Access AOL Mail via Email Clients

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]You can use any email clients to read and send AOL Mail messages, like Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple mail, Foxmail, etc. AOL mail support IMAP and POP.

You can set up your AOL Mail on email applications either through IMAP or SMTP, see AOL IMAP/POP/SMTP settings here. IMAP has its advantages over POP. IMAP helps accessing your mailbox from different computers and locations. The IMAP service allows the user to download only the message headers and decide if they want to actually download the rest of the message and the attachments. These days, IMAP is the more common option. It keeps your email (and folders) on the remote email server, which means you have access from multiple locations – including mobile. On the other end, POP requires you to download your Inbox (no folders) to your computer before you can read it. You can also configure to delete the email ps from remote server while downloading a copy to an email client. Find out more here: difference between POP and IMAP mail.
