You are leaving out a very important thing to be done involving Steps 3 and 4 under Item 5 (Forwarding AOL mail to Gmail). What you don't mention is, you also have to fill in server name and port information. I keep getting the thing rejected because it says the deal is being timed out because I have entered incorrect server name and port information. First off, I have the AOL ports as either 25 or 465, neither of which are an option on the Port dropdown menu. Secondly, as far as I know, the AOL server name is I enter that. But I keep getting the transfer rejected. ??????
