After endless back and forth I believe I have solved this problem. You have to use the web to log onto AOL, then go to 'Account Security' and turn off 'Two-step verification' and turn on 'Allow apps that use less secure sign in.' This will allow you to set up your email account in Outlook.

This has been documented before.  Some searches "might" have found it for you.  Its not clearly documented in the AOL info for Verizon users.

Is anyone having the problem with Office 365 where the POP and SMTP settings are already entered in Outlook as yahoo.com?  When I attempt to change the settings to pop.verizon.net and smtp.verizon.net, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't; however, when I exit Outlook and go back in, the settings have reverted back to yahoo.com???  I dealt with Microsoft for over 3 hours and was told that Verizon and AOL are migrating to yahoo; hence, the pre-filled in settings based on my verizon.net account.  I sent numerous emails to AOL with screen shots and got no help from them.  Anyone?  Thanks!

Re: Customer compensation for screwed up transition to New AOL mail for Outlook settings

Had to reset my PW and now the SMTP server won't validate with any setting.

 

How in God's green earth does anyone use an email client on Mac OS X? Please share your settings if you have it working?

 

I have tried OS X Mail, MS Outlook, and Thunderbird. None work.

 

TIA

Check that, Thunderbird does work with the AOL servers listed for IMAP and SNTP, but use the exact same settings in Mail or MS Outlook and the SMTP server never validates. Anyone?
