Ratings and Reviews
I have had AOL service for over 25 years and while most everyone I know has a free email service, I appreciate the benefits provided by AOL such as an identity theft protection, anti-computer virus software and most recently, restaurant certificates.
The email service itself however is abysmal. The account cannot reliably open pictures, so at least 4/10 emails with pic attachments result in a spinning icon in the middle of the display followed 10 minutes later by an error message. Emails frequently “move themselves” from new mail to old mail immediately after they are read but this happens only to some emails while others, the majority, stay in new mail until I prompt a move to the old file. In one of the side selection menus in the AOL app, the word mail is misspelled as “male” so even spelling is a too much to get right. Additionally, the account unpredictability disengages and does not allow access from time to time. It requires me to go into another menu and re-enter my password but there is no rhyme or reason to when this happens. Finally, the news stories the AOL provides in its news service are all biased to the political left and are poorly written propaganda pieces for leftist politics.
Emails don’t send out
I’ve been an AOL mail user for quite a long time, over 10 years! and I really love AOL. But when I try to write messages out and send them when using the app, my messages don’t send out and I receive a pop up message saying “Oops, this is embarrassing, something went wrong.” Then I’d have to send the whole message again or I have to type it up again which is annoying. I keep in touch with friends through my email and want to be sure my messages are sent but 90% of the time on my app it pops up that message. It works fine if I go on the website into my account on the computer but for some reason the app won’t cooperate all the time when using the app.
I figured I’d mention this to you because I feel it should be fixed so everyone has the chance to send emails through their phones without any problems. I’m not quite sure if anyone else has this issue but I know I’ve been having it since I’ve downloaded the app years ago.

So Many Problems Lately
I’ve had AOL for decades and everything was reliable up until the last 6-12 months. At some point AOL mail within the general iOS email app would disappear, would have to reload ALL the old email once it finally managed to reconnect, and then would still be unreliable when sending as some things would seem to go but actually just be shoved into a drafts folder while others would go out via one of my non-AOL accounts without me realizing what had happened. Did all the usual things to try and address the issue to no avail. Seemed to be something at the other end and not on these devices. So I turned to this AOL app hoping I’d overcome some of these obstacles with the iOS general email app but this app is glitchy and unreliable with the issues others here have mentioned...having to log back in each time, etc. I really hope these issues are fixed. I’ve been very happy with AOL and didn’t jump ship for things like gmail when many others did but I can’t imagine sticking around in the AOL eco system much longer with it becoming as unreliable as it has lately. Really do hope these issues are fixed soon.
