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.

Keeps telling me I cannot het mail because my user name or password is incorrect. It was never incorrect before. I can access from the web too just not from the app. Strange thing is, I have two screennames that I can view on the app. One I can get mail for and one I cannot (on the app) I wonder if AOL is just trying to sell their tech help service. How long before they fix what is obviously a new problem. I have had it for about 5-6 days now.

AOL email for AOL Desktop seems to be down. The webclient works but I can't see emails past 2010. When I send a test email to myself, I can only see it through the webclient version of AOL. If you're in AOL and click on Inbox, you can see newer mail but now all of them. It looks like they have already been read. I subscribed to AOL tech support but I can't get them on the phone or through live support through their chat engine. Something serious must be wrong.

Sounds there is problem for many AOL users. It is impossible to access mail - and only emails from 2010 appear. We have been on hold with AOL Customer Service for 2 hours. We are number 98 in the Live Chat queue. Has anyone gotten through to them to find out what the problems is?

No connection available to AOL using their 9.7 version. Using IE11, I can get to the Internet. Using Bing and Google, I find their search engines have links to AOL Mail, but those don't connect either. Despite this site saying it is up, my laptop says it is not.

Have had trouble accessing mail for a couple days now. AOL home page usually loads OK, but when you try to sign in to mail it just spins its wheels. If you try to sign in to AOL, sometimes it "takes" and sometimes it doesn't. When it does, it tells you how many unread emails you have, but the preview is unavailable. Then when you click on the mail icon 8/10 times it just spins its wheels. Trouble with all our browsers. Mail works fine on my phone via same router.

I have been having a horrible time with AOL for the past week, middle of June 2014. Same trouble with each of our three user names. Slow, will not load, sometime loads, sometimes does not... mostly not. It is an unacceptable service and needs immediate attention. I have been a loyal customer since 1995, but could not put up with much more of this nonsense without switching over to my gmail account for good. I can't believe there are not more June posts here.

I was having problems with my Comcast connection and had to turn the modem off and back on. That is when I started getting a blank page for AOL's main page. I got into my mail box by going to mail.aol.com thereby skipping the main page completely. I have also had the issue of getting errors when trying to open a piece of mail. Eventually I am able to but there is something really strange going on here. It doesn't have anything to do with US, it has everything to do with AOL but now I have to ask, why is COMCAST involved? I had to reboot everything twice to get back on the internet and it wasn't until I did that I was unable to access AOL's main page. It also sounds like everyone is getting the runaround. Hmmm

My email has been down since Thursday. Tried everything. Suggestion... get different provider and change business email to new provider and maintain 2 providers ...perhaps save aol as a "backup" It is down more than up

my aol is not working. It comes up then just sits there and I can't use it. I tried the one on my desk top, then later when I got back my computer I went on aol.com and the same thing happens

unable to access aol email on phone or laptop. getting error, invalid username or password. tried to reset password and got yet another error message, unable to access at this time. so now i dont know whether i have changed my password or not. it told me to call them, but when you call, you wait ages and then get an automated message saying call back in 2 hours as they are resetting their systems. very frustrating!!!

I, too, have been unable to access AOL on either my mobile phone or my new tablet. I have had messages saying incorrect user name and password and others saying Error: Oops, due to an unexpected error we are unable to sign you in at this time. Please try again later. UK West Midlands

tried to access mail on my phone said password was wrong - this happened to me last week too but I was able to change it on my PC now I can't even get to the site on my computer. I think I am going to transfer all my mail to gmail! This is ridiculous

Once again I cannot send or receive AOL mail on my mac, and when I try to sign in directly on the AOL site I get the dreaded message: "Error: Oops, due to an unexpected error we are unable to sign you in at this time. Please try again later." Been unsuccessfully trying again for over an hour. I have no problem with my other accounts.

Can't access AOL mail on my desk top or lap top; however, I have been able to access my AOL mail on my smart phone.

My aol down, but it is not a problem, understand they have had security issues recently, the whole of aol I was told. x

Looks like AOL is down, but people, don't panic. Find something else to do. Use your telephone to call that person to communicate. Get a cup of coffee. Take a little walk. Just sit quiet for a few minutes. Relax. Breathe. AOL will take care of it shortly. God bless and have a great Friday --weekend. :)

I have been having problems with AOL being down with 2 computers. Please advise as to what is the problem and when will it be trustworthy.

I'm having a problem accessing AOL Mail right now on my desktop but I can still access on my iPhone.
Edit: Whoops, can't get on my phone now, either!

I am in Washington DC area and was using AOL up to about 30minutes ago when it kicked me out in middle of long email draft and now won't allow me access

I have been trying to access Aol for two weeks, I can access my email from my phone but can not connect to the AOL server at all. I've cleared my cache and cookies, ect....All it says it that I cannot connect right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
