Create a new account in Mozilla Suite or Thunderbird and choose IMAP as your server type. Then, use the following information to complete the fields:

Incoming server (IMAP) imap.aol.com
Username Your screen name
Outgoing Server (SMTP) smtp.aol.com
Port 587
Name Whatever you wish

You will be asked for the password when you connect for the first time.

You cannot manually add messages to the Inbox or Sent Items folders. Messages will be added to those folders after messages has been sent and received by the AOL server. Use Local Folders if you want to store sent mail, email drafts, and templates. You can configure this under the account settings by selecting "Copies & Folders" under Account Settings.
