Features not available in other mail applications
When you access AOL Mail from another email application, you can send and receive emails, and have access to your AOL folders. However, these features are not available:
Message Status: You cannot retrieve the unopened mail from AOL users and you cannot verify the status of a message sent as you can from the AOL mail interface.
Unwanted mail. You cannot access the Report spam button. To report an email as spam, move it to the spam folder or spam folder of the email client.
Deleted email Some email applications do not show deleted email. Some show deleted emails in the original folder but mark the message for deletion.
AOL recommends using the IMAP configuration on an email client instead of POP3, although both protocols are compatible.
IMAP synchronizes the service with your AOL email account. Anything you do with a message in the email service or in the application is displayed in the AOL Mail interface in AOL.
POP protocols do not synchronize email actions. POP protocols download a copy of the AOL email. If you delete the email in one place, it is not deleted in the other.
