Aol's handling of email is fine as it is. (For those like me who've always used it.) OE to me is baffling and full of difficulties.

Why not use Aol's freephone number, because if it can be done they will talk you through it.

Information click here If you have any trouble, in the Incoming mail server field, enter imap.uk.aol.com. In the Outgoing mail server field, enter: smtp.uk.aol.com. (ie. just add uk).

In AOL keyword, type "imap" it will explain eveything

I absolutely agree with Diemmess.

However I do also use OE (for a a particular reason). If you do as feb suggests you will be up and running with OE in less that three minutes.
