    In Firefox after receiving this message if i click the bookmark for AOL it will eventually sign in, with Edge this always happens. Tried starting Firefox with addons disabled in safe mode but goes directly to page shown in Firefox image posted.

    Internet Explorer never even loads AOL. Tried googling to find out any issues with AOL but no help there.

    Not sure what else to try everything else i do on my browsers are fine plus any other e-mail accounts.
    No new software was added recently and all windows updates have been done recently.

    Any help is much appreciated !

    :)
     

  2. Outlook trouble in Windows 10 handling AOL email

    Hi Dave,

    • Are you referring to Windows 10 Mail App?
    • If yes, then is that an additional account?

    If your AOL is an additional account in Windows 10 Mail App, then I suggest you to remove the account and reconfigure it and check the behavior. And if your AOL is primary a account, please get back to us for further assistance.

    I suggest you to try the steps provided in the link below and check.

    Thank you

    AOL mail not working with Windows 10 mail ?

    Hello tynaskos, I’m Virginia an independent advisor here.

    I’ve seen that error on accounts which have two-factor/step authentication where the user requires an app specific password which is entered in place of the account password.

    Does the AOL account use this security feature?

    If not then check the usual ‘suspects’: username & password, whether the account uses SSL & whether the port numbers are set correctly.

    AOL Mail IMAP Settings

    The IMAP settings for AOL mail are as follows:

    AOL Mail IMAP server address: imap.aol.com

    AOL Mail IMAP user name: Your full AOL Mail email address. For AOL email, this is your AOL screen name plus "@aol.com," such as "*** Email address is removed for privacy ***" (or @love.com, @games.com

    AOL Mail IMAP password: Your AOL Mail password

    AOL Mail IMAP port: 993

    AOL Mail IMAP TLS/SSL required: yes

    Enter these SMTP settings to send outgoing email through to your AOL Mail account from any email program.

    Incoming Mail Server: imap.aol.com

    SMTP Outgoing Server Address: smtp.aol.com. Set the port to 587

    SMTP Username: "*** Email address is removed for privacy ***" (or @love.com, @games.com or @verizon.net)

    SMTP password. The password you use to log in to AOL Mail

  4. Trouble signing into AOL Mail

    AOL will soon be free.

    That reminds me of the time I told AOL tech support exactly what was wrong with AOL 9.0 (to be precise, the processes that allowed AOL to run operated like malware, and automatically restarted themselves). They didn't speak for like five minutes, and then said "thanks for reporting the problem...until then, please run AOL Spyware Protection to eliminate pesky start up services" *Wtf :wtf:. Oh yeah and according to my Mom, the reasons to run AOL are:
    • Parental controls (useless and easily bypassable).
    • Easiest E-mail interface (I can't argue with an opinion).
    • Security (If they aren't unneccessary, they are easily replaced by better performing freeware).
