I cannot connect to...

I cannot connect to Outlook. It tries but times out. I've recently up

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Outlook? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

On my computer

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I tried going to find send and receive and clicking on the group name.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes, I recently set up the AOL/Verizon change. I had a problem that all 49000 old e-mails duplicated and tried to down load to my Outlook file. I deleted a lot of them but it looks like they are still on the AOL server. I did check the box in set up to have them not stay on the server. I tested (and changed as required) my e-mail and it went through ok.
