Problems with AOL & Outlook Express

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. I hope someone can help me with a problem & have with the above.

I have set up OE to use with my AOL Webmail.

I am receiving e-mails into OE ok but I cannot send any e-mails.

I have also set up OE to use with my NTL Webmail and this is working OK.

Can anyone help me with this problem.

My settings are as follows

Server Information

Incoming mail server is a IMAP server

Incoming mail (IMAP)
Outgoing mail (SMTP)

Does this make sense and does it look ok

It's possible that you haven't entered the correct SMTP port. It should be 587 click here

I have checked the smtp port and it's set to 587
