        I am having "experiencing technical difficulties" messages and can not save the note as a draft either. Frequency is multiple times per week over the past 2 months. (2.10.19)

        I am having trouble communicating with friends. This is especially true of friends in Italy (but not limited, locala as well). Here is an example:
        MAILER-DAEMON (MAILER-DAEMON@yahoo.com)
        To:you Details
        Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

        <paolodabala@me.com>:
        Unable to deliver message after multiple retries, giving up.

        --- Below this line is a copy of the message.

        I am receiving this message at random times over the past few weeks: "There was a problem sending the message. Please try again later."

        I receive the exact same message when I attempt to SAVE the message so that I may "try again later, thus I cannot SEND or SAVE it.

        AOL then seems to delete all my messages but I find they have been moved to Trash and are all marked as unopened.

        I do not know when "later" is. Any comment on why this occurs from out of the blue?, and when I can expect to see the "problem" resolved?

        Unable to send/receive e-mail in Outlook. Continues to ask for my password, I have a send/receive error, "The connection to the server was interrupted" so I am unable to send or receive AOL mail with Outlook. I verified all settings are correct. I restarted Outlook and I have the continuing inability to use AOL Mail with Outlook. This is a daily problem. Some days after many attempts (and a lot of wasted time), I can get Outlook to send/receive mail. Some days (like today) the AOL servers are non-existent. More often than not, I waste a lot of time with AOL Mail. What is the fix?

        Recently I receive this message when trying to send email via aol:

        I have been getting this message more often lately. Today I wrote a lengthy email and could not send it. It is in my drafts folder but the system won't let me access it. What is going on with aol???

        go ahead flag my comment as inappropriate. What's inappropriate is your lack of ability to keep your system running!!

        So no one is working on this problem. As a Realtor, I depend on my emails to be able to be sent or saved. This really is becoming too annoying and maybe it's time to give up my AOL account after all these 20 years......

        Allow bulk emails of a personal matter. I occasionally send them out to friends to keep them updated on deaths or important matter. They number more than 100. Please find a way to allow this. It is not spam.

        We have a group email for about 250 members in my high school graduating class. I am receiving everyone’s comments but am unable to send any myself. Came out to see what the problem might be and it looks like we’re being limited as to the number of recepients we can have on one email? I’m being told there are problems and to try again later. So bummed!!!

        Tech difficulties has gotten so bad that I' d have given up on AOL mail were it not for the nuisance of updating so many places where I have listed it as my email address, But if it continues so it ' ll leave me no choice but to drop AOL which, by the way I have been using since 1999 when it was tops. Unfortunately and incomprehensibly AOL mail now has gotten so bad. with these constant repetead failures.(one that drives me batty is that if I hit the "go back arrow" it disconnects me) that you risk losing whatever customer base remains. People, wake up !
        P.S. There are other failures too, for intance I can no longer add new folders to the account.

        I was hacked by someone using my email. They would send me emails from my own email address. I blocked those emails. Now I can't send out emails. They also were able to place emails throughout my catagorized saved email list. So its obvious they had complete access.

        For years I have been sending a group Email to about 120 addresses with no problem. Within the last month I am getting an error message and in order to send I have to divide the group into three groups and send three separate Emails. This is not the service AOL has been providing in the past before having to pay AOL.
