Internet Won't Access my Email. Help!

So I have a super fast connection with Cablecom and all was well for a week, then all of a sudden my ipad and Macbook tell me that my AOL and Gmail passwords are not correct. I went to both email accounts online and they are fine, password correct. I connected to my neighbors Wifi and BINGO, it worked. When I connected back to my own wireless, I get the message. Does anyone know if I have a router setting wrong? None of my devices can connect to any email while on my wifi network. I have never experienced this before, so if anyone has, please fill me in. Thanks.

So you are saying, web mail at home does not work, but web mail works at your neighbours, are are you using en email client that does not work ?

It sounds like http online they work , offline they don't so perhaps the POP3 ports are blocked by the router or a firewall ?

The error message states that my password is incorrect, that is what I get on my ipad. On my macbook is says the same thing and keeps asking for my password. I got Gmail to work finally, not sure why. AOL is not connecting.

Strange, CJ has the same problem on my old iP1 , can't access her Hotmail/Live account through the mail app but web mail works fine. Password specific errors mean that the port is open and SSL is working.

Yes, and I've also tickled the microphone and licked the home button.

Broke down and called AOL...had to upgrade account for a month to get support and they said that they are having majors issues with their SMPT servers and hope to have it fixed in the next few days. We will see.

AOL - Where you pay extra to find out they have a problem. Awesome business model.

I hope it works out for you.

AOL used to be "da bomb" not so many years ago. They've been going downhill slowly, and so has my usage of them.

I can't believe they made you PAY for them to tell you that THEY are having system problems. Utter bullscheiße!

If only I could get away with that with my customers. Great SLA - if you're AOL.

Seriously though that's a pretty damn poor show. Have you thought about moving to another service provider?

Re: Internet Won't Access my Email. Help!

AOL used to be one of the best. I would dump them, but I have had my email for 15 years now and migrating would require me to rack my brain for ALL of the people, organizations etc.. that have my AOL and change it. Daunting task considering everything from frequent flier cards to my Migros card have my AOL email attached and would have to be changed. Yikes.

Then it's a perfect opportunity for a clear out!

"You tried to email me? Oh, I'm sorry. I changed my email address two years ago... did I forget to tell you?"
