I'm not using AOL's email software.  This is originating from Mozilla 
Thunderbird Ver 1.502 (current release) connecting to AOL's IMAP server 
directly via a broadband connection.   AOL's proprietary client software 
isn't even running.   I'm just using the email address.     

[ For about two years now, it's been possible to AOL's proprietary 
client and  use "normal" external IMAP/POP3 email clients such as 
Outlook, Eudora, Thunderbird, etc to connect to AOL's email services. ] 

A previous post suggests that this may actually  be a bug in Thunderbird.
