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?

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.
