I hate AOL

This not a Plusnet problem it is an AOL problem.

I have set up a web site and have redirected email's to a person using an AOL broadband connection. The trouble is AOL do not allow a reply address that does not end in aol.com (e.g. me@mywebsite.com). If you try they disconnect you. Do you have any suggestions? Apparently they don't even let you collect from other pop3 mailboxes either.

Sorry I didn't mention they need to use Outlook Express as a minimum to handle their email. A webmail client won't link up to Outlook express will it?

Some will.

My Yahoo account allows this.
No cost involved, but you have to sign up to receive spam from them.

HOWEVER

If you tick the box that says something on the lines of "Only spam me with crap relating to the interests I've ticked" and then don't tick *anything* in the next section, their system is too dumb to work out that you've fooled it, so it accepts what you've done instead of throwing up an error message, and you don't get any spam.
