retreive mail from outlook express

by SyscoKid In reply to retreive mail from outloo ...

The short answer is No. AOL's mail system is proprietary and was designed not to work with standard SMTP/POP clients. However, there is a 3rd party vendor, http://www.enetbot.com, that has program that can filter the mail into your favorite windows POP/SMTP client.

Also, there is a utility called AOL Windows Messaging Transport. I don't know where to downloaded, but if you search the Internet for "AOL MAPI" or "AOL Windows Messaging" you should be able to locate a copy. Intended to be an AOL add-on, it never made it out of second beta, but as I hear it's very stable.

The eNetBot software I found to be very unstable and buggy. They are also constantly having to update it due to AOL server changes which impact the eNetBot program and prevent it from working. It also costs $20 to own. "

You need to find out the Pop3 details for your account.

You should know your login and password, so all you'll need is the server name or number (ip).

In outlook, goto TOOLS, ACCOUNT and NEW and then fill in the details, the instructions should be enough, once you have the above details.

Another thing to try, but only if you have outlook express v5.0 or above.
Sign up for a hotmail acount.
OE5 + is designed with hotmail interlaced and you can obtain an account directly from OE or from hotmail.com
To receive all your aol mail, just apply a filter to foreward all the mail to your hotmail account.
I have 5 hotmail accounts in Outlook Express 5.1 and it's great.
to make the connection:
In OE click <File> Identities> Add New Identity
It will give you the option to sign up fora hotmail account and you will be all set.

Good Luck...

Been there, dont that, this cannot be done, its would be easier to get a hotmail account and use that in Outlook than trying (and failing) to set up AOL. Im with you EDTech. This is impossible.
