Hi

dresteve2000 :

I am here to help you with this issue.

dresteve2000 :

Is it sending all old emails again or is it only sending some of your old emails

dresteve2000 :

please let me know.

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

It is sending some of my old emails. I am afraid to open it up again before it's been fixed. Alan

dresteve2000 :

Ok...

dresteve2000 :

Can you sign into AOL mail online?

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

yes -- I can do that.

dresteve2000 :

Do you see any messages in your Sent folder?

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

hold on...

dresteve2000 :

sure, take your time please.

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

yes, from yesterday when I tried to use the new aol for mac -- and I tried to sign on just before you cam on line and I got notice that an attempted email was undeliverable -- an old email that went out when I was trying to sign on

dresteve2000 :

Ok, so you just see that one failed attempt

dresteve2000 :

What about the drafts folder, is it empty as well?

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

from yesterday there many, many failed attempts when I was trying to sign on....

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

draft folder is empty

dresteve2000 :

Did you download the AOL desktop from this website:

http://daol.aol.com/software/desktop-for-mac/

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

yes -- should I delete the one I have and try this one again?

dresteve2000 :

Yes, please delete/uninstall the one you have, then try to download it from that website please

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

hold on

dresteve2000 :

sure

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

okay, should I try to open it?

dresteve2000 :

Yes please.

dresteve2000 :

please keep a sharp eye on outbox/sent folder

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

It just notified me that it sent an old email out again...

dresteve2000 :

Ok, please close it again.

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

closed

dresteve2000 :

Thanks, are you a free user of AOL or do you pay AOL for some service?

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

free user --

dresteve2000 :

Ok, even though you are a free user, I think it may be best for you to call AOL support and notify them of the issue.

dresteve2000 :

Do you have time to call them? It will not cost you anything to call.

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

really? I paid 38 dollars to get this suggestion.....

dresteve2000 :

I'll be honest

dresteve2000 :

I had you check everything that I know of

dresteve2000 :

and if you want a refund that's fine

dresteve2000 :

but I do not work for AOL so I cannot look into a server problem

dresteve2000 :

but I've helped people before that just had to call AOL to get the problem resolved.

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

We didn't check anything at all.. Yes, I want a refund..... I feel cheated. Not a good feeling.

dresteve2000 :

Ok, We'll do a refund, but you call them and while we're chatting? I'm still curious as to why this is happening to your account.

dresteve2000 :

If you don't mind that is...

dresteve2000 :

The number is 1 800 827 6364

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

calling now

dresteve2000 :

Ok great.

dresteve2000 :

Did they give you any info into what's happening?

JACUSTOMER-byynh6rc- :

I' I'm not getting anywhere with them. How do I get refund?

dresteve2000 :

I'm going to send to customer service

dresteve2000 :

and they will process the refund for you.
