    Hello William,

    In case the repair will not work you may try repairing it using the AOL disc. if you have that disc sent to you by aol provider just insert and run it. :)

    Is AOL your service provider? The AOL Icon in the system tray has options to repair your connection called One Click Fix should you encounter connectivity issues with their service.

Can,t opem my e-mail page

Which email account ?
If you currently have an e-mail address or you're thinking about getting one, you need to know how to access your account to check your messages.

Open a new browser and go to your e-mail provider's website.
To ensure that you navigate to the proper site, type your e-mail provider's URL (or website address) into the address bar at the top of the page.

Locate the "Mail" icon on the homepage.
Click on that mail icon and you will be directed to the appropriate sign-in page to access your e-mail inbox.

Provide your correct login details.
You will need to type your username/ID and password into the appropriate boxes and click the button that says "Sign In."

Click on the link that says "Inbox."
Once you click on the inbox link, you will have access to all of your messages, both old and new e-mails.

The unread mail is usually in bold, which makes it easier to identify your new messages.
Simply click on the subject of that e-mail to read your message.

I use AOL on my Mac. Can not change the font size on outgoing mail. How do I fix this?

LOL, no wonder. Are they still around? They've been bought and sold so much that I thought they were completely stripped.

Get into your AOL email and look for a help option somewhere while in the email client.

New Computer: When I send an email a box comes up where I am asked whether I automtically wish to add new recipients to my contacts. I made the mistake and clicked on OK. Now all my contacts are...

I'm assuming that you are using AOL?

Go to your mail box and click on "settings" in the upper righthand corner.

In the left side margin click on "compose". Scroll down to "sending" and uncheck the box next to "Automatically add email addresses to Contacts"

Be _sure_ to click "save"

Then go back to your mail box and click on "contacts" in the left side margin, then delete or edit the contacts as needed.

If you are using a different email provider, the process will be similar.

    I have had an account with AOL for years without a problem but when I click on my desktop icon it will not open. What has happened and how do I fix it?

    Hi there,

    AOL shortcut was created on your desktop. Due to some technical issues, the configuration might have changed. Do not worry. I will help you to re-create another shortcut of AOL on your desktop for one time click and work,
    When the AOL software is installed, a shortcut is created on your Windows desktop, allowing you to quickly and easily sign on. If your desktop icon is missing, or if it points to a version of the software other than the one you would like, follow these instructions.

    To create an AOL icon on your desktop

    1. On the Start menu, select Programs, then click Windows Explorer (on Windows XP, select All Programs, Accessories, then click Windows Explorer).
    2. Browse to the folder that has your AOL software (e.g., C:\Program Files A File is an electronic document which can be text, pictures, sounds, videos or whole programs. Reminder: Never download files from someone you don't know. Files may contain dangerous Trojan Horse programs that may capture your AOL password, severely damage your computer, or contain objectionable graphics. To report a violation in an attached file, please forward the e-mail to screen name TOSReports.\America Online 9.0).
    3. Click the file waol.exe once to select it.
    4. On the File menu, click Create Shortcut.
    5. Drag the new shortcut icon (Shortcut to waol.exe) to your Windows desktop.


    You can rename your shortcut to something more meaningful to you. Simply press F2 on your keyboard while the shortcut is selected, type a new name, then press ENTER.
    To delete a shortcut, drag it to the Recycle Bin. Your AOL software will still be on your computer.

    That should work. For further reference, click the link;

    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.
