I have used AOL for many years and I have recently found a problem with their email which often is sent with various (mostly TOTV) duplications in incoming emails. I contacted them only to be told that they are presently in a transitional period and hope this will be corrected soon.

I never received your aol error message, however, I would be very very cautious in opening that URL in the email you recd as you can obviously see that the last word in the link is "spam." I would send that email directly to your SPAM folder. One must be sooo careful these days for all of the cyber hackers out there.

I've been TRYING to send replies on here and all of a sudden AOL says "OOPS" then changes screen back. Problem is that it locks up and what I'd previously input is gone. I have to shut down and start over. Good ol AOL.

Default MY AOL PROBLEMS SOLVED...Update the aol software

I was having aol problems with freezing and not able to bring up URL's. I did an aol upgrade and it seemed to fix the glitches and it's working fine now.
