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
