AOL Mail and Apple device make the best pair. In general, iOS devices support the AOL Mail app, which is available for download in the Apple Store. You can also add any AOL email accounts to the built-in Mail app on your iOS device. But make sure you configure the correct email settings. Otherwise, your AOL email will not open on your iPhone or iPad. If you are already stuck with this case, the below steps might help you overcome it.

AOL Email Will Not Open

Basic troubleshooting:

  1. First, check if the Internet connection is stable on your iPad.
  2. If necessary, turn on and off the Airplane mode to restart the Internet connection.
  3. If you are stuck with the Internet connection, reset the network settings.
  4. Next, check if your iPad is updated to the latest iOS version.
  5. If necessary, troubleshoot the built-in Mail app.

Checking the AOL Mail settings:

Sometimes, you might have misconfigured the email server settings, which in turn may cause AOL email not to open on your iPhone or iPad.

  1. To check the email server settings, open the Settings app.
  2. Tap the Mail button and select your AOL email account from the available list.
  3. Scroll down the page to the Advanced tab.
  4. If you have enabled SSL, check both incoming and outgoing mail server ports.

If the problem persists, implement the next solution.

Removing and re-adding the AOL Mail:

  1. Go to Settings and tap the Mail button.
  2. Select your AOL email account and tap the Delete Account button.
  3. Confirm your action on deleting the email account.
  4. Tap the Add account button and choose the Other option from the list of email service providers.
  5. Input your name, AOL email address, and account password in the available fields.
  6. Tap Next and enter the incoming and outgoing mail server settings.
  7. Tap Save and wait until your email account is added to the Mail app.
