Help with using my mail on AOL dial-up
: Help! I’m in a hotel using AOL on dial-up (ouch!) and suddenly I can’t use SMTP mail for my work and personal accounts. This is NOT about using AOL mail. I use both Outlook and Communicator and neither works on sending. I went into tech support chat with AOL. They had me change my SMTP server to smtp.aol.com and change the port (on Outlook; can’t see where to change the port on Communicator) to 587. Reboot. Nothing. Nada. Crap. Go to the AOL help page they send me to and it’s only about getting AOL mail elsewhere. I don’t want any damned AOL mail. I want to use AOL as an ISP and, of course, AOL SUCKS!!!!!!
Can anybody similarly scarred help?
: I reset all my SMTP settings back to defaults and went online with my Treo PDAnet instead of AOL and was able to send mail that way. But Sprint service up here in the mountains is iffy, so I would like to use AOL to be able to send some frigging email. So I still need the help. Did I say that AOL SUCKS!!!!!?
