Trouble linking Windows Mail & AOL


Niki N

I am trying to send a msg on Craig's List... when I reply to a vendor, I
receive a prompt to utilize Windows Mail automatically. When I tried to set
up an account on Windows Mail using an AOL address thru IMAP, I got the error
below. I have "My server reqrs authentication" checked in properties and I
am using "587" as my outgoing smtp port and "143" as incoming imap port. I
can see my AOL folders on the Windows Mail box and I can send and receive w/
aol, but when I try to send via WM, the msg sits in the Outbox.

Error msg:

"XAOL-UAS-MB authentication failed. None of the authentication methods
supported by your IMAP server (if any) are supported on this computer.
Your IMAP command could not be sent to the server, due to non-network
errors. This could, for example, indicate a lack of memory on your system.

Acct: AOL
Username: (private)
Protocol: IMAP
Port: 143
Secure(SSL): 0
Code: 800cccdf"

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

What was your customary email sending method before you started
getting the Craigslist issue? If other than Windows Mail, we may be
able to fix that problem as an alternative to fixing Windows Mail.

That looks more like an error message from Windows Live Mail rather
than Windows Mail. If so, you will get more help by posting that issue in
the WLM newsgroup:
or via your news reader: news://
