    I accidentally activated Windows Mail and it has imported all of my AOL
    mail....old and new alike. I can deal with that. However, I am unable to
    send or reply or forward any mail through Windows Mail. Here is the error
    message I receive:

    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Fw: New Polital
    Party--POP', Account: 'pop.aol.com', Server: 'smtp.aol.com', Protocol: SMTP,
    Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10013, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    Can you help, please?

    PS - If I want to deactivate Windows Mail, will I lose all of my AOL mail it
    has imported?

    Thank you for the link, Steve. Where do I check these settings? I can't
    find them on my computer.
