Sync Your AOL Mail Using POP and IMAP on Third-Party Email Client

Using third party email application has become the latest trend in the industry. And that is because of the features available on the third-party email apps.

Most third-party email apps offer a lot of extra features that you might not get in your default email client. Outlook and Thunderbird are leading this race and there are some other players behind them. You can use any email service provider with these email clients. You just have to know their IMAP and POP configuration settings.

Same goes for the AOL mail, you can use the IMAP and POP settings to sync your AOL mail data on a third-party email client. If you prefer using a third-party app for your AOL mail operations, you need to use IMAP and POP protocols to set up the email services.

In this article, we are going to talk about these settings and configuration. You can contact the AOL Customer Service Representative to get the correct settings for your email client or even configuring it.

Before looking at the settings of AOL mail first we will look at what are these protocols.

POP – This protocol downloads the copy of your mailbox to the email client. This means that if you delete an email from the account after the download, the email will remain in the app. POP protocol downloads the emails from the inbox only.

IMAP – IMAP protocol is used to sync all email data present within the account. It keeps the information identical in both the places and continuously syncs the account whenever it is connected to it. With the help of this protocol, you can sync all your mail data like calendar, contacts, etc.

You’ll need both settings to configure the email client properly. So, let’s look at the settings of the AOL mail to sync on the third-party apps.
