These are the simple steps that one can use to set up AOL mail for iPhone.

Now, you can simply open the mail app to perform all other typical mail app duties and functions. Always make sure to check the junk folder from time to time as sometimes many important emails get tucked into that folder, which of course, can be easily moved back to the primary inbox in case you want to. You can simply do so by accessing the junk folder and opening the mail that you need to move or see. This goes for both IOS and Android platforms.

The AOL mail is as ancient if one must say, as it can be. Most of the users have been accessing this email service back when the full form of AOL was the “America Online” dial-up service. This comes off as one of the main reasons why people want to set up their email account on their iPhone or their iPad.

Manual Email Configuration Server Settings

Make sure to know that it is not necessary to use these settings with the automatic setup that we have discussed earlier in this blog.

Here are the POP/SMTP servers for AOL email

  • Incoming mail server (POP3):, port- enter 995 for SSL

Here are the IMAP/SMTP servers for AOL email

As we have mentioned earlier, it is not necessary to use in case you are using the traditional setup in the mail app but if for some reason you are trying to configure your email account in a third-party app. All you need to do is to click on the “others” option, to begin with, and you are good to go. One of the major perks of using a third-party app is that you can manage more than one email on your phone which saves time and energy, which is why it is a great option for people to set up their email account in such third-party clients.
