aol pop3 smpt settingsThis article will show you how you can retrieve your AOL (American On Line) emails from any email client that supports SMTP settings (as well as POP3 settings, of course). The procedure is really easy and  doesn’t require any special skill (see Hotmail POP3 settings). The reason why a lot of users decide to “download” their emails on email clients such Mozilla Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook is really simple. If you don’t have a lot of time, because for example you have to catch a plane, you can not sit down and read all of your emails using the traditional webmail client. You rather want to download all your emails to your computer and read them later while you are on the plane, train, bus etc using your small laptop or iPad. This guide will show you how to set any email client using SMTP and POP3 authenitication.

AOL SMTP Settings

SMTP server address: smtp.aol.com

SMTP user name: Your  AOL username (usually the name you used on your AOL email address. Ex: John@aol.com. In this case you will have to use “John” as SMTP username).

SMTP password: The password used to login to your AOL webmail client

SMTP port: 587

SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes

AOL POP3 Settings

POP server : pop.aol.com
POP user name : Your  AOL username (usually the name you used on your AOL email address. Ex: John@aol.com. In this case you will have to use “John” as POP3 username).
POP password: The password used to login to your AOL webmail client
POP port: 995
POP TLS/SSL required: yes

    Isn’t the TLS/SSL no (or maybe optional) as per http://about.aol.com/faq/openmailaccess ? I haven’t tried myself but was looking for this for someone else just the other day.
