Question/Issue I use AOL for my ISP, and I tried specifying their mail server in the -server parameter to send mail, but it failed. Why? 
Answer/Solution You will need to use an SMTP server which you have control over (or with which you are permitted to send mail and you have access to its administrators) either through a web host, another ISP, or a free email account. Experience indicates that AOL does not allow sending out email with their mail servers, so you will have to find a different provider.

There are a number of free email services out there that will allow you to use their SMTP servers to send out email. Try searching for e.g. "Free SMTP Access" on the internet.
