In the last few days two of my emails I sent from Aol.com to Gmail.com were blocked. One was from my AOL account to my Gmail account. The link below is not working

Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

My phone (chrome) quit letting me access Aol e mails a few weeks back. Had to download Aol's app to get them on the phone now.

I thought AOL went out of business decades ago. I can still remember the dial up modem tones and "you've got mail".

Back in the early days of AOL nearly everyone blocked 'em. many spam-a-lot accounts were AOL.

That they supposedly have corrected (like 30 years ago) but alas the spammers are ever creative in how to get past the .bots Some of em even get past the old Brain.bot (Me).. though most spam goes by by unopened.

Maybe I should have said that I use eM Client as my mail handleing software. I does an outstanding job of blocking spam. Once you get spam simply "move to junk and block domain" No more spam from that source.

Plus I can store important messages on my local HD

I only need to block 1 or 2 spammers a month now. I almost never logins to the AOL website.

I have been using Thunderbird for many, MANY years. There is a lot of online help for setting it up.

You do need to understand the difference between POP email (all mail is downloaded to your computer) and IMAP (mail stays on server unless you specifically set up local folders and move the mail into them; good if you want to occasionally use the web interface).

I also like the editor. Bold, italic, underline and easy to insert pictures and web links.

Best of all you can cut/copy/paste mail between servers !
