You can leave it alone! I've been perfectly happy with my AOL account. Now I have to change it?
No wonder you are experiencing delays and systems issues? You've given all of your users a 10/20/2020 deadline and now everyone is scrambling to make changes. I do not even understand what you are asking me to do? AOL has merely been convenient but I also have a gmail account so I think I'll just move everything to gmail.
As we all know, technology is continuing to change and improve. While the connection you have been using may still work and was once the best, a better, more secure option is available. Basic auth is an older authentication method. A more secure authentication method called OAuth2 is now available. To ensure your account remains secure, we are requiring all applications to support OAuth2. See here more info: https://bit.ly/AOLAppPassword
