Did you check your spam settings?

Did you check if that domain has not been blacklisted by AOL? (use nslookup to find the MX records - in interactive nslookup (just type "nslookup" in commandline of Windows/Linux) the command is "set type=MX" and then type the domain name, you get the list of IPs of the domain MaileXchangers)

If Im not worng, AOL requires greylisting - thus rejecting the mail in the first place and waiting for a retransmit by the oppposite site. If the opposite site does not support this (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greylisting) - for example by wrong retransmit settings, you may not get the e-mail.

Also AOL may require SMTP securing that the opposite site does not support or has wrongly configured.
