I can't get Pegasus to work with aol mail. I changed the ports as AOL suggests but can't receive or send mail. I made the change on the program I have on my phone with no problem (not Pegasus) but Pegasus on computer will not work. Any suggestions appreciated.

Can you provide more information?

Pegasus Mail version:
OS (Windows) version:

Mail retrieving: POP3? IMAP?
Server host address:
Server port:
STLS, SSL, or none?

Mail sending:
Server host address:
Server port:

We have something wrong here. Your SMTP parameters below point to an
encrypted connection so should be your IMAP protocol. Try port 993
and check SSL radio button at Security pane, and lets see what
happens.

As said above this is a normal encrypted SMTP connection. Port 587
needs a STARTTLS bus. Check its radio button at Security tab.

For SMTP authentication I strongly recommend the use of "Login to the
SMTP server using a POP3 username/password" in "SMTP Authentication"
block.

HTH :)
