At last I have an official response from aol to me beefs about hotlinks in my
posts dying in transit to the lists !
Shown below, a cure will be a while yet !
Still nothing about difficulties re accessing the lookup exchange site, I keep
on at them though !

>In response to your question about hotlinks in email, AOL does have very
limited HTML "ability" in email. A normal hyperlink should really work, but
it can't be guaranteed to. Unfortunately, this means you will not be able to
rely on AOL email properly translating formatted email from other systems
until AOL4.0i is released (which will have many new features). Also, as
reported in the likes of CNET and ZDNet not too long ago, AOL will be
incorporating MS Outlook Express email technology sometime soon (no details on
that at all yet).
Hopefully AOL4.0i will be released for beta testing in the coming months - it
has many many improvements across the board :o)
