  1. Unable to Access AOL Emails via Outlook 2016 and 2019 on Multiple PCs Since April 21, 2021

    I have been unable to access AOL via Microsoft Outlook 2016 and 2019 using IMAP on multiple PCs since 4 p.m. EDT on April 21, 2021. All suggested remedies have been tried, and all have failed. The error code returned is consistently 0x800CCC0E - "contact your server administrator", "cannot synchronize subscribed folders for AOL". If AOL is unwilling or unable to fix this problem, please at least restore the Email Forwarding function to allow emails to be accessed by Outlook through other email accounts. Thank you.

  3. Email access via IMAP not working

    In the last 24 hours, one of my three verizon.net email addresses (the one I'm logged in with) has stopped working in the Outlook and Gmail apps using imap.aol.com as the incoming server. Both apps say they can't validate my email address and password. I've tried changing my password and even deleting the account from Gmail and now can't add it back. My other two verizon.net email accounts work fine. What's going on with this one account.

  6. Apple Mail won't connect via POP/SMTP to my Verizon/AOL account

    I have not been able to connect via POP/SMTP using Apple Mail (IOS or MacOS) since last Monday 7/12/21 around 7PM. This is my landkwat@verizon.net account that I've had for over 20 years, and my Verizon/AOL setup has worked fine ever since Verizon dumped their own email system. The AOL app (iOS) and web client work fine, but ALL my Mac/iPhone email is organized in Apple Mail so I need it to work. I have checked and re-checked all my settings (SSL on, correct ports, uses password for both receive/send, etc.), even deleted my AOL account in Apple Mail and…

  9. cannot receive or send mail on Mac laptop or iPhone but aol website user/password works

    As of yesterday night, no AOL mail has been received on my laptop (Mac) or iPhone. Also, outgoing mail sits in outbox. The server doesn't validate the password or times out. I can log into mail.aol.com with same user and password to see the mail and nothing has changed on my laptop or phone. This has happened in the past, maybe for a day or two and then all of a sudden, it starts working again, and I have done nothing on my end to fix it.

  11. Aol Spam Mail

    I have been trying for months to get AOL to help with spam messages from e-mails that don't even exist. Aol used to be so good at helping with this but today you don't even care. I used to delete the 200 emails per day I had in span, now I am going to let them build up and take as much storage as a few thousand will make. As a almost 30 year PAID subscriber to AOL. I can imagine how many of these will build up in the next few years. Even when I try to block the…

  12. Emails- receiving, sending

    My idea is not having 2 months of my emails disappear. Just lost May/June, earlier this year, same thing happened. Just so you know - not good for anybody, you or me.

  14. This verification thing stinks!

    I sign in under my "L" email, you ask me to "verify" my email name starting with "R" I have to sign out of my "L" email, I go to my "R" name and get the code, then the verification thingy is GONE! WhaT a royal pain!

    I think you need to come up with a MUCH BETTER SYTSTEM!

  15. Unable to access AOL (Verizon) email on two different apps: Postbox and K-9 mail, so it is on YOUR END. Please fix!!

    Can't send OR receive Verizon email for 18 hours in either my PC app (Postbox) or my phone app (K-9) mail. This usually goes away in a few hours, but now I am totally shut out. FIX IT PLEASE!

  17. Stopping Senders on AOL

    It's not my idea. I have listed on Block Unwanted Mail, Block Senders and Filter Settings Senders from which I do not want to receive mail but I continue to receive mail continually from the listed Sender.

    Why have all the alleged Stop avenues to block mail if they do nothing?

  18. Stop going through people's mail

    You go through my mail, hold one particular email, you know what it is(and you have held others) and I know what it is, I am forwarding it to someone that will stop this, you have no business in my mail, I see it anyway, so you're wasting your darn time. So just knock it off,
