MSN email to AOL addresses

Also posted in the communications forum, I also placed here because I am running XP.

For months now I have been having trouble sending to aol addresses and it was continuallu getting worse. I mentioned it to a friend and I got this email from him.( see below) I uninstalled accelerator and tried it . it worked perfectly. This was 3 days ago. It's been working perfectly. So just wanted to let anyone else having the problem, give it a try.
I would like to inform you that if you are using Dial-Up accelerator with the MSN Software, then I would suggest you to disable the Dial-Up accelerator and then try to send email to the email addresses. As AOL uses a technique of blocking the email addresses on the basis of the IP address the email has come from instead of the domain name. As Dial-up accelerator generates an IP address that may fall in the range of the blocked IP addresses list then the emails from MSN are blocked by AOL.
