How can I use proxy servers with aol? How secure and private is my surfing if I am unable to use proxies with aol server?

When I had AOLame I surfed with an Internet Explorer browser--NEVER theirs--used a standalone newsreader and news service--NEVER theirs--and did all my sensitive surfing via proxies set up in IE and TCP/IP. Had them as an ISP for *0 months and finally couldn't stand them anymore. Found a superior ISP for one-third the price and couldn't be happier.

when I had AOL, I did as you, Up N. Atum, but also used a web-based email address----NEVER theirs :-)
