Hopefully I am providing enough correct information to have someone point out the obvious mistake on my part.
The problem: failure to send to aol addresses and possibly related, the intermittent lack of ability to deliver messages to regularly deliverable mail servers. This is without any notification to the Prolan SMTP server, which has cleared its queue, however not mail is at the expected site. Finally, there seems to always be redundant delivery of emails when sent through the Prolan server.
1) SMTP direct through a dynamic IP to AOL is denied to protect from spam. The solution: use the ISP's SMTP server. No help. Email still fails to send.
2) Prolan is running as both a service and an app in XP and attempts to send the queue both times.
I hate asking stupid questions, so I appologize to everyone who recognizes this for the stupidity that it is.
