    mail and AOL don't like each other

    I've searched and tried most of the recommendations, but i still can't get my site to send mail to AOL. I only need to send text mail. These are the headers that i'm setting in my script. It was taken from php.net mail() page.

    Code PHP:
      $headers .= 'From: name<'.$from.'>'.$eol;
    $headers .= 'Reply-To: name<'.$from.'>'.$eol;
    $headers .= 'Return-Path: name<'.$from.'>'.$eol;
    $headers .= 'Message-ID: <'.$now.'@'.$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].'>'.$eol;
    $headers .= 'X-Mailer: PHP v'.phpversion().$eol;

    can anyone shed some light? maybe i'm missing something?

    I assume you got POP3 and SMTP access with your hosting. Use your favorite mail client to send mail from your domain, through your host's SMTP server, to an AOL address. You may get a bounce with a useful message.
