I left AOL because I wanted to use Outlook. Best decision I made regarding computers.

Well, I dont know how AOL e-mail actually works, but see if they have a pop server that you can use to configure Outlook.  I would ask them if this is possible.

First thing to do is, goto the AOL site, see if they list there SMTP and POP servers in there help pages.

If they do there usually called mail.aol.com and smtp.aol.com

If they arent you need to find out what they are, then you need to modify your account info within outlook to log on with your username and password. You will need to add internet email service to outlook.

If this fails ring aol and ask em if its possible knowning AOL this will be restricted.

As of now Microsoft and AOL have still not agreed on a protocol. In other words, if you want to use Outlook, you will have to get another ISP like I ended up doing.

I can recommend Earthlink/Mindspring. My connect is fast, no busy signals, and if you don't want to have much extra software, you can configure it to use only dial-up networking. Almost no overhead.

I have successfully added AOL accounts to Outlook for some of our employees....
You just set up the Incoming server as an IMAP server.  The address is imap.aol.com

The Outgoing mail  (SMTP) server is smtp.aol.com.  You need to change the outgoing (SMTP) port number to 587.  Also, the SMTP server requires authentication.  The feature is selected during the set-up process.  This means that in order to send e-mail, you are logging into the SMTP server with a username and password, which are the same as your AOL screen name and password.  

Your e-mail address will be your address@aol.com
