I also did the 2 Step Verification. Sure enough, I had problems getting my emails to synch on 3 devices: my iPhone, my NOOK and my MacBook Pro!
1 Possible Solution: Please have AOL Programmers include a STATEMENT in the 2 Step Verification directions ----that 2 Step Verification should NOT be used for anyone with more than 1 device, please!
Innocently, people know about 2 Step Verification for many other applications, browsers, etc ...and they and I believed we were ADDING SAFETY via AOL's 2 Step Verification! We are mainly people with 2-3 devices. TY!
You can use the 2 Step Verification with multiple devices, but you will have to create an application password for each one. In order to create an application password, please follow the steps here: https://help.aol.com/articles/Create-and-manage-app-password
