It could be because of an overload in aol's system. It's not uncommon for
them to not accept mail for awhile to let the servers chew through what
they have.

Not sure, but you can probably switch SLMail to allow odd behavior if
that's the problem. I haven't used it for awhile, but I recall an option in
the Configuration section about using ESMTP & others...
