Access your Aol.com (AOL Mail) Account from an Email Program using IMAP

Aol.com (AOL Mail) provides IMAP access to your Aol.com (AOL Mail) account, so you can connect to your email from mobile devices and desktop email clients.

 
 

Aol.com supports IMAP / SMTP

This means you don't have to use Aol.com's webmail interface! You can check your email and send messages using other email programs (like Mailspring, Outlook Express, Apple Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird). Using desktop email applications can improve your workflow. They typically offer more options, and your email is still available on your computer when you're disconnected from the internet.

Setup Your Aol.com Account with Your Email Program Using IMAP

To access your Aol.com email account from a desktop email program, you'll need the IMAP and SMTP settings below:

Aol.com (AOL Mail) IMAP Server imap.aol.com
