Hi Try this if you have not resolved the problem On the Mail tab, click the AOL account that you added, and then click Properties.
3. Click the Servers tab, and then click to select the My server requires authentication check box.
4. Click Apply, and then click the Advanced tab.
5. In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) box, type 587.

9. Click Close. If you receive the following message, click Yes:
