AOL Email Server Settings

AOL Email Server Settings

 

You’ve got mail!

Hmmm…well…perhaps you do, actually you are pretty darn sure you do, but where is it?!  Right about now you’re thinking, “Why is my mailbox empty?  It was working an hour ago!”

If you have found yourself in this situation when trying to check your AOL mail on your smartphone, then this post is for you.  Read on…

Most, if not all smartphones will give you the option to set up an AOL account through the native email app on your device.  I actually prefer to bypass this option and do the legwork myself.  Let me explain.

1.  When asked what type of account you would like to add, choose “Other.”

2.  After entering your email address and password, choose Manual Setup.

3.  If given the option, choose IMAP.

Use the following server settings:

Incoming Server Settings

imap.aol.com

Username = Email Address

Security = SSL (Put a check mark next to this option)

Port = 993

Outgoing Server Settings

smtp.aol.com

Username = Email Address

Security = SSL

The outgoing server requires authentication, so make sure to put a check next to that and type your password if it not there already.

Port = 465

    it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
