It's an AOL browser error. You can try re-installing it. AOL do "too" frequent updates which most of the time breaks something.

In AOL, the organize gets corrupted and causes problems like this. The Organize folder hols all your user mail, inbox,sent items ETC. You can copy the organize folder from the All Users,AOL folder in Documents and settings and save it to a different location. then delete the original one in All users,AOL. Then restart AOL and it will create a new organize folder. The only things with this is that your saved mail would not be available unless you re-import it.

If You do not feel comfortable doing this, call AOL support @ 800.827.3338

The Quick Contacts button on the left will lead you to "Open Full Contacts". If none are listed, you need to export them from AIM or wherever they currently reside, as a CSV, TXT or LDIF file, then Import using the Tools button within AOL Mail.

Forgot my passord and can't seem to get it work need to re-set my aol password


If you can't remember your AOL® Password, you can easily create a new one by verifying information about your AOL® membership. Only authorized users can change passwords. You can use your AOL® screen name and password on the AIM® service as well. You no longer need a separate password to sign in to AIM®. You can also change the password for your AOL screen name when you are on AIM. If you do so, you'll need to use your new password to sign on to the AOL® service.

How Do I Reset My Password? If you can't sign on to the AOL® software because you don't remember your password, you can reset your password from the sign on screen. This procedure will work only if you are using AOL® Desktop™ for Mac®, AOL® 8.0 Plus and higher, only for those screen names that show up on the sign on screen, or if you connect with a dial-up modem.
To create a new password by using your AOL® software:
1. On the sign on screen, select the screen name whose password you wish to reset, and then click the Forgot Password? link. The software will dial out to connect to the Online Password Reset facility.
2. In the Word in Image: box, type the letters and numbers that are displayed in the image, and then click Next.
3. In the Your Answer: box, type the answer for your Account Security Question (ASQ) or provide other information required to confirm authorization, and then click Next.
4. Type your new password in both the boxes, and then click OK.
5. Click OK to close the confirmation window.

AOL e-Mail error reads: An error occured while loading a file. AOL will attempt to restore the file. My New, Old, Send shows only Icons with no text or seder information. Can not download, send reply...


1) Reinstall the AOL software, available here

2) If that doesn't help, you need to check your hard drive for errors:

Close any open programs.
Open My Computer, right click on your hard drive (probably C:)
Click Properties. Choose Tools, then Error Check, Check now. Select both checkboxes and press Start.

The computer may prompt you to reboot, let it do that.

This should resolve the issue.

I have aol and it wont me access my new mail. I am able to send out mail. Apon opening my new mail it reads error accurred please try again later. I have tried logging off and signing back on still no...


AOL has always been problematic since 1991, the best way for you to resolve your issue is to call AOL. I personally don’t understand why people still use AOL when you have DSL or Cable since DSL and Cable are the internet service then you pay on top of that to use AOL? It just seems like a great waste of money and trouble to me, for AOL is nearly impossible to get off your computer once it has been installed.
