I am the person that will be helping you today.

First off, if you cannot access your AOL account, there is no way for you to delete your AOL account. If you remove the AOL account from your Mail program, yes you will lose all the saved emails.

If you somehow delete the AOL account online, you may or may not lose the emails in your mail application because it depends on which type of mail protocol you used to setup the account. (IMAP or POP3).

But as it stands, if you cannot log into your account, you cannot delete the account.

If you wish, I can remote into your system and help you.
