    Setting up access to the AOL® or AIM® Mail servers is simple, and the settings are similar for most e-mail applications.

    The basic information that you need to setup using IMAP and POP3 is as follows:

    * Your e-mail address is screenname@aol.com or screenname@aim.com.
    * Be sure to include the @aol.com or @aim.com suffix.
    * The incoming mail (POP) server address is: imap.aol.com and imap.aim.com for IMAP and pop.aol.com or pop.aim.com for POP3.
    * Check the box for Leaving messages on the server.
    * The outgoing mail (SMTP) server address is: smtp.aol.com or smtp.aim.com, port: 587.
    * Your user name is your AOL or AIM screen name.
    * Your password is your AOL® or AIM® password.
