I keep getting a message that says Cannot Get Mail the user

Customer Question

I keep getting a message that says Cannot Get Mail the user name or password XXXXX AOL is incorrect. I re-enter the info in Settings, although nothing had changed, but the message still pops up when I go to Mail.
This happens all the time now, and only occasionally does the mail update, sometimes 5 or 6 hours later, and after re-entering the settings info, dozens of times.

In your iPhone, goto Settings and tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars. In there, select your AOL account and then delete it. Then restart your iPhone and add it back. Let me know if that didn't worked. Only click Accept after we solved the problem
