    I know you can for GMAIL through Outlook. Can you somehow setup AOL the same way? Or some other way.

    Thanks.

    I don't think GMAIL supports PUSH either now that it is iMAP only. WP and iOS have to use FETCH for Gmail, which results in reduced battery life.

    Apparently if you setup GMAIL as an Outlook account, it will PUSH. I dunno, I just followed instructions and it seems to work just fine. :)

    I can vouch. Set it up as ooutlook and it pushes Gmail to you :)

    Yeah, I was hoping there was a way to setup Outlook to fetch from AOL servers just like how we setup GMAIL, but I don't know. I don't understand the different types of email to know if that's possible or not.

    All I can tell you is that you should set it up using their iMAP severs instead of their POP servers so that changes such as read status, move status, and delete status will be synced. That still won't give you push though.
