Allow 3rd party email clients
You won't allow sending from Thunderbird or Apple Mail. The reason is security. It's obvious you want us to read ads or track us or something to do with your bottom line.
If security were the true reason, then everyone would disallow 3rd party email clients from sending email.
If you don't allow 3rd party email to handle my account, I will close it and say goodbye to AOL altogether.
I never chose to sign up with AOL; verizon was taken over by AOL, and I wanted to try to keep that account, but it is no longer practical, unless you allow 3rd party email clients to send from.
Don't tell me I can get the password from the website and put that im my email client, because that has to be done EVERY time I send an email via verizon/AOL via Thunderbird or Apple Mail. So that's a lie as well.
