Need to reactivate old account
Hi there. If an account is unused or dormant for 12 months, it is deactivated. More info here: https://help.aol.com/articles/does-my-aol-mail-account-get-deactivated-if-i-don-t-use-it-for-90-days You will not be able to reactivate it or re-create the same email address, however, you can always sign up for a new AOL account at mail.aol.com. I’m sorry this is not the response you hoped for!
