    I managed to use the posting by email using Word 2007 and 2010, but I need not depend on software installed, so I tried to use the post from WP.

    I created an email account on http://www.aol.com *; successfully tested sending and receiving on my client e-mail program (Windows Mail in Windows Vista) and AOL webmail.

    Then I went into my WP (panel -> options -> writing) and put POP and IMAP settings (besides ID and password); when I test both settings (POP and IMAP) at address

    http://www. [domain]. com.br / [wp-directory] / wp-mail.php

    the SAME message appeared:
    POP3 connect: Error []

    Where am I going wrong (in email service, setup WP, WP version)?
    Can I post on web screens of my WP, email program and AOL webmail if this helps answer the doubts.

    ...
    * This email service worked in my email client program and Windows, unlike others such as Gmail, Hotmail or paid particular email.

    If you are using postie then wp-mail.php is not the page to use.

    Instead go to Settings->Postie and click either (or both) "Test Settings" and "Run Postie"

    Did you see this message:
    "Try putting in your full email address as a userid and try again"

    Friends, I put email in short mode (username) and full mode (username@domain.com). I tried IMAP and POP protocols, too. Is there any email service or configuration recommended for "trial mode" of this plug-in?

    When you click "Test Config" what message do you get under the "Mail Tests" heading?

    For AOL the protocol is either POP3-SSL or IMAP-SSL

    I'm not sure what you mean by "trial mode"

    Dear Wayne,
    sorry to ask but, what your level of experience with the plug-in postie?

    Forgive my mistakes with english, I wanted know if there is a default (or example) setting to use Postie (e-mail service recommended, among others indications).

    Even if you can not help, thank you just the same.

    I am the maintainer of the plugin, that is my level of experience.

    Are you using the IMAP or the IMAP-SSL setting? It is unclear from your previous posts and IMAP-SSL is required for AOL.

    I'm using IMAP in AOL.
    I put at internet all settings that I'm using with AOL E-mail:

    I accept suggestions about a good (free) e-mail service to use with postie, or the right settings, if the best solution... Thanks for attention and patience!

    For AOL you need to use IMAP-SSL not just IMAP.

    Wayne, you know to configure this IMAP-SSL in AOL or WordPress (or where I can find this information)? If don't is just to say, we close this topic and I will search this information in other forum. Thanks.

    I discover at
    http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_AOL_Mail_with_Mozilla
    the configuration ports for AOL e-mail (inclusive IMAP-SSL); the settings that I'm using already are for IMAP-SSL: port 993.
    Someone in WP Community has some suggestion to help?
