Enabling IMAP in AOL mail

Enabling IMAP in AOL mail allows you to use IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) to sync your AOL Mail into aNinja app.

Overview of IMAP protocol

IMAP allows us to sync aNinja and your account to keep the information in both places identical. This means that anything you do with messages or folders in your account at mail.aol.com will also occur in the app (and vice versa).

Below are the IMAP server settings you’ll need to use for AOL Mail and links to common email app setup instructions.

Incoming mail server (IMAP): imap.aol.com

Outgoing mail server (STMP): stmp.aol.com
