Motorola v551 AOL IMAP4 & AIM Settings (Cingular)


anyone have success with logging into aol email via the imap4 email feature in the phone? I tried the suggested settings from the the aol mobile IMAP webpage but i am still unable to login/access my aol email.

Standard Mail Settings:
Server: imap.aol.com
Port: 143

Server: smtp.aol.com
Port: 587 or 25

also, i tried using the aim feature in the phone but it doesnt recognize my user name/password (checked for case sensitivity).

would be great if someone could respond with working settings on their phone.

thanks!

E-mail Application Setup Basics
Setting up access to the AOL or AIM Mail servers is relatively simple, and the settings are similar for most e-mail applications. The basic information that you need is as follows:

Your e-mail address is screenname@aol.com or screenname@aim.com. Be sure to include the @aol.com or @aim.com suffix.
The Incoming mail (IMAP) server address is: imap.aol.com or imap.aim.com.
The Outgoing mail (SMTP) server address is: smtp.aol.com or smtp.aim.com, port: 587.
Your user name is your AOL or AIM screen name.
Your password is your AOL

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
