Then you have two choices:

1) Alert the DNSBLs that this IP is static, not dynamic, so they can
update their lists.  They will.

2) Expect to see a small but growing percentage of your mail bounce.

Note that "expect everybody else to stop bouncing dynamic IPs" isn't on
the list.  That is an unsupported option.  :-)

AOL thinks you're dynamic because whatever DNSBL they're using thinks
you're dynamic.  That is something you can fix.  The rest of the things
you're griping about aren't fixable by you, so it would be in your best
interest to go with the trivial solution.
