You've got to wonder if your address has been blocked by those users and/or your IP address has been blocked by those server operrators and/or, you've typed the addresses wrong.

Here's a wild guess to add to the mix. When you say everytime,how many people with an aol address have you tried? With the new viruses going around, some of your contacts may have their e-mail boxes full and you aren't have a problem after all? Well, it's a thought.

Well, My contacts through AOL are my friends and family...so i know they dont have me blocked...(if they do..then i'm really sad!..LOL) but their mailbox's cant be full because AOL doesnt have a limit does it? YOu can send AOL big attachments and people get them, that is why i choose to send pics and stuff to people's Home ISP's rather than Hotmail or Yahoo because they have a limit. People say they are not getting mail from me. So i am not sure why I cannot email them.

All there's left for you to do then is call AOL Technical Support, as painful and time-consuming that may be, and see what's up from their end. If the addresses are being entered correctly, automatically or not, that's all you have left.

Incidentally, AOL scans e-mail for virus trojan or variant now before it gets to you, but firewall service to stop hackers from messing your system in any way is still up to you. A great firewall called Sygate is available for free from http://download.com.com/3000-2092-10184369.html?tag=lst-0-1
