I can access my new mail in outlook, but my sent mail & contacts remained on
my aol account which now shows zero new messages. Can't I set it up so that
I can access my email through either outlook on AOL?

Export the AOL contacts to a file you can import to Outlook's Contacts
folder. Since AOL access by Outlook is via IMAP, all the mail folders on
the AOL server will be visible in Outlook.

Well, neither POP, IMAP, nor SMTP protocols can do anything with contacts,
so keeping two PCs' contacts in sync can be a little work, but some help can
be found here: http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/sync.asp . And the normal
IMAP configuration for accessing AOL from Outlook will allow two PCs to see
the same data. You might have to create a rule that moves a copy of
outgoing messages to the IMAP's Sent Items folder, but that's about it.

Is "AOL", in your mind, a client you run on your PC or is it a mail service,
providing a mailbox for you to access with whatever client you choose? I
don't use AOL, so you'll hve to give more detail.

Then I've told you how already. Create an IMAP account and configure it to
reference your AOL mailbox.
