This is nothing new.  Are you trying to relay directly rather than using
a smarthost?  AOL is very aggressive about not accepting mail from what
they deem to be end-user/dialup/dynamic pools.  Go to openrbl.org and
enter the IP address of the machine trying to deliver the mail and see
if you're on any of those lists.
