Enthusiast - Level 2

I followed the migration directions.  I have established an AOL account with my old Verizon email but outlook iphone and ipad after changing the password will not receive the email and I can't get assistance from Verizon to solve the problem.  They said unfortunately they do not know what the problem is but i can PAY to get the problem solved $39 1x or $10 per month with Expert  Sales or look at AOL or speak to them.  AOL said I can PAY them to help with the problem.  Neither GUARANTEES any solution.  I spoke to Apple who would help for free but said we'd need confirmation of the settings from Verizon.  Verizon confirmed the settings BUT they DO NOT WORK.  So my only choice is always logging into or forwarding mail to another account.   Has anyone had this problem and solved it?  I did all I was directed to including establishing a new AOL password and then changing the passwords in the other locations (outlook, iphone, ipad) and also adding to the email address...

Can you access the account via  Via clients on PC/mac?   Most people have had no problem.  If you are seeing your email on webmail on AOL then its AOL support you Should need to deal with.

Other than changing your password, you should have not needed to make any other changes. 

If choose to delete and redefine your email on yourapple devices, at least at this time, choose to redefine them by choosing VERIZON setup not AOL.
