    ok so my mail was working today on edge network . now Im on wifi at home and now aol wont respond . i deleted the my mail account and reset it on the iPhone and now it says aol account vervication failed . the imap sever imap.aol.com is not responding. check your network connnection ...
    ok so i did this twice and it did the same thing . so I thought it might be my network .
    I can log on to aol on my computer though using wifi. so is anyone else having this problem with mail ? could this be an iPhone or aol problem?

    I tried - reseting iPhone , restarting .. everything ...

    didn't reset my wireless router . that should not be a problem though .

    i reset my router ... so far nothing. what the heck ! is aol having problems . i cant get my mail on my iPhone!

    Using aol mail is your first problem, LOL but I would check AOL's troubleshooting page and see if they have a section on then iPhone yet.

    Try deleting the account from your iPhone and then make sure use iTunes to resync and make sure that your AOL account is set to sync

    how would i set my aol account to sync ?

    i went a ahead and did a full restore of the iPhone .. i decided what the heck . ill try it. since Apple would prob tell me to do that anywaz if i keep having this problem . -- it did not fix the mail with aol. this will also be a test of how the iPhone will work after a full restore. if I post a mad message saying after restore the iPhone sucks then you will know . lol

    so im going to go ahead and look on aol to read up on anything on the iPhone. right now im syncing my songs an videos back to the iPhone.

    again how would i set my aol account to sync ?

    well I wasn't thinking that aol doesn't download to your computer so as far as u know there isn't a way to sync with iTunes. I hope you can find something aol. As much as I hate aol I doubt they would let something like iPhone users sit in the dark without their emails. I'll do some searching for you as well.

    I found this site on the AOL Journal section. Maybe it will help..

    well I am glad I could help. I just wish I would have done the search before u typed that whole other thing. But hey its good practice for the iPhone. I do most if not all my posting from my phone.
