Janet, there's no solution, as far as I know. I've subscribed to AOL recently (still getting it free) so I could check on things. Tried checking out this very issue recently. AOL members can send workable links back and forth to each other. They can send them to non-AOL folks, but when I tried sending one to myself it DIDN'T work (from my regular mailer to AOL). I'm using AOL4 so not sure if 5 might be different or 6. But, I've heard so many bad things about 5 I would never encourage anyone to upgrade to it, and 6 is no new the "word isn't out on it yet". Best wishes - I too consider it all very frustrating and wish I had a solution. Donna " Janet F." wrote: > I have a client in California using AOL.
