    Just had a question regarding the program iMail that comes standard with all macs. I do not currently own a mac but will be getting my first one and making the jump in the upcoming summer. I am waiting for the new operating system, hopefully the new intel santa rosa, and also the new line of macbook pros??? Anyway back to the original question. With the iMail program can you integrate it with an AOL mail account or email? I currently use AOL for email and internet access at home. Can I use my aol email with iMail??

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    I believe AOL mail has an IMAP server, so yes, you can

    Yes, I currently do this and its no problem at all. AOL has directions on their website.

    And by the way, its just Mail.

    For the record, I do this and it works great.

    Only downside is, if you want to keep your email (like me), you still need to move it to your "saved" folder (just like AOL's web browser interface).

    P.S.
    I realize now that it is just Mail and not iMail ;)
