We have tried pinging AOL website using our server and the website returned the above results. If aol.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access AOL - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

The "Today on AOL" section has been blank for several days now when I go to the mail page. It appears that way on both of our desktop computers. Clicking the link for "Today on AOL" changes nothing.

Change your password.
This resets something and restores your contact list, a nice visual clue. That AOL hasn't acknowledged anything about this issue is of some concern. You can't change back to your old password, something of an inconvenience. Sigh.

Here in Ohio, same problems as most, on Win 7-64 using Explorer, Chrome, 3 different computers, 2 offices. Gives error message but sends email multiple times and holds in Drafts. Everything on AOHell is SLOWWWW! Might open an email, might not, and sit & spin on most anything, address book not working, long running scripts from the heavy graphic ads, Search barely works, etc. Got 20+ years of life are on this e-address, but it might be time to wean off to Gmail since AOL won't keep its servers up to date and allows too much 3rd party filtering.

aol not working, error message when attempting to send, no contacts either like everyone else - what are they trying to force free aol accounts to pay now - is this their way of say go F yourself its no longer free. The fact that they are forcing one to use your facebook page to post a comment would suggest they are illegally obtaining access to FB folks so they can advertise freely on our accounts

I seem to having the same issues as many users here. I can access my inbox on my phone but rarely logs on on Chrome or Explorer. Messages keep failing to send or sending later after they say they've failed to send and the worst thing is that random emails have been deleted from my 'old email' box. One of them was a password I needed. These are also deleted on my phone.
I have decided to now move my account after many years to a more reliable provider as this is just shockingly bad!

AOL said they had a new format. All that seems different is the rectangular boxes. Right after receiving their message I was unable to set up an e-mail. I cannot access the contacts list. I live in upstate NY. I am able to receive e-mails. Does anyone know how long before this will be fixed? I see that I am not the only one who is totally dependent on the Internet.

Having AOL problems as it appears many others are. Can't reply to anyone's email without an error message, even though it does send. Can't access my contact list. All of my old emails are GONE. Still can get new emails, but lost all other older emails. The counter for old emails has no figure in it at all.
