    switching emails from aol verizon to thunderbird


    I have tried to switch from aol to about 6 email providers and keep running into an error. Most of the times it does't accept my password - which is correct. Other times - I get a configuration error. Ideally I would like to use Thunderbird. I have been trying to do this for about three months on and off and just can't seem to figure out a way to do this. It shouldn't be this hard in 2020. :- Any help/guidance would be be greatly appreciated.


    I initially had verizon which was acquired by aol - if this makes a difference.


    Thanks,

    Sam

    Outlook and Verizon Mail on AOL

    AOL has merged with Yahoo now both belong to Oath. My rarely used AOL mail however is working OK with IMAP on Thunderbird so must be just Verizon related.

    All AOL based Email, that's AOL, AOLUK, Aim, Compuserve, Netscape and Verizon now goes through mx-aol.mail.gm0.yahoodns.net: Which is probably why it keeps throwing up the Yahoo stuff?

    Outlook and Verizon Mail on AOL

    Sometime back Verizon gave their e-mail operations to AOL. All has been working well until earlier this week when suddenly the IMAP folders would not sync. Checking online, all that could be found was to reset the IMAP settings in Outlook. After doing this multiple times, uninstalled/reinstalled Office 365. Seems Outlook wants to go to Yahoo servers instead of AOL. Using manual repair, attempts to change them to AOL were not successful, kept reverting back to AOL.
    I contacted AOL, response was to reset the IMAP settings, which I've done many times.
    Finally in a web search I found two threads in answers.microsoft.com about others with the same issues. AOL was giving them the run around as well.
    Finally I got another response from AOL:
    "Good Day,

    Thank you for getting back to us.

    Based on the information provided, please note that you can encounter this situation due to the recent updates made to our website.

    Unfortunately, at the moment, there is no option available that allows to make any changes to the specific settings.

    Given the situation, you have the option to install and use the AOL App or you can access your account, by going to mail.aol.com.

    We hope this information will be of use. Please let us know if we may assist you in the future.

    Best regards,

    Obviously AOL has no intention of resolving this issue. Not good news for Outlook users.

    For those interested the threads I'm following are:
