AOL SMTP - Less secure apps

Operating System: Not Applicable

AOL has implemented security similiar to Google's "Allow Less Secure Apps" for SMTP (Email).

Here is my valid setup:

Email Address:

Username:  full email address

Password:  account password

SMTP Server:

Port: 587

Encryption:  STARTTLS

You also need to make changes to the Security settings of the AOL account:

"If you use AOL two-step verification or an older email app, you may need to use an app password to access AOL Mail."  Create and manage third-party app passwords
