I've heard about this and wondered myself why and how to get around
uploading to AOL's web server outside AOL.

Error: "550 Only "incoming" directories are guest writable"

According to some folks, and AOL tech support, you HAVE to use AOL software
to upload your files. Beyond the fact that this adds to my list of things
why I hate AOL, how to do you upload with standard FPT software?

host name: members.aol.com
username: anonymous
password: someonesemail at aol.com

I see from this sample login that anyone can get to someone's aol account
and download anything they wanted.

Man AOL is bass ackwards on a bunch of things!
