    Default How to setup AOL on Zimbra desktop

    Has AOL working perfectly and then it stopped sedning e-mails and they just remian in the outbox.

    Deleted my account and started to re-setup

    Incoming mail

    1. What type of account? I seem to only be able to get IMAP to work for incoming with incoming server as imap.aol.com
    2. Does the port matter? Default is 143
    3. Security - none

    Mail is seen in inboxes so I guess the above is OK

    Sending mail

    1. SMTP server set as smtp.aol.com and port default is 25.
    2. No security or authentication - is that needed?

    3. Validate and save gives:

    Cannot connect to "SMTP server". Please check host/port and network connectivity

    This was so straightforward when I started using Zimbra desktop but there are no simple instructions for setup that I can find anywhere

    Thanks

    If I leave SMTP blank, I can just read but not send

    Default

    OK tried checking everything

    Add security and authentication and name etc and it seems to work.

    PS Not all of us are IT guru's and this is a tool to get the job done so please give some more simple information on how to set up at least the most common accounts in desktop
