This should help you.
If you have an account through America Online (AOL), you don't need to use AOL's software to check it anymore. America Online Inc. on Wednesday announced its new Open Mail Access feature, which enables Mac and PC users to check their AOL mail using third-party applications that support the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) protocol. Dubbed Open Mail Access, the feature is available now for no additional charge to all AOL users running Windows or Mac OS. Instructions for configuring popular clients, including Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Entourage, and others can be reached on the AOL service by typing the keywords “open mail access.”

Anyone tried this yet? When I read about it last week it wasn't clear to me whether this is giving you access to the actual email as sent, or if they're converting from some kind of AOL format before serving it up. Using a real email program with an AOL account would solve certain problems, like the inability to deal with multiple attachments...
