Setting up email using AOL
I am having trouble setting up AOL as my email account in FMP 10 v3. I have set it up as follows:
Send via: SMTP Server (all information needed has been added in the Specify section including outgoing server as "smtp.aol.com", server port = 587, authentication is Plain Password, my user name and password). I have tried entered an email addterss in the "To" for testing purposes to no avail. The error message is "Email(s) could not be sent successfully."
I am running Windows XP Pro. I generally use MS Outlook with a Yahoo account and can get that to work using the email client function. However, I have developed this database for a friend and she only uses AOL. I contacted AOL and they said it was a FMP problem and were zero help other than to confirm I had the right settings as noted above. Anyone have any success in getting AOL to work?
Thank you in advance for your help and advice.
