ich kann mein postfach nicht öffnen

I know I got a some problem. I think they working on it to get it fix right now.

You can use an imap service to be able to view your emails.  Set up aol in Outlook or any other program that has IMAP and you can use your mail until they fix the webmail issue. 

Incoming server: imap.aol.com

outgoing server: smtp.aol.com

Why isn't the e-mail working ?

That's sort of like asking why the sun never shines at the North Pole in the winter. This is the umpteenth time I have had this problem. I am missing many important e-mails and most likely losing clients and business because of this.

Maybe if aol didn't allow so many ads and related money-makers that slow things down to a crawl, we would have less problems than we do. I now have g.mail and have never, ever had any problems not getting my mail for the 4 months I have subscribed to it. I am weaning myself off of aol e-mail slowly, and hopefully, one fine day oin the future, I can dump this disgustingly-unresponsive service once and for all.
