I downloaded the AOL service assistant. It created the AOL account in Mail.app fine. Sending and receiving fine. But it crashes when it tries to import the Personal Filing Cabinet. Any suggestions?

works good to move aol to Mail, except it did not creat a Trash for AOL mail messages, so when you delete a message you cannot go to a Trash folder that I cam locate to save a deleted message if you change your mind.

With this and the excellent AOL Connect software, we're finally free of the horrible pitifulness of that awful 5.0 application!

Mac Mail with AOL Service Assistant 1.0 (38) installed is a wonderful tool for viewing incoming mail to an AOL screenname. When it comes to handling multiple accounts and downloading attachments, it's a must-have.

Unfortunately, this combination is not able to consistently SEND email through AOL's smtp server.

If this is solved by AOL, this software is a godsend to those who can't move from AOL email addresses readily. If it is not correctedL, this software becomes just another misguided venture by this sleeping giant.

If you've got AOL 5.0 and mac osx you're mixing apples and oranges. 5.0 is not compatible with osx nor is it supported in that usage.

I hate to tell you, but AOL hasn't used 5.0 for about 4 years. There's an AOL version 10.3.6 now and 10.3.7 is in Beta.

I have run the Assistant v1.0 on my iBook and it worked like a charm; Calendar; Mail; and iChat all settings are there. I should also have copied the AOL 5.0 software from my old desktop then it would also have migrated the previosuly downloaded messages.

It does NOT migrate files saved in the filing cabinet. All it does is import address book to the Mac Address Book, favorites into Safariand help setup the Mail app and iChat.
