updated password with aol account and macbook pro won't recognise the new password

I updated my aol password on the aol site and now my macbook pro won't recognise the new password to access my aol email account on Mail.  I have tried deleting the account and starting again but it won't let me recreate the account

Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

What happens when you try to add the account back?


Try Mail/Preferences/Accounts /Account Information. Select an account, then go to Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP). From the drop down menu select Edit SMPT server list. See if the account is listed there. If so, delete the SMTP server for the account. Try to add the Mail account again.
