AOL email addresses in OE/Hotmail

I've just noticed (after about 10 years Shockedops: ) that aol email addresses never seem to appear in my hotmail inbox (either web or OE) with the nickname/quickname that I have configured in the address books ... they always appear as username@aol.com.
for sent messages however, they appear as they "should".
feature? bug? something I haven't configured? evil conspiracy?

Except I'm using a legacy http connection to a free hotmail account, not POP3 or IMAP which I think are only available to paying hotmail customers ... and as I say, aol addresses appear this way in the web interface too, not just OE.
it's a small irritation but hey ...

aol can use imap or pop3. Imap is easy to configure though. I know that aol are using anti-spamming techniques that are not making some peoply happy though.
