Transfer AOL email,address and favorites out of AOL's software.
This handy commercial tool was found when it was necessary to move AOL mail out of the AOL program for a client.It exports a user's email, sent items, favorites and address book directly into Outlook for any version of AOL up to 9.0 (which AOL does not allow you to do).It even works if the client has canceled their AOL subscription (though it's better if they haven't).
The program is ePreserver - Convert AOL to Outlook. Please note this is a $25 program, but for our needs it fit perfectly and does what it says on the tin. Of course, from Outlook you can then move to a proper email client like Thunderbird! Accessing the AOL Mail System using IMAP & Authenticated SMTP - An Unofficial Guide is particularly useful also.
