal doesn't magically mean the internal addresses should start
taking external mail.

Yeah. As someone who's been supportive of AOL here over the years, I
have to admit I'm not thrilled here, and I tihnk they blew it. that
