From the help file. J,

For technical reasons, AOL does not generally support the use of external email readers (Microsoft Outlook Express, Eudora, etc).

In order to read your AOL email, you have the following options:

1. Use the AOL software as normal;

2. Visit the Web site, which allows you to access your AOL email using any standard Web browser, without needing the AOL software. To avail of this facility, go to click here and sign in with your usual AOL Screen Name and password.

3. Use the Netscape 7.0 Web browser, which contains an AOL-compatible email reader, and also offers some useful features for advanced users. Netscape 7.0 is available for download at click here
