    Sorry, I don't have any experience with that, but I just wanted to welcome you to the forums. I'm sure someone with some knowledge about AOL will come along to offer some advice shortly. Best of luck!

    Change incoming port to 143 and outgoing port to 587. I had the same problem and this solved it.

    I have the same issue with my Domain email. Can not set up pop or imap.. I have checked checked and checked again. NO Setting no port works with the STOCK Email app.

    with k9 email app it sets up and works first time.. Frustrating as i would rather use the default email app.
