    Does anybody know how to set up the apple mail program for an AOL account?

    I've set up the mail program using earthlink before, but never an AOL account.

    What do I type in for Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail server. Is there anything special I need to know?

    Thanks for any help.

    When you're getting mail, you shouldn't be connecting to smtp at all. The server you want for receiving mail is imap.aol.com. Is this how you have it set up?
