HOW DO I retrieve my email from in box I had on aol ?


While you have the AOL account, you need to send the emails to another email address, outside AOL. Try Outlook.com which is free to set up an account.

If you have left AOL, they will have deleted the account and the inbox and everything in it will have been deleted.

AOL Information

AOL has a compression feature built into the browser that compresses all the graphics you view on a web site. The following info will assist you in turning off this feature. Doing so will allow you to download graphics off of this site that are uncompressed. You will also find your viewing pleasure enhanced by the fact that you will hopefully be able to see the graphics as intended by the designer.

AOL's default in Internet Explorer for Web Graphics is "Compressed". That can be changed by going in "My AOL" and then Preferences. Go to WWW, which will bring up the Internet Explorer preferences. Click on the tab for "Web Graphics" and then click to remove the Check Mark on "Use Compressed Graphics"

It does help. You may also run Netscape Navigator while logged on to AOL and it gives a good presentation of web sites.

Someone is using my ip address


There are a couple of very valid ways that the same IP addresses might appear to be in use by several different computers. If the voting software using only your IP address to check for voting abuse, then it's not doing as good a job as it should be.


Two scenarios come to mind immediately: routers and bad IP detection.
As I've discussed before, a router allows several computers to share a single internet connection. One side effect of doing so is that all the computers that are sharing that connection appear on the internet as having the same IP address. The internet IP address actually belongs to the router, and it manages the routing the appropriate data to and from the appropriate computer behind it.
If you're in a home or small business that uses a router to share an internet connection, then any of the other computers could have voted and appeared as having come from the same IP address your computer would.
If you're connecting from a larger facility, say a school or corporation, the same issue can arise. Many facilities connect their internal network to the internet through a set of routers. A company of several thousand might appear as only a handful of IP addresses on the internet. If someone else within the company voted, it's quite possible that you might appear as the same IP address when you attempt to vote later.
"Using just the IP address to counter voter fraud and other types of abuse is common because it's easy." And then there's AOL.
When last I checked, I believe AOL puts all of its subscribers behind the equivalent of a collection of routers. Therefore when you as an AOL user connect to a web site you may be using the same IP address as some other AOL subscriber who came before you.


There's another problem that could be at play here as well.
If you're behind a router, your IP address is an IP address on your local network, not the internet. Most consumer routers use the 192.168.1.x range. In fact, most will start assigning IP addresses at 192.168.1.1, then 192.168.1.2, then 3 and so on.
As a result there are thousands of machines out there at IP address 192.168.1.1 on their local network.
If the voting abuse software attempts to use the IP address of the machine rather than the IP address of the machine's connection to the web site, then it'll just be wrong. The first person with an IP of 192.168.1.1 might be able to vote, but all that follow would be seen as coming from the same address.
It's very unlikely, but it is one additional way that the voting abuse detection scheme might fail.


Using just the IP address to counter voter fraud and other types of abuse is common because it's easy. As you can see, that often has the unintended side-effect of blocking more than just a single abuser. Unfortunately blocking an individual computer for these types of accesses is difficult - at least doing so in a way that isn't trivial to circumvent is difficult. The most common alternate approach is to require registration and login to vote, which naturally reduces the number of voters as people are reluctant to jump through the additional hoops.

Having trouble with password i am a new aim user every time i put password in says invalid help


If your password doesn't work
There are several reasons why your password might not work:
  • The password you entered isn't capitalized correctly. AIM passwords are case-sensitive, so if your password is "Password," entering "password" (note the lowercase "p") won't work.
  • (For AOL subscribers only) You've recently changed your AOL password and are trying to use your new password with the AIM service. Even if your AOL screen name is also your AIM screen name, changing the password for one doesn't affect the other.
You can have your password sent to your e-mail address by submitting your screen name at the following Web page: http://www.aol.com/aim/password.adp.

Logout from his account and then log into yours. You are going to have to do this as soon as possible. If the problem persists, try using another web browser, such as Google Chrome.

you need to clear the browser's cache
you did not specify your browser so i will assume this tips will involve your browser.
to do that

How do I clear cache using Netscape? Question : Answer : help_a.gif Cache files, or Temporary Internet Files in Microsoft Windows 95 or higher, are copies of files sent to your web browser and stored on your computer so that when you access a web site (such as PayPal) at a later date, it will load much faster. However, sometimes cache and temporary Internet files can cause problems in viewing your current information on the PayPal web site.

To set the size of the memory cache or clear it in Windows or Unix, follow these steps:

  1. From the Edit menu, click Preferences.
  2. Open the Advanced category on the left hand side of the screen and click on Cache. You should see an option to clear your disk and memory cache. It is recommended you clear both caches.
  3. Click Clear Memory Cache.

You may also need to locate the folder on your hard drive named Cookies or Magic Cookies and delete all the cookies that are stored there.
How do I clear the cache using AOL with a Mac? Question : Answer : help_a.gif Cache files, or Temporary Internet Files in Microsoft Windows 95 of higher, are files sent to your web browser and stored on your computer so that when you access a web site (such as PayPal) at a later date, it will load much faster. However, sometimes cache and temporary Internet files can cause problems in viewing your current information on the PayPal web site.

If you experience difficulty viewing a web page, your computer's cache file may be corrupted. Additionally, if you do not manually (or automatically) set your cache files to be deleted periodically, you may experience delays in loading and closing out of certain web pages.

To improve your computer's performance accessing the web, and specifically while visiting PayPal, regularly clear your cache file.

To clear the cache with AOL on a Apple Macintosh, follow these steps:

info_sm.gif Here's How: pixel.gif
  1. Click My AOL at the top of your browser.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Click the WWW icon on the left hand side.
  4. On the right hand side, click Empty Cache Now.

Cant find my routers Gateway Site..?


First you must make sure that the Ip address 192.168.2.1 is your routers ip address.

Click on Start, Run, type cmd, then click OK. Type ipconfig /all and hit the enter key. You are looking for the Default Gateway address. Use that address in your web browser. When you set up your static Ip address on your computer, use the first three numbers of your default gateway's address, then for the fourth number, add one. For example. If your default gateway address is 192.168.2.1, then your static ip address should be 192.168.2.2.

Try this and let me know what happens.

Have you tried resetting the router back to factory settings using the small hole in the rear? This will default it back as it was when you first got it.After doing this you would have to put all your original settings back into it though.
