Hi there,

I am having some problems with Mail. I have set it up to work with my AOL account. I can receive emails fine, but when I go to send one, it just gets held in the Outbox folder forever! Here is how I have configured my account:

Incoming mail server: imap.aol.com
Username: jackhjharding
Password: xxxxxxxx

Outgoing mail server: smtp.aol.com
Server port: 587
Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) - ticked
Authentication: Password
Username: jackhjharding
Password: xxxxxxxx

Can anybody help me?

Many thanks,

Jack

There seems to be conflicting views on this from both Apple and AOL:

Yet, AOL says you can do it.

Thanks for your reply. I have followed the instructions but I am still having troubles sending email. They just get held in the Outbox folder!

Please somebody help me!
