OK, set your default settings for the ukgateway.net account so they'll work
with AOL's SMTP server, but keep the "Reply To" address for this account set
to ukgateway. The way this should work is that the sending server will see
you're connected to AOL and you have an AOL email address, so email should
send. The AOL sending server will pass along the "Reply To" address to your
recipient who, if he decides to reply to you, will get your ukgateway.net
address placed in the "To:" field; his reply should go to ukgateway.net
email account. In a sense, you're "Spoofing" your own email account.
Spammers use this feature to hide their tracks; they send from one server,
but have replies sent to someone else somewhere else; most email servers
just look at the "Reply To" field and don't bother seeing if it matches the
IP address range the sender used to place the mail on the Internet.
