Like the title says my AOL email wont send. I've tried on wi-fi and Edge. I get the same window popping up saying:

"CANNOT SEND MAIL...The connection the the outgoing server 'smtp.aol.com' failed."

Any suggestions?

I don't use aol myself, but I'm guessing that maybe smtp.aol.com isn't the smtp server? Or maybe you need to set up authentication to authenticate to the SMTP server before sending the email? Just a couple things to try.

I figured out how to fix it. I switched to Yahoo, lol. It works great now.
