    Can you use POP account for AOL and download the emails and contacts to a PST and import it back to Outlook 2010.

    Assisted Solution

    I am sure you can do this with Mozila Thunderbird which is very similar to Outlook and the right expert program for mainstream email accounts like AOL, Hotmail, gmail etc.

    The only thing that does not work with POP account in Thunderbird is Yahoo.

    Creating of AOL profile in Thunderbird is very easy to follow. Thunderbird gives you straightforward options for these emails.

    My advice is to forget Outlook if you want to use these free emails.....
