    You have to setup the account properly within Mail. Once you do that, it will work fine. I recommend that you download and run the AOL Service Assistant. It will enter the proper settings in Mail for you.

    Anyone know of a page with a straight forward way that explains the settings/how-to of setting up Mail to receive from AOL Mail?

    Dude, trust me.

    I am in the process of switching from my AOL mail to Gmail.

    Right now, its kind of an annoying hastle, but in the long run, it'll be worth it.

    At least I'll be able to KEEP my emails.

    GMail is the way to go - 2.6 GB of storage free online vs. AOL's 10 MB online (or so for AOL users)
