Can't access my emails

  deli boy 16:06 24 Jul 2008

I can't access my emails.
When I access AOL, after typing in email name and password, nothing happens except the spinner goes round but does not load up the page.

I can access my emails via but this does not facilitate my address book or old email.
I have done a virus check, and downloaded Internet Explorer 7, all without luck. Checking SSL and TLS in Advanced options on Explorer are still valid.

I have another email address with yahoo and can't access emails direct or via

Add on
Even tried lowering security level on Firewall and adding AOL on trusted sites on IE7, although I was surprised it was automatically already there.

I downloaded AOL 9 to upgrade and can now access emails, thanks all. Not too sure that is really the complete solution as via Internet Explorer still loading the old version, and i have to launch AOL from PC. I guess I will have to change some settings to get rid of the old address.
Thanks guys!

I have been using AOL 9.1 for several months now with no problems my OS is XP you can download from click here

Accessing direct through AOL9.1 is ok but problem is it is not my ISP, which is SUPANET. I keep the AOL account separate but if I access via AOL 9.1 for all internet time I have additional charges made. How do I change this in internet options as as default gives me the earlier access problems?

I sometimes use IE7 to log to AOL web mail, if you logged on through your browser likewise I can't see how you would incur extra charges.

May I suggest that you say Google AOL web mail and log on that way. Save results to your favourites.
