N.j.b.c.candc@aol.com


Step 1 Tap the "Mail" app on your iPad's home screen, tap "Other" and tap "Mail Account." If you already have an email account set up, tap the "Settings" icon on the home screen, tap "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" in the sidebar and tap "Add Account."
Step 2 Type your name into the "Name" box using the onscreen keyboard. You can enter any name you want; your iPad sends this name with each email you send.
Step 21 Type your full AOL email address in the form "Name@aol.com" into the "Address" box. If you have an AOL email address with a different domain, such as "@games.com" or "@love.com," use that domain instead.
Step 31 Enter your AOL email password into the "Password" box.
Step 41 Type a description for your email account into the "Description" box and tap "Next."
Step 51 Tap "IMAP" at the top of the New Account pane.
Step 61 Type "Imap.aol.com" into the "Host Name" box under "Incoming Mail Server."
Step 71 Type "Smtp.aol.com" into the "Host Name" box under "Outgoing Mail Server."
Step 81 Enter your full AOL email address into the "Username" boxes under both "Incoming Mail Server" and "Outgoing Mail Server."
Step 91 Enter your AOL email password into the "Password" boxes under "Incoming Mail Server" and "Outgoing Mail Server."
Step 101 Tap "Next." Your iPad verifies the settings.

How can i get on aim


First, you'll need to go to http://www.aim.com/ and click on the orange Download AIM button. Once you have downloaded and either saved the file and run it later by double clicking the file name, or by running it directly when prompted, once it is installed, you'll have to create a "screen name" (the name you'll want people to know you by--an alias of sorts) and a password (something secure--it's best to mix upper and lower case letters and include at least one number, but make sure it's something you'll be able to remember--NEVER give out your password to anyone!). After its checked your screen name against others already in the system, to make sure there aren't any duplicates, you're ready to go. All you need to now is add your friends' screen names and to give them yours. Happy Messenging!

Having trouble with password i am a new aim user every time i put password in says invalid help


If your password doesn't work
There are several reasons why your password might not work:
  • The password you entered isn't capitalized correctly. AIM passwords are case-sensitive, so if your password is "Password," entering "password" (note the lowercase "p") won't work.
  • (For AOL subscribers only) You've recently changed your AOL password and are trying to use your new password with the AIM service. Even if your AOL screen name is also your AIM screen name, changing the password for one doesn't affect the other.
You can have your password sent to your e-mail address by submitting your screen name at the following Web page: http://www.aol.com/aim/password.adp.

I want to change my name on line. It is Marydwagner@aol.com I want it to be marydphillips@aol.com How can I make this happen ?


If you are using aol as your service provider and are using their browser, go to the settings tab at the top left of the screen. In settings there will be a heading under accounts or users. Click on it and follow the directions to add a screen name to your account. You are allowed 6 or 7 I believe. First and foremost the name has to be available at aol. You may be dissapointed to find out that the name is already in use by someone else.

I would like to add my son to my aol account but I do not know how to do it. I put his name on as a screen name but cannot add him to my aol account. I do not know a lot about computers. Icannot use my...


I just saw that you posted this several times and I apologize no one helped you. This is the first time I've seen it. But you happen to get the resident AOL expert. So to add a person to your AOL account here's what you do:

1)Log on under your account
2)At the top toolbar, click on keyword
3)click on go to keyword
4)when the keybox pops up, type screen names and click on go
5)Under the screen name column, click on create new screen name (you might need to enter the answer to your account security question in the box at the right)
6)Once the box pops up for the screen name, enter the one you'd like to use for your son. Just because you choose one doesn't mean that it is available. You might want to have several he wants to choose from. After you've tried a few it will make a few suggestions for you. You DON'T have to use one of these. You can keep trying one of your own as long as you like until you find one that's available. Once you find one that's available that you want to use, it will ask you to select an age category for him. Select which ever age you prefer.
7)DO NOT check the master screen name box
8)Check the box that says I accept these terms
9)Turn on or off the AOL activity report (description on right)
10)Click the continue button
11)Enter his password twice and click next.
12)Select one of the security questions for his account and enter his answer twice. Make sure you type it the same both times.Then click continue.
13) Congratulations! It will show you the info for his account.

Make sure when you type screen names, passwords, answers to security questions and things of that nature, that you remember EXACTLY how they were typed. If a letter is capitalized then it must be capitalized. (not for screen names)
Write everything down. It's easy to forget. Don't mistake a o for an 0. I hope this helped you and told you everything you needed to add him to your account.
If this solved your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be more than happy to assist you further. Thanks and have a nice day.

Cannot Send or Receive Email


This may happen if your Internet connection uses dynamic DNS. Change the email application to use a fully qualified domain name for the login. A fully qualified name is composed of both the host and domain. Correct: yourusername.aol.com Incorrect: yourusername The correct fully qualified name can also be derived by putting your router's username and domain name together as they appear on the router's setup screens. E.g., if username = sueandfred, and domain name = aol.com, then the fully qualified name = sueandfred.aol.com. (Note the dot between the username and domain.)
