To access your AOL Mail account using the Post Office Protocol, you must configure your email client to support the correct settings.

The AIM Mail service has been discontinued, merged into AOL Mail.

AOL Mail POP3 Settings

AOL Mail's POP3 settings include:

  • Server address: pop.aol.com
  • POP user name: your full AOL Mail email address
  • POP password: password
  • Port: 995
  • TLS/SSL required: SSL

The POP3 protocol only governs the receipt of messages. To send mail using your AOL Mail account, configure your Simple Mail Transport Protocol settings to use server smtp.aol.com using SSL on port 465.
