    Can't email from AOL after updating to 8.1

    Hi, Yesterday I was forced to update both Windows Explorer and Windows to enable me to view a website (Debenhams). Since doing that I am unable to send emails from AOL and can't open new emails. The only way to see them is to go directly from the inbox as if to forward them.

    Any ideas what my problem is please, bearing in mind I am pretty computer illiterate

    How are you accessing AOL Mail?

    via Web Browser - Internet Explorer 11; Firefox 35; Chrome 40

    Via Email Client - Windows Mail Store App; Thunderbird; Outlook 2013

    Also, I don't understand you updating Windows? Are you using Windows 8.1?
