OK not all my own work actualy read that you can access aol email with outlook express so tried it with qpmail

the settings you need are

OUTGOING

AUTHENTICATION

Tick login using and put
your normal screenname credentials
in username and password


INCOMING

ACCOUNT TYPE : IMAP4
normal screenname username and password
