AOL Email Addresses

AOL have just recently updated and changed their email server and port settings. I have successfully changed them for my desktop pc etc., but my aol.com email address will no longer work in my car. The IDrive display shows my email address but then shows below it 'unknown error'.
My Hotmail account displays everything as it should in the IDrive.

I have attempted to update the port settings in my Connected Drive account via the Connected Drive portal but just get an 'Error' message.

Has anyone who still uses an AOL email account managed to successfully update the settings please ?

I'm delighted to report that BMW ConnectedDrive Support here in the UK have just sent me the revised settings that I need to use and all is now working again perfectly.
Well done BMW UK.
