Question and Answer

  • I have ported my verizon.net email to AOL and I am trying to set up an android email program to access and send to the new AOL email account (abyss2u@verizon.net). While setting it up I can get the imap incoming server setting to work. However, when I add the smtp.aol.com outgoing server settings (smtp.aol.com; SSL; port 587; and the user name "abyss2u@verizon.net"; and password settings: the android program tries to confirm the above setting and the response is "Cannot safely connect to server" error. Why do my incoming server settings work, but the outgoing smtp settings do not? -able P.S. I do not want to use the AOL android app to access my ported over verizon.net email account.
