They never fixed it. There is no way to send plain text in AOL 6.0. Your
person who is having trouble should dump 6.0 and use 5.0. AOL 5.0 is good, a
big improvement over earlier AOL. There are no big advantages to 6.0, nothing
that comes close to making it worthwhile to lose ability to send ASCII text.
AOL keeps putting messages on the Welcome screen, "Why haven't you upgraded
to 6.0?" I didn't because IMHO it is a *downgrade*!
