Still Trapped in Spooftown

I'm in the middle of exams and final papers. I really don't have time to deal with this.




This epic spoof has gone on for three days.
I spent an hour on the phone this morning with AOL tech support. They were polite, responsive and courteous but the spooffage n' spam still harasses my contatcs in my name.
This evening I called again and found out that that this is a major isue at AOL now. They are working on a patch and expect it to be implemented in 24 hours.

I have a few questions of the various geniuses and experts i'm blessed to have in my audience.
Is there anything AOL can realistically do?
I've changed my password and challange questions 3 times. But since the E-mails are not actually coming from my account this is of no use in the current situation.

Is there anything I can do on my end in this situation?
Any best practies beyond theusual E-mail security basics to avoid this?
Does anyone have any suggestions for good, secure E-mail services?

In other news, my keyboard died. I dug out the awkward rubbermaid bath keyboard it replaced.
