Fill in the blanks as seen below.
Incoming mail server (POP3): localhost (or 127.0.0.1 or your network
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.aol.com OR localhost
eMail2Pop offers two options for your outgoing mail. Both options send
your mail through the AOL server and do not rely on other services.
* Choose smtp.aol.com for best mail compatibility and accurate
mail sending. AOL's mail server may be unavailable once in a while or
cause your mail to be delivered slower than usual. Note that AOL will tag
your outgoing message with your actual internet IP address. If you
receive a connection failure, go to your Outlook account's Advanced Properties
and change the SMTP port number from 25 to 587.
* Choose localhost if you would like eMail2Pop to send all
your mail for you. Use this option if the above server smtp.aol.com
fails, is unavailable, or if your non-AOL ISP blocks access to the AOL SMTP
server. This option also provides additional privacy by hiding your
actual internet IP address.
Click the More Settings button and head over to the Outgoing Server tab.
Check "My outgoing server requires authentication" and "Use same settings as
incoming mail server"
Now you are all set to use Microsoft Outlook
NOTE: Do not use the Test Account Settings button because it does not support
e-mail authentication and will result in a failure every time.
