I don't know how recently I used it, but AOL 5.0 still worked with any account created after a certain time (sometime in the mid 2000s). I can't log in anymore.

Can anyone confirm whether or not AOL has completely dropped support for their old client?

Oh god I am so ashamed to be me right now.

I was using the wrong username.

*facepalm*

ETA: So they've shut down the proxy service that allowed web browsing from AOL. No big deal; I was just curious to see if the client still worked.

ETA 2: No, I'm really just an idiot. I want to forget this thread ever happened.

So, which e-mail client would you use to check your Aol e-mail account with Mac OS 9 ?
