Note about security

This information collected by eNetBot is held securely (encrypted) on YOUR PC and is sent ONLY to AOL while authenticating your outgoing mail with the AOL server. [Note: Outgoing mail cannot be sent if the screen names you plan to use in the email client(s) are not entered here too]

The AOL password provided by you will NOT be used by eNetBot for any other purpose than to authenticate your outgoing mail with AOL.

That is all you need to do with eNetBot to read and write your AOL mail.
