The first step to take if you want to get your mail running again in Outlook is to go to the control panel and click on the Account Settings link. Here you will see all of your accounts and their current settings including your inactive state. Clicking on the "Inactive" link will bring up a list of reasons why your AOL mail has stopped working in Outlook. Some of the most common reasons include deleted items, unknown senders or recipients, and incomplete or damaged folders. Review these reasons and make sure that they are valid reasons before making any further attempts to contact AOL.
Method 1: Update Password
If you have updated the password for your AOL email password on the internet or browser, you need to make sure that you update it on an email client like Outlook.
- Open Outlook and go to Account Settings
- Choose your AOL email account and now update your browser
Method 2: Update Email Application
The older version of MS Outlook can make it difficult for you to use third-party emails like AOL. Because the outdated version might not work with the latest security settings of AOL email. So, you can try updating the version of the Outlook email client for better and error-free functioning.
