I found that using this method caused me quite a few headaches with synchronization problems with Outlook trying to connect to the mail servers on AOL. I have a Verizon account and have been using the app on my phone as well as setting it up on my Windows 10 OS. After having some syncing issues and taking 4-5 minutes every time you hit send/receive, I was finally able to figure out how to fix the problem. If you go into your Control Panel, you can select the Mail Icon. There you can select the option to view the profiles listed for Outlook. If you delete the profile and create a new Profile, it will prompt you to input all of login information for your account. Before you proceed, you need to select the Advanced options and input the correct options for incoming port (995) and outgoing port (465) with SSL selected. Click OK and go to the main screen. Need to input your login credentials and will allow you to test the connection before you close for any errors. Need to make sure incoming is and outgoing is Check the test option and exit the profile. Then log into Outlook 2016 and was back up and running.
