When Verizon converted to AOL, the 'helper' misunderstood and made my entire name my address and said that he could not change it back. Very inconvenient.
I'd like to change my email address to something else.
Unfortunately, you can’t change or modify your username once it’s been created. If you want a different username, you’ll need to create a new account.
Compose.... where is the paper clip...which used to allow
one to post an image with the text ?
I think aol mail has gone downhill for two years...it has
become harder and harder to use.
In order to compose an email with image, please make sure to click on “Insert” button which is located near “Attach” icon.
"I ACCEPT" is bs. I have accepted and accepted and accepted. still pops up. Knock it off!
It sounds like you’ve accepted our updates already. The best way to check to is to log in from a desktop computer to http://mail.aol.com. If you receive a pop-up message asking you to review and accept, that means you haven’t accepted yet. If you are taken to your inbox directly, then you likely already accepted and are good to go.

I am very disappointed that My Portfolio will be taken away from us in January. It's been coming in as spam but I really need this service.
I would like AOL to continue with My Portfolio,

I have been unable to receive email on my iPhone first thing in the morning without signing into my account on my computer first. This is very frustrating and inconvenient, especially if I need to receive important emails before I am able to get to my computer. I must say, AOL is making it more and more difficult to want to stay with your service. Granted, I am a free user and was forced to your service when Verizon left my area. I haven't made the leap to another service changing my email address I have had for over 10 years, but that day is soon coming if AOL doesn't improve services for all, free or paid. Thanks so much for looking into this ongoing problem.

In case there are multiple failed attempts, to log into the IMAP/POP server in a short amount of time, the login will be temporarily blocked for security reasons. In order to unblock it, go to mail.aol.com from your preferred browser and sign in, then wait 30 seconds and check if your email applications are able to connect. We recommend checking all of your mail applications (PC and mobile devices) and making sure they have the correct password to login into your email account.
Can't figure out how to do this. Nothing is obvious

You sent me an E-mail stating that "On October 10, 2018 at 2:42 AM, we noticed an attempt to sign in to your AOL account " and I was about to reply that it was not me, since I was asleep at 2:42 AM, then realized you might be talking about Pacific Time instead of Eastern Time. Make sure to always note the time zone when you send time specific E-mails like that. Now I am unsure whether or not it was me.

On IOS I can only 'Fetch' new data and not have it 'Pushed' to my iPhone. I need email instantly and not every 15 minutes as the settings only allow. Other than this, how can I redirect my mail to iCloud where I can have it pushed to me?
The IOS environment supports 2 kinds of email notifications – Push and Fetch. After a recent update, AOL Mail was designed to work with Fetch, which will check for new emails at regular time intervals. You can decide how frequently the app checks.
Can't sign out please assist - I am clicking on the sign out button it is not working. Also I am repeatedly getting emails allegedly from Oath threatening to suspend my account unless I confirm my details. They do not have the little blue symbol on between the senders name and the subject that is supposed to confirm they are from aol so I am deleting them. Please advise if there is a genuine issue.

Incorrect or invalid e-mail addresses mailed out are not returned as rejected. Why ?
Thank you for reaching out. If a recipient address is misspelled and you did not receive a bounce back message, it is possible that a mailbox exists for that email address, or that the email was accepted and queued by the recipient domain.
If we all leave the spam un=deleted it will accumulate and eat server memory. This will eventually have economic impact on AOL and they might take action against the spammers instead of allowing it to arrive in our folders where our children can see the **** and other BS.
I think its possible that aol benefits from spam volume....
You can manually empty your Spam folder, by selecting all emails and click Delete or hovering over the folder and clicking the Bin icon.
- Don't see your idea?
