Question

AOL netscape no access

I use Firefox with Google as my
homepage and have been using the same bookmarked netscape.net email
address for 13 years now. For the last few days I have been unable to
access my email as I am told either "Firefox can't find the server
at netscape.aol.com." or "Firefox can't find the server at
my.screenname.aol.com." Occasionally I can get on to the site by
clicking the Try again button but cannot send messages. Any advice on
this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Clarification Request
Not sure as

I cannot access netscape.aol.com myself. I am in the UK and I keep defaulting to the netscape.aol.co.uk web site.

However, on the chance that your bookmark is now ineffective, (may be they have changed the link), are you able to sign in for Netscape mail from that netscape.aol.com home page?

If not, what error messages? If there is a Server Not Found message again it would seem their server is down and you may need to contact them, either by phone, (preferably), or via their "Contact Us" links.

I find that I cannot contact other AOL mail sites, not even aol.com, from home or two local public sites. This message or similar always appearsFirefox can't find the server at webmail.aol.com.


I tried to register for AIM mail but could not access this either.

Can you give an example

Please give an example of the web site address that gives this error. Perhaps we can try.

Many thanks again. Yesterday afternoon I tried to log-in again and all is suddenly OK. I can only assume that AOL have been making changes as my bookmarked address, (http://netscape.aol.com/) now opens the homepage whereas before it went straight to the mail log-in page. Fingers crossed all is now well. Gerald Gibbons

Glad its working for you again.
