Maybe nothing.

AOL is their own world. If you are using their web mail interface you'll have to ask AOL about this.

From which device you are forwarding the mails, computer or mobile device. If from mobile device then from which application...??

I am forwarding the mail with the IPad, using the AOL mail service.

I can forward ok thru the computor, all attachments go with that forward, its the IPad I'm having problems with. I can't ask AOL, because I am using their FREE email service

Who wrote the app you use? Did you ask their support?

Add attachments manually

I have faced the same problem with Gmail account on my Android phone once, while forwarding some documents via the mail application.
I found that the app can't forward the attachments while forwarding the mail, so the solution I figured out was to save the file over my phone memory and further compose a new mail and manually add attachments.

Try it, this will definitely work for you.

I've been trying to do the same thing on an android tablet. Either maol or taol comes up and there seems to be no option to attach anything. How are you doing it?

think I found the answer. Instead of going to AOL through the app, i go to mail by the Ipad mail icon. Had to copy in all my email contacts to this application, but the attachments are staying with the mail when I forward. I guess it just did not like the AOL app.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
