Process for the solution

We are providing some settings which are require to configure by the users as they given over here.

How the users can configure the settings to use AOL Mail in email applications that are not developed by AOL, such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows 10 Mail, etc.use the servers which are supported by AOL and port numbers which are mentioned below while configuring mail settings.

If the users are connected with AOL Mail or the AOL app, they are not needed to make any changes to their settings.

Step 1: Find the IMAP/POP server and port settings in the email application.

The users can find these settings usually under an account settings menu in their application.

Step 2:The users are required to update their server and port settings and save their changes.

If the users updated their settings and can’t retrieve their mail or encounter an error, they have to check their username. It should be their full email address, including @aol.com.

Protocol Server Settings Port Settings
POP3 Incoming        mail        server     (POP3):          pop.aol.com

Outgoing   mail   server   (SMTP):      smtp.aol.com

Make sure SSL encryption is enabled for the
incoming and outgoing mail server.

POP3 – 995 – SSL

SMTP – 465 – SSL

IMAP Incoming       mail          server      (IMAP):          imap.aol.com

Outgoing    mail      server   (SMTP):   smtp.aol.com

The user’s Email client might prompt the users to select either IMAP or POP3.
