Go into /Mail Preferences/Account Information/Server Settings/. Make sure [Authentication] is set to "Password". If your AOL mail server requires password authentication to import mail over to Mac Mail, you're going to need that setting.

This is my very first "recommendation" post on this forum, so I hope I'm right. :)
