So I guess my emails will enver reach aol then?

Not to worry. mx.aol.com has more spam outfits than all the DSL setups
combined :). I can just block mx.aol.com now :).

How about this for your MTA deny lines:

mx.aol.com REJECT 550 We are a more professional outfit than you. Your 
mail is on the floor
