I can email myself (from my aol address to my aol address)

Customer Question
via Outlook, but emails to...
I can email myself (from my aol address to my aol address) via Outlook, but emails to other addresses (including to my gmail address) get stuck in the outbox with an error: "The server responded: 521 5.2.1 : Service Temporarily Unavailable". I am able to email from aol webmail to my gmail account, so the problem is on the Outlook side, rather than the AOL side, it seems.
JA: How long has this been an issue?
Customer: about an hour
JA: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?
Customer: most often through Outlook 2007
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: ScanPST (no change) MFCMAPI to see if there are phantom emails getting stuck in the outbox (there aren't any that I could find) restarted outlook, restarted computer, of course...
JA: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't want to start a new PST from scratch. Too much of a pain! Need to find a fix, rather than an overhaul.

I can send and receive gmail through Outlook, and can receive aol email through outlook, but can not send aol email (but, oddly, I can send an aol email to myself, and it goes through)

Is that $39 IN ADDITION to the initial cost?
Email technician: Kris Rodgers, IT Manager replied 1 year ago

Yes, this is a system generated offer.

I can connect and resolve. Money back If I can't

Totally optional though.

Let's try it the old-fashioned way. I'm tech savvy enough that I should be able to follow your directions. Over $40 for tech support is a lot (but still seems fair). over $80 for tech support is much more than I want to spend right now. Tell me what you need to know, I'll give you the info and I'll follow your instructions.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Of course, you're likely to fix the problem much more quickly if you take over my computer. You should offer me a discount to take over my computer, then use the extra time to get an additional client. You'll make more money that way :-)
Email technician: Kris Rodgers, IT Manager replied 1 year ago

Let me see what I can do :)

I appreciate the offer, but remote assistance saves you time, which means I shouldn't have to pay anything more for it.
anyway, let's get to the repair. time's precious.
Email technician: Kris Rodgers, IT Manager replied 1 year ago

Ok let's continue.

Click show profiles. Do you see your AOL profile?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It says "Outlook", which is where my AOL account is set up. (when I double-click "outlook" then "email accounts", my aol email account is listed, as is my gmail account.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
you there?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Okay, I'll ask for my money back and will get help elsewhere. Waiting 25 minutes for a response is not acceptable.
