I have the same issue

And am using the same solution. But it's not just AOL that does this, roaringpenguin is another.. Here's my mailertable:

aol.com                 smtp:smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com
.rr.com                 smtp:smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com
.roaringpenguin.com     smtp:smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com
cs.com                  smtp:smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com
netscape.net            smtp:smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com
bmc.com                 smtp:smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com
wmconnect.com           smtp:smtp-server.tampabay.rr.com
