Accessing AOL on your Handheld PC

Handheld PC News

Posted 20 years ago | News | Chris Tilley 0 comments

Users of AOL have had a rather rough time with regards to services on the H/PC. While there have been AOL clients, their reliability has been poor, and if your a MIPS or SH3/SH4 user the situation worsens.
AOL recently implemented the IMAP protocol on their mail system. Allowing users the option of accessing e-mail from a permanent store on the mail server - rather than simply download it as with POP.

Donna, HPC:Factor regular and devoted Intermec 6651 user contacted us last night to report that while there seems to be problems in accessing the new IMAP service via Pocket Outlook: Inbox, Pocket Internet Explorer has come to the rescue.

e-mail proxy service 'mail2web' allows you to connect to IMAP4 mail services - you will need to register in order to access the IMAP service through the Advanced Log-in.
When asked for the server address simply select IMAP and enter: imap.aol.com as the server address. Enter your AOL details as normal.
You should now be able to access your AOL mail using Pocket IE (Confirmed on version PIE4)

Thanks Donna
