Thank you, ***** ***** do I get my messages that will be coming in to AOL to be rerouted to gmail? I don't understand at all how Thunderbird will solve my problem
Thanks Kamil! So, I downloaded Thunderbird, and it's in the dock. Now how do I get my googlemail and my aol mail into it?
Is it better to click IMAP or POP3? What's the difference?
Now... the passwords for both google mail accounts I had previously set up are being rejected...
I did get my aol account on to thunderbird, though.
But when I went to www.gmail and followed the steps to import my aol mail , as per your instruction, I see a message "email account cannot be imported "(I had tried to do this ages ago)
I got an email from google saying that "someone had tried to access my account", and that that "person had my password " (Obviously me) I followed their link to make the account "less secure" (according to them) and now my google account is on Thunderbird. Where should I reset my aol password?
That means, you do not have any security info setup or it has expired. You will need to call AOL to do the password ***** I am not sure why my answers arent coming, can you not see them on this screen? I will be leaving and be back in about 2 hours until then i will opt out to allow other experts assist. If no body joins in, then i will get back to you.
I now have managed to reset my aol password. It worked on my second attempt without having to call. But I am still getting a message that my messages on that email cannot be imported by google
Which box? Where? Nothing is working anymore... I think I need you to come on to help me?
It spins around for a few seconds, then it just stops... it won't download. It feels as though everything is broken, now
I can't see that icon anywhere
What is a browser? I just did what you told me to do with the Thunderbird file. Put it in my dock.
Google is a search engine, a website just like this one. Google Chrome is Google's web browser. Do you have a Window button on top?
Good. Gmail is still downloading messages from AOL, there were 2000 something there. It will take some time. After a few minutes or so click the "Get Mail" button on the top left side to update the email so it can check for new messages.
Thanks , Kamil. I have come closer, but not there yet... I now have gmail on thunderbird on my computer... but I can see no way to easily and quickly delete the reams of junk messages I
get. There's no delete button that I can see, other than laboriously opening every message. Or trying to move them to trash , but that often is frustrating, and takes two or three attempts
What do you mean the delete key? I see nothing to click that says delete. That's my point. The only time I'm given the option to delete is when I laboriously open and read each email.
Also, my search engines, google and safari, have been blocked for youtube because a message said someone already was able to access the new gmail account with my password ***** another country. But I don't understand this because I thought my new gmail account was unconnected to google because it's through the search engine, thunderbird
Thank you. I logged on to gmail, but I can't figure out how to request a code to fix the account
But, although I can get on to you tube, all the videos are blocked. And, yesterday , I got a message that someone had been able to access my gmail account with a correct password. I can't find that message now, though...
No, the login was from Sri Lanka, or somewhere I've never been. And the message seemed to have popped up in response to my trying to get videos going
