Are you using an email program on your computer, or are you going to AOL web page to send and receive emails?
Are you familiar with Outlook express, or outlook, or Microsoft Mail programs that come with your computer under windows operating systems?
You can pop your email down to outlook 2007. from many web based providers,
as many address you have (hotmail,aol,yahoo) it doesn't matter.
Set up an account in outlook 2007 for each email account you have, IE if you have several AOL email accounts, you will set up an account in outlook 2007 for each one.

I will keep this dialogue open untill you are r satisfied. If you need more help i will walk you through the set up on outlook 2007.
You are seeing the limitations of the AOL master account. I would suggest that you migrate away from AOL master account altogether, and use outlook 2007. If this is not a solution that you are interested in, i can bump you up to the next level and see if another expert can help. You decide.
I am at your service.
