It takes less than 2 minutes to set up AOL email on your iPhone. By default, the account is added using the IMAP email protocol and this is what will be detailed here. You can also use POP3 to configure AOL email on the iPhone; the details of which can be found in another post. FYI, all AOL email accounts are both IMAP and POP3 enabled.
Setting up AOL using IMAP enables your iPhone to be in sync with the online account. This is a good option if you’re one of those meticulous types who want everything thoroughly organized and exactly the same… we all have our idiosyncrasies, don’t we?
This was the default set up of an AOL email account on the iPhone and is definitely simpler than POP3 (Post Office Protocol) configuration. The cellphone uses IMAP to connect to the server which download the messages and keeps the account on the device synchronized with the online server.
When my AOL messages are downloaded they are not retained on the server is there any way to deal with that? I have the service protection plan and they say it is AOL’s issue.
A copy of AOL messages will be retained on the server only if you use this setting when configuring the account using POP. You may also look at the IMAP option.
Yesterday my AOL email stopped coming to my IPHONE. I am still getting it on my PC.
Got AOL email working on my iPhone. I’m so excited. Thanks.
The IMAP server for incoming and the outgoing servers are not working on my wireless network. They work fine on 3G. How can I fix this issue?
It seems your Internet provider is blocking access to the AOL servers. Please contact them directly.

In 1987, three years after it's launch in the Soviet Union, the game was released in the United States by Spectrum Holobyte for the IBM PC and Commodore 64, the largest selling computer of all time. Tetris was developed by Alexey Pajitnov, a Russian computer programmer, when he was working for the Dorodnicyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science. One of his responsibilities was testing the capabilities of new hardware. And for this, Pajitnov came up with the idea of designing a game. Since he was working on the Electronika 60, a text-only terminal, the original Tetris game had letters instead of graphics. The game proved to be a hit with his colleagues and soon became popular in the Soviet Union. Tetris then found its way to Budapest, Hungary, and was picked up by Spectrum Holobyte who developed a version of it and started to market it in the United States. [more...]
