 Well I don't know what happens on Windows, but on Macintosh, AOL assigns your computer an IP number from the AOL pool of IP numbers when you sign on, so your mail isn't actually isn't seen as coming from the cable provider's IP number, but from an AOL IP number.

AOL also now allows the use of third party mail clients with their network, so users can use Mail, or Eudora, or Entourage or whatever else to deal with AOL mail. In these cases you make a secure connection to AOL.
