I fear the answer to this is it's not possible but I figure if anyone would know it's the experts here.  I am trying to setup someone's AOL Mail to send out emails from a different address.  In other words, their email address on AOL is someguy@aol.com and, like with just about any other email app, I'd like them to be able to click the dropdown by the "from" field and change it to someguy@someotherdomain.com.  The "someotherdomain" address is a functioning redirect to their AOL address so if there was some way to authorize it (like with Gmail or Yahoo), it could be authorized.

But unlike Yahoo or Gmail, can't figure out where this can be setup.  Like I said, I fear it can't.  But thought I would check.

Thanks in advance for any help.

No this is not possible
You cannot use SEND AS or change the From in AOL like you can using OUtlook w/ Exchange Server

If its a single email, always coming from and going to the same address

You could setup another email account using another service providor

Then create a rule that forwards any emails received into the AOL Account to the Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Account

The send the email from one of those accounts

Not possible, so no real solution.  But helpful comment.  Found a workaround.
