Ask a Mac Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi my name is ***** ***** to JustAnswer. I am reviewing your question and will post a reply ASAP.
Both might have different versions of iOS running.
Which email client are you using on them and which email service provider?
I'm not sure that AOL mail might not work as well with Mac OS X as GMail, it could be something to do with the ISP too. Maybe it works better if your ISP is also AOL.
I would recommend using GMail for Mac Mail, and webmail for AOL.
You're very welcome. It's no harm checking out what other things come with a Google account, such as Drive, Docs, Sheets, Smart Lock, Calendar.
Leave me a message when you get back, I'll respond ASAP. Goodnight thanks.
Hi, welcome back. Yes, the AOL email service never works well in email clients such as Mac Mail, or Mail on a mobile device. You could spend many hours getting the settings just so, and it will work for a few days and an update or something will put you back at square one.
I would recommend using GMail for any new correspondence going forward, and access AOL through webmail any time you need it for older correspondence. Then basically migrate over to Google as it is the best and most compatible.
You're very welcome Margaret. Let me know if you have any questions whatsoever about Google and I'll be happy to help.
If finished please take a moment to rate my service, have a great day!
