    Yeah, aol now supports imap connection to aol.

    Just set up a new account, use your username@aol.com and pocket outlook should detect everything correctly automatically and viola, you have aol email on your 660x.

    i did it but it doesnt work perfectly as i want it to. it doesnt remove email i read on my 6600 from inbox to old mail on my laptop wheni use regular aol.
    the best program was aol for palm or ppc but they dont have version to support 6600 or treo 650 yet. it works the best b/c it is like using aol on my laptop. it mimics exactly what i do with aol on my handheld right on my aol server. i can open aol on my computer and also go on aol on my handeld and as i read an email, i see it disappear from the inbox instantly etc

    aol for wm2003 is available at Pocket Gear and Handango. Works perfectly for emails, etc. Check it out.

    -Designed for Pocket PC 2003 1st Edition & Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 1st Edition. Not compatible with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition

    Has anyone tried it???

    do they even have the aol for 2003 second edition? i know it came out for the treo 650 but not the 6600 yet. i am told the aol for first edition wont be supported by second edition. it might seem to work but will eventually crash and burn

    I wonder how painful that crash and burn would be???

    I am finally getting a vx6600 from VZW to play with tomorrow and could throw it on to test it out.

    Not one crash and burn. Have read emails, sent files, etc. Works without a hitch.

    I'm trying to get my AOL mail to work with Pocket Email on Verizon EVDO. I setup a new account with name@aol.com and let it autodetect the settings, which was successful.

    My incoming mail downloaded fine. Then I wrote an email and added an attachment to send. When I did a send/receive, I got the message "The message could not be sent. Check that you have network coverage and that your account information is correct. Then try sending again." Any ideas?

    Also, I talked to AOL tech support today and asked why I had to pay for the PPC version of the software. They said it came free on the CD so I ordered one to see if it's really there.

    Thanks.

    I thought AOL had IMAP servers? Have you tried just setting the account up in Pocket Outlook using:

    imap.aol.com

    and

    smtp.aol.com

    as the servers?

    Ugh... AOL clients are bloated, poorly coded, and unnecessary... I would avoid installing them on any platform.

    Edit: I missed Vikes message... yes since it's IMAP when you read it in Pocket Outlook and delete it it will delete it also from AOL's server (and thus all other AOL clients). I don't think the deletion is processed though until you connect to the server again... same requirement for when you send a message--it doesn't actually send until you connect to the server again.

    You need to go into Pocket Outlook and go to the Accounts menu and choose "Accounts". Then pick your AOL account. Hit next three times and then click "Options". Hit next and then check the box that says "Outgoing e-mail server requires authentication". Then click next and then Finish.

    That should take care of it.

    Looks like authentication was the key. Thanks Dan!
