    I just bought my new Macbook Pro this morning :D but I am having trouble setting up my email accounts on it. I have had no problems with hotmail and googlemail, but when I try to add my Mail.com/AOL account it shows this screen. Does anybody know how I can add it? :confused:

    Heres the screen it shows:

    You might want to try showing what "this screen" is :)

    I did a quick google search on mail.com servers, since using mail.com as your pop server didn't sound right. At a minimum, many ISPs further divide these up. For example, adding a pop or pop3 as part of the name. like pop.mail.com, or smtp.mail.com for sending.

    I found a site that discussed this (I didn't realize AOL was involved with mail.com now): http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-85461-mail-com-server-type

    This might be a help.
