Emails don’t send out
I’ve been an AOL mail user for quite a long time, over 10 years! and I really love AOL. But when I try to write messages out and send them when using the app, my messages don’t send out and I receive a pop up message saying “Oops, this is embarrassing, something went wrong.” Then I’d have to send the whole message again or I have to type it up again which is annoying. I keep in touch with friends through my email and want to be sure my messages are sent but 90% of the time on my app it pops up that message. It works fine if I go on the website into my account on the computer but for some reason the app won’t cooperate all the time when using the app.
I figured I’d mention this to you because I feel it should be fixed so everyone has the chance to send emails through their phones without any problems. I’m not quite sure if anyone else has this issue but I know I’ve been having it since I’ve downloaded the app years ago.

Cuts off first letter of address and won’t send
I read that this problem has been commented on a year ago and it’s still a problem. I have the newest edition of this app. AOL was working well with no problem when used in my mail app on my Apple products, but now I’ve been advised you won’t support my doing this anymore. I’m very disappointed and will begin the process of changing over to another mail service at great inconvenience after many years using AOL.
I received a response from your team which seems to be your standard response to many of your dissatisfied customers. I did as directed and the first letter still gets cut off an email address resulting in it not being sent. As I read other criticisms, this isn’t a new issue. Why can’t you fix the problem? I’m surprised your advertisers are continuing to use your company. They must not be reading the reviews. Too bad you no longer allow us to use the Apple all-inclusive email program. AOL worked well in there. I’ve been notifying those on my address list to use my gmail address instead of this one.
Read the complaints and fix the problems! Deleting, rebooting and reinstalling doesn’t work. And to suggest going off WiFi and on to a data plan is asinine. The problem is not with your consumers, it’s with your faulty product. Hire someone who knows how to fix it.

Hi Irish, I wanted to follow-up with you and apologize for any miscommunication. Our engineers would like to learn more about your inability to send emails within the AOL app and if possible more details on your experience with the email address being cut off. We are unable to replicate this experience, can you please share with us what device you are on and its operating system? Can you let me know if by any chance the email you are trying to send is saved in your "Draft" folder and if the email address is being cut off there as well?
Lastly, we want you to know that you can continue using your AOL account in the Apple mail client, however, you need to follow these steps to ensure your account remains secure: https://help.aol.com/articles/allow-apps-that-use-less-secure-sign-in
Typical Failure of Something that worked for the user
When something works as well as AOL mail has for decades, it seems inevitable that it has to get changed, in this day and age, to make sure that if you are elderly, it won’t work easy any longer, and becomes virtually impossible to get it to work correctly with other programs. I did use it on my windows computer and my iPad. Now I am told that it won’t work any longer after Oct 20. Supposed instructions are given to make it continue operating with your present system, however, when u read the instructions it tells me that my older “windows live mail” will no longer work with the new system. So nothing on my older windows system computer will read AOL mail. They tell me that I can install an IOS app on my iPad and use that and I did try, however, while it works on its own, with plenty of junk commercials attached, I can no longer send attachments or articles from other programs, through AOL mail. Very few choices in using email, and I am too old and tired to try and learn any new system. Looks like I will have to rely on my one other email account and change the send to address from AOL to it. Good luck if you wish to use the “new” AOL email.
