    I recently did this... http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...rding-you.html Which will allow you to setup your g-mail account to check AOL for you.

    However, I ALSO setup my AOL address through the e-mail app [With the yellow rectangle coming out of the envelope that has the @ on it], and had no problem connecting to the server.

    You might try going to AOL on your computer and finding the information on setting up Pop3 [for outlook and other computer programs], then return to the app, put in your email address and password [full address, not JUST username] and then click "manual setup" to put those settings in yourself.

    [P.S. AOL does really suck. I'm phasing mine out. Trying to make sure all of my important stuff is changed.]

    Ya aol does suck, this email started as a netscape email account six years ago which might be part of the problem because its a .netscape.net address but goes to aol since they took it over. I was able to set up a new aol account and was able to use it on my phone so the netscape.net part must be the problem. I dont know if i am just out of luck then or not?

    Did you try that link for setting up G-mail to check your account? I can't see [at this point] why that wouldn't work.

    Kind of a crappy workaround, but if you want to keep them totally separate, you could always create a new g-mail account and set that one up to receive those e-mails, as well as return/compose from the netscape.net address...

    Maybe now that they're profitable it'll get better, I doubt it though.
