  2. On September 1, server changes are now preventing imap connections

    On September 1, 2022, server changes are now preventing imap connections to outlook, at least on my windows 7 computer and any type of connection on my kindle fire even with aol generated passwords. Impossible to share issues with tech support even if I pay for support. Are the days of AOL coming to an end?

  5. why is my account labeled suspicious when I have been a member for 25+ years?

    After 25 + years why do I have to verify my identity? Is AOL becoming not a viable search engine. If this isn't resolved soon I will stop using AOL. NEED AN ANSWER!

  8. Possible Spam

    I am getting AOL email saying AOL is updating it's mailbox and if I don't do certain things I may lose the email in my mailbox. Is this true, or is it spam? I tried to ask this question in other ways, and I didn't find any. It is hard to find a way to ask questions on AOL.

  13. "New" AOL is not working for me. Why fix what was not broken. The new version is so bad I may leave AOL. Can I return toforme AOL mail?

    Allow members to decide which AOL MAIL they want. The new one is dreadful. Considering a new site. I have been on AOL since 1998. Worked fine. This is a night mare. May I ask what genius created this mess?

  18. CLEARLY state where and how we should forward very questionable phishing expeditions.

    Trying to get a fast email address to forward suspicious phishing emails is impossible. AOL seems to do everything so that it doesn't know about what's happening to real customers. PLEASE GIVE US AN UP_FRONT ADDRESS WHERE WE CAN FORWARD SUSPICIOUS EMAILS.
