Hi Skip -
I am actually using gmail and PSKmail...
My problem with PSKmail is getting communications between PSKmail and
Sylpheed set up - I assume that the same sort of setup takes place for
I can see the e-mails coming thru PSKmail, but they never seem to make it
to Sylpheed - I assume because some file pointer or path is not set correctly
From this page:
E-mail Application Setup Basics
Setting up access to the AOL® or AIM® Mail servers is simple, and the
settings are similar for most e-mail applications.
The basic information that you need to setup using IMAP and POP3 is as
a.. Your e-mail address is screenname@... or screenname@....
b.. Be sure to include the @... or @... suffix.
c.. The incoming mail (POP) server address is: imap.aol.com and
imap.aim.com for IMAP and pop.aol.com or pop.aim.com for POP3.
d.. Check the box for Leaving messages on the server.
e.. The outgoing mail (SMTP) server address is: smtp.aol.com or
smtp.aim.com, port: 587.
f.. Your user name is your AOL or AIM screen name.
g.. Your password is your AOL® or AIM® password.

I was about to ask the same question of some folks for PSKmail, so I am
