Pegasus Mail and Verizon Mail on AOL

Verizon sent us to AOL e-mail but we kept our Verizon address. All was fine at first but recently Pegasus stopped connecting to the e-mail I can get it on the web but with Pegasus.


Any suggestions on how I can get Pegasus working again for my e-mail. I called AOL but they do not support Pegasus.
I know to get Thunderbird to work AOL you have to go to AOL and generate a password. I generated one for Pegasus but still no luck.


Any suggestions appreciated


Joe

I believe you are on the right path in generating a password for Pegasus Mail. You are using it in the SMTP and POP3 hosts configurations (or IMAP definition) in Pegasus Mail right?


If so, you will need to determine the point of failure. To do this you need to create an internet sessions logs. These logs show the conversation between Pegasus Mail and the AOL server. A review of them will usually reveal the point of failure. To enable internet session logs go to Tools > Internet options then tick the "Create internet session logs...) at the bottom of the General tab.


Now, when you attempt to send or retrieve messages a log file will be created of that attempt. They will be located in you directory mailbox directory in called TCPLogs. The file extension identifies the activity the generated the file (.smtp, .pop, or .imap). These are plain text files which can be view with Notepad or similar. IMPORTANT: DO NOT POST A LOG FILE because they contain your login credentials, either in plain text or encoded in a format that is very easily decoded.


You want to generate a log and then view it to see if you can identify the point of failure. If you require help with that, let us know which type of log file you are looking at so that we can advise on what portion of not to post.


Also, when you post back please let us know if you are using POP3 or IMAP.


Don't forget to turn off internet session logging when you are done troubleshooting.

Do you have the correct settings for pop3 or imap? It looks like you need to continue with (POP3): pop.verizon.net and not pop.aol.com.
