How to setup AOL email on Galaxy S4 Email app ?

In this post, you’ll learn how to configure AOL email account on the pre-installed Email app automatically and manually.

i. Auto-configure AOL email account.

The Email app will auto-configure an AOL email account to use IMAP as the incoming mail protocol. If you have a preference to use POP3, kindly refer to the manual method.

  1. On your Galaxy S4, launch the stock Email app.
  2. If this is your first time using the Email app, you should see the Set up email screen. If you already have one or more email accounts configured, tap the Menu button > Settings > + sign to get to the same Set up email screen.
  3. On the Set up email screen, enter your AOL email and password, and then tap Next for auto-configuration.
    set up email
  4. The Email app will automatically configure the IMAP and SMTP servers for you. When it finishes, follow the rest of the on screen instructions to complete the setup.

ii. Manual method using Pop 3

If you’re configuring the AOL email account manually, you have the option to choose either IMAP or POP3 as your incoming mail protocol.

For this tutorial, I’ll be using POP3 as an example.

  1. On your Galaxy S4, launch the stock Email app.
  2. If this is your first time using the Email app, you should see the Set up email screen. If you already have one or more email accounts configured, tap Menu button > Settings > + sign to get to the same Set up email screen.
  3. On the Set up email screen, enter your AOL email and password, and then tap Manual setup.
  4. When you’re asked to select the type of account, tap POP3 account.
    add email account
  5. Next, enter the Incoming server settings:
    1. User name: (yourusername@aol.com)
    2. Password: (yourpassword)
    3. POP3 server: pop.aol.com
    4. Security type: SSL
    5. Port: 995
    6. Delete email from server: Never
  6. Configure the Outgoing server settings:
    1. SMTP server: smtp.aol.com
    2. Security type: SSL
    3. Port: 465
    4. Check “Require sign-in”
    5. Username: (yourusername@aol.com)
    6. Password: (yourpassword)

    incoming server settings aol outgoing server settings

  7. After the incoming and outgoing servers are successfully authenticated, follow the rest of the on screen instructions to complete the setup.
