Default AOL Email via BIS

Please Login to Remove!

Recently I was not receiving AOL email via the BIS. I resent the service books but still no messages. I deleted the AOL account in the BIS and have been unsuccessful in getting it re-established.

After typing the email address, password, confirmation password in the BIS, I click Accept at the disclaimer screen. Then I get a pop-up error "An error occurred during email account validation. Please check your information and try again"

Is anyone else seeing this? All started since BIS 2.3 upgrade last weekend.
All other integrated accounts work fine.

AOL works for me after BIS 2.3 upgrade, just like it did before.

I wish I received my e-mails 1 minute after they hit the aol account. I still have the 10 to 15 minute lag time between the two....but gmail is instant....

as for the initial problem...I honestly dont know what to do, about getting the account going.

you may want to try changing the PW for your AOL account and then attempt re-integrate it, preferably a PW with no numbers, AOL and RIM had a huge problem with this at one time. I would also double check with AOL to ensure that they still allow 'pop' access

AOL is IMAP and should work with no problems on the blackberry.

Are you polling the AOL account from somewhere else? When I tried polling it from two Blackberrys at the same time, I would get an error when attempting to set it up on the second device.
