AOL is very picky about who they accept email from. Are you sending email directly or using a smart host?

When you ran the wizard you stated you wanted to deliver email by DNS and not a smart host?
Do you have the DNS setup correctly, with a valid reverse DNS record etc? Do you have a static IP address? If not to either of those then you will be unable to send email directly using DN Sand you will have to use your ISPs SMTP Server as a smart host.
