hi. My AOL mail is not receiving emails on my MAC laptop (Safari). This has been so for 3 weeks, since a scam outfit in India pretending to be AOL got access into my computer. I have tried to reconfigure settings but nothing helps. Any suggestions?
Which version of OS X is on the laptop?
I have been using mail in the dock as you suggested, for several years, going back to previous MACs. So I agree with you. My contacts are fortunately safe, as you say. But the problem is that I can't receive current mail on this program. That is, I get mail on iPad and iPhone, but not on my MAC system. It stopped working. I will try to follow your advice later this evening and see if I can reload the "stamp" icon and program. That may be the solution, but not sure how to do it. I will follow your links, and thanks very much. I will give you high ratings if this works.
The account can be deleted also and then recreated, this erases the plist that was corrupted.
That more helpful?
I am now receiving old emails sent in the last 6 weeks. This is terrific, assuming it means the system is working again. Thanks again.
Happy to have been of service. You are quite welcome.
