AOL: We're Not Spying on AIM Users

WirelessFreak Oh bullshit... (310 comments)

Howdy all. Let the flames begin! I'd flame myself too!

I made the horrendous mistake of installing AOL over a weekend for their trial so I could quickly download Netscape's installer which I'm ultimately using now. I've canceled my AOL account, cleaned out the registry, set my only T-Bird SMTP server to my site, had it working for a couple of days, etc. Now somehow, AOL (aka "Big Brother) manipulated itself as my sole SMTP server, thus preventing me from sending messages (I can receive all day long).

Now, someone tell ME that AOL isn't taking over PCs. ;-)
