Have you unwittingly changed one of the settings regarding SMTP or other server settings on your Mail client, this would prevent you from sending mail.

If you can still recieve mail then this means that only the outgoing server is affected, so again check your SMTP configuration or phone AOL.

If this is on another computer make sure your caps lock is off. (you seem to not have it on when you typed this). Sometimes changing passwords may take a few minutes to take effect. Also try typing your password into notepad to make sure that all the keys are working properly.

How to transport aol favorites to gmail


I presume that you mean contacts export from AOL, to Gmail, correct?

I am not on AOL any longer, so I cannot find out if they have an export function.

Gmail, however does have an IMPORT function.

Log in to your gmail account.
>>Top right, several to the left select settings
>> 2nd tab, accounts and imports..
What you need is the first option...

Also are you planning to use the online mailbox of Gmail, or a local client, like Outlook, Windows Mail, or Incredimail>>>>? If so you must turn on POP access, or you will not be able to connect... This is the 5th tab of the page you were last on (listed above, in settings).

Lastly if you are using a local client, often you cannot use the GMAIL outgoing mail server. Because of spam, internet service providers commonly require all mail going out to go through THEIR server....

Not a problem, if you use inline mailbox of gmail. because you are sending from there....

You don't need to post your e-mail!! go to aol.com or your e-mail provider's website and sign in there. BE CAREFUL GIVING OUT YOUR E-MAIL!

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.

They should be in your address book as always. It shouldn't have changed. Try to write an email and see if your address book icon shows up on the right sige of the email. You can also go to the toolbar at the top and under mail it will have address book. If this isn't what you're looking for let me know. I've had AOL since they were a baby. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet. Add a comment explaining your problem a little further and I'll be more than happy to help you out. You reached the right guy for AOL problems. Thanks. Let me know how it goes and if you need more help.
