Hi. I have been using AOL for a number of years now and upgraded to broadband last year. However, I have been using Outlook Express for both AOL email and my work email since last year but about 2 weeks ago, I found I was unable to SEND emails from my work account. I can receive emails for both AOL and work without problem but when I try to send emails from work account - it says my server is not recognised. They sometimes do go eventually but after trying a number of times. I have not problem sending AOL emails throught outlook express, so I can only assume AOL have done something at their end!
I do recall this happened a few years ago on dial up and you were unable to send/receive emails through outlook express using AOL as the service provider and had to use a separate dial up account.
I apologies for the depth of this query - but I am not very good at explaining things so sorry if you have fallen asleep by the time you get to the end :-)
