Nothing to do with OW but... AOL/iCloud Problem
« on: November 27, 2016, 09:11:44 pm »
I am trying to help a friend who is even less high tech than I am. On top of that he has a Mac and AOL rather than a PC and gmail. :'(

All of a sudden today, when he tries to open his email he gets the message "This Mac can't connect to iCloud because of a problem with xxxxxx@aol.com
I don't know if it is just a problem with AOL or if both AOL and iCloud are having problems.

Thanks!

Can't help, sorry. Don't have AOL or iCloud.  :-[

I don't use iCloud, but if the problem persists (it's not an AOL server problem) then this link gives some advice:

I generally avoid any cloud services myself.  :-X
