I had this same problem with using my email account on the iPhone 4. I could receive email but it would give me " the server did not allow relaying" message. What I had forgotten was that my server is actually provided by netscape but was merged with aol years back, I don't know exactly how that happened but this is what I did to work around it:

First, I deleted the aol email account from my phone.

Then, I logged into my email account through my computer. I went to the settings tab> IMAP and POP

There I found the IMAP set up information. (Keep this handy)

On my iPhone: Settings> Mail,Contacts,Calendars> Add Account> Other> Add Mail Account

The user name, address, and password I entered was the same that I use to log in through my computer.

To complete the set up I used the IMAP set up information for incoming and outgoing mail servers. The set up took about 5 minutes. It worked with and without WiFi. I am using an iPhone 4 with the updated iOS5.

I hope this helps.
