Question AOL Mail Forwarded to blackberry.net

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all. I have searched for this, but have come up short. A lot of the other threads discuss how to setup your AOL email with BIS....thats not my problem. I am trying to figure out how I can forward my AOL email to my [email address] address so that it becomes near instantaneous push? Is that even possible at all?

Thanks in advance.
And yes, I still use AOL...been with them for over 12 years and its a little hard to change all those accounts ive setup with this email address...

As far as I know AOL doesn't have an option to forward email. There are third party services that poll AOL as often as every minute, and forward to any email address, but there is a monthly fee involved.

How long is the BIS delay... I usually get my AIM and AOL email within a minute or two...

It can take as long as fifteen minutes, but usually its less than five.

Yeah, thats what I thought. The poll delay isnt too bad, but I was just looking if I could optimize to near instantaneous as much as possible...I already have my gmail going to my blackberry.net email...

Thanks all.

Without a doubt AOL does not forward email. There are services like I use called VersaForward that poll my AOL account as quick as every minute for about $30 a month. All of my company/customers use my Aol address so this service is very valuable to me. It does tick me off that AOL will not forward email but they like you to log on and look at their stupid ads as part payment for looking at your email.
