Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do what I can to provide the right answer to your question.
In this case, a live phone call will be necessary to straighten things out with AOL, if possible.... because, quite simply, without any account with AOL, you cannot use their online facilities in that fashion, by online means only. You'll have to get your account reinstated by a customer service rep. for AOL, then you could hope to do things online with your account.
The alternative is to open a new AOL account, which of course would do nothing RE the old account.
So unfortunately you will have to call AOL Customer Service in normal business hours.
