    Not many people here use AOL and have their own domain. Usually the two don't go together. That's likely why you're not getting any responses. Has anyone talked to the domain hosting company?

    Since I don't use AOL, I wouldn't know.

    This information is heavily documented on the Internet. All you gotta do is a Google search. :)

    Microsoft has documented how to set Outlook Express for AOL. It's easy, just follow the instructions. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883081

    Also, you should consult AOL Help Articles:
    http://postmaster.aol.com/imap/clientsetup.html
    http://help.channels.aol.com/topic.adp?catId=1&sCId=416
    http://help.channels.aol.com/kjump.adp?articleId=217452
    Wizard: http://help.aol.com/help/rfPlayerWi...Mode=&RFID=RF_USINGAOLWITHTHIRDPARTYEMAIL_1_1

    Good Luck. If that doesn't help you, you should contact their Tech Support for further assistance (800) 827-6364
