I think what is happening is that people are uploading a mail packet to
you. This is to save time and money online. By downloading it all at one
time, you simply read it at your conveinence, and you don't have to pay
for the online time reading it. You can use the printout to get the
addresses so you know where to send a reply. You will have to write a
message to everyone who you are replying to as if it is a new message. I
have no idea how to tell you to upload a packet (I am still learning
myself and haven't used AOL in ages).
I hope this helps. It is offered to people to save them money, not make
their life a pain!
