    Many programs are designed to send e-mail alerts when there is a malfunction or 'event'. Norton Ghost will do this and it is easy to configure when using a standard SMTP server. But, AOL's mail is proprietary and I need to know if anyone can tell me how to get Norton Ghost to send 'event' notifications by AOL mail.

    Example:
    If the user has a Charter account, I enter [b][email protected][/b] into the return address field smtp.charter.net into the SMTP server field and that's all it takes. It will then send event notifications without incident.

    So, what do I enter into the mail server field when it is AOL instead of Charter?
