Are you facing password prompting problem while syncing AOL account in Microsoft Outlook?

In this article, we have covered the most common queries of users when they connect their AOL email account in Microsoft Outlook.

The queries are:

  1. Why is AOL not connecting to Outlook?
  2. Why AOL mail not working with Outlook 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010 and 2007?
  3. Why does Outlook 2016 keep asking for my AOL password again and again at the time of configuration?
