Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

Acessing AOL web base email problems with internet explorer 8

I want to access www.aol.com as I used to be able to via explorer 7 in order to get my email but version 8 changes the typed address every time to My.screenname.aol.com.   Then I get the message service is temorarily unavailable.   It's not unavailable as there is no problem with Safari or Internet Explorer 7.
I have tried turning off suggested websites.  I can get to aol via Explorer 8 if I switch off auto protect in the security options of explorer 8 but it wouldn't be sensible to have this turned off all the time.
Thanks in advance for any solutions.

Caannot print Bank america statements using my AOL account


Have you tried forwarding them to a non-AOL email that is HTTP or web based? AOL may have security features the prevent certain documents from being printed or lifted from its interface. also try accessing your aol webmail from your browser instead of the AOL dashboard

Hi, I'm having a problem signing in to my YahooMail and Yahoo Messenger. When I try to log on to YahooMail using the Internet Explorer, the window appears that says "The page cannot be...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Yahoo has been experiencing a system wide problem. Many of Yahoo! Mail customers are experiencing the same problem you're having.

To assist Yahoo mail customers with this problem, AOL will transfer all of your contact information and future emails from your Yahoo account to your new AOL account for the next 30 days for free. (Until Yahoo can correct the problem). You won't miss any emails from your Yahoo account.. They will be automatically forwarded to your new AOL account.

Here are the instructions:

1) Go to AOL and set up a new AOL email account. (Click on this link) https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?seamless=novl&locale=us&offerId=newmail-en-us-v2&siteState=ver%3A4'rt%3ASTANDARD'at%3ASNS'ld%3Awebmail.aol.com'uv%3AAOL'lc%3Aen-us'mt%3AAOL'snt%3AScreenName'sid%3Af27fcb24-926a-4b22-ac39-ac0d19e1d3f4&authLev=0&sitedomain=sns.webmail.aol.com&lang=en

2) During the set up process you will be asked to provide a security question. Later, you'll need to answer the security question to set up the transfer, so don't forget the answer.

3) Once your new AOL account is set up, go to your AOL email page. Look in the upper right hand top corner for the word, SETTINGS and click on it.

4) (Next page) On the left hand side, look for the word, Accounts and click on it.

5) (Next Page) Look on the line beginning with, Transfer Accounts and locate the link that reads, AOL Easy Transfer and click on it.

6) (Next Page) Agree to the terms of service and click on, Get Started.

7) (Next Page) Under Copy from, enter your Yahoo email address and password.

8) Under Copy to, enter your new AOL email address and password.

9) (Next Page) Carefully Read, and select the options you need. (Click, Continue)

10) (Next Page) Click, Go to AOL Mail.

11) (Next Page) Enter the answer to your security question you created when you set up your new AOL email account. (Click, Continue)

12) (Next Page) Look at the top Left hand corner and click on, MAIL.

That's it. (Although AOL says that it may take up to 24 hours to complete the process - it usually only takes about 30 minutes.) After you receive your confirmation email, Click on your Contacts in your AOL account. When you see your Contacts from your Yahoo account there, the transfer has completed.

EMAIL COMES IN NOT BOLD


You wont actually have any control over that one. Since you are having problems with a web-based email or a webmail, all the design and coding for that specific site is only handled by your mail provider and that is AOL. Since you are having problems with this kind of error what you could do is notify AOL of the problem that you are getting so that they could check it out and rectify the issue on their server.

Internet explorer goes wild


AOL tends to make systems act possessed. My first best advise is to switch to a different email protocol, download Mozilla Firefox, and use it exclusively. I hate AOL AND IE.
