SMTP & DNS should be run through the servers provided by the ISP for the exact purpose. There is no valid reason for a dialup customer to go direct to root-servers.net and there is no reason why a dialup user should be sending mail directly to AOL, or any mail server for that matter (besides their host ISP)

they┬┤ll just use the www-proxy and other ALG services from the ISP ?

This is a self-solving problem.
