Featured Answer From AOL Help


This is a known issue that we are working on - however the solution is a ways off.  For now, the best solution is to log in to your account through a web browser at mail.aol.com, sort your mail by those containing attachments to help find the email with the offending attachment, and either move it to a folder that is not synced with Outlook, or delete it.
