# The following line really should be built up from the 'O Forwardpath='
# line in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf, but I'm too lazy to figure out how to
# do expansions of Sendmail macros like $w and $w right now....
for i in /*/.forward do;
	grep -vi aol.com < $i > $i.bak && mv $i.bak $i

If your site is big enough that you have a separate mail server, and users
don't have actual logins on the server, but just POP/IMAP their mail off and
use a web interface to set forwarding/etc, just fix the web interface to
not allow them to set a forward to AOL.....
