AOL Mail supports IMAP and POP protocols. This IMAP and POP protocols are two important protocols which are useful for setting up the email account in the mobile phones. The full form of IMAP is Internet Message Access Protocol, the full form of POP is Post Office protocol and the full form of SMTP is Simple Message Transport Protocol. These protocols make it easier in syncing AOL email services to an Android device. The IMAP assist you to sync your phone mail to the email server so that whatever changes you make to your email like replies, delete, mark mail, unmarked mail, etc can be seen both on server as well as on your device. This makes access of AOL email services very easy for the users as they can make changes in their email IDs directly through their phone and they doesn’t need to use laptop. The POP does not sync your email with the mail server so whatever changes you make to email on your device like replies, delete, mark mail, unmarked mail , etc can be seen only on your device not on the server. Using this protocol for syncing the AOL email services to a mobile phones, makes it difficult for the user to make any change in their email directly through their mobile phones and they need to log in to AOL website for making changes. This is why, IMAP is recommended for Email users or customers.
