  • Incoming Mail Server:imap.aol.com(Use port143for standard or993for SSL connections)
  • SMTP Outgoing Server Address:smtp.aol.comSet the port to587

but it wasn't working so I tried 

POP Setup Information

  • POP Username:YourUsername@aol.com(or @love.com, @games.com, etc.)
  • Incoming Mail Server:pop.aol.com(Use port110for standard or995for SSL connections)
    • Remember to check the option toLeave messages on the server
  • SMTP Outgoing Server Address:smtp.aol.comSet the port to587

It was still not working...

Can you make sure that the domain in your username matches the domain in the settings?  For your username/account, did you put name@aol.com or name@aol.fr?

My bad, it's a @aol.com but i'm living in france. I put an @aol.com for my username. 

Pop is working well using pop.aol.com and 110

Imap is not working using imap.aol.com and 143....

Why that?

Are you trying to use POP or IMAP?  Is POP still working?  You can find the full settings at mail.aol.com by clicking 'Settings' and selecting IMAP and POP.
