Thanks. Setting up an AOL mail account was actually fairly painless.
Here's what I got when I sent a test mail to it:

X-AOL-SCOLL-AUTHENTICATION: mail_rly_antispam_dkim-m003.1 ; domain : DKIM : pass

Are you intent on just disabling signing of mail to addresses?
If not I may be able to help. I found this page that explains how AOL
uses DKIM:
Specifically, the "AOL Signature Validation" section may be helpful.
