  • I have been using the Blue Mail app for 3+ years. I changed my password for one of my five AOL email accounts and now I cannot get it to work on Blue Mail. I completely uninstalled app and reinstalled. Can add my other 4 AOL accounts but not the one I changed the password on. Before anyone asks, yes, I am certain I am entering the new password correctly.

  • I fixed my phone email problem by deleting the account under the settings, accounts, email, then adding a new account, email, and setting it up again. Instantly everything worked right again. & BTW, the default outgoing port was set to 587, I had tried switching it to 465, didn't help, but after re-installing the email account, it had set it to 465. Now all works well.

  • Until two weeks ago my android phone was able to receive and sendAOLl emails. Now it receives incoming but will not send outgoing emails. The settings I have for SMTP.AOL.COM server are Port 465; Security type SSL/TLS accept all certificates; Requires Sign in. I tried port 587 as suggested but the problem remains. Please advise corrective action. Thanks you

  • For incoming AOL you have to use: SSL with port 995. You will need to select the manual configuration, otherwise it will keep trying to use imap for incoming. For outgoing use the default smtp.
