ok, there were a lot of problems yesterday with AOL Michael, they had a complete outage, but its fixed now.
Do you still have the red flag?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes, still there but a least I can see and send Emails now.

ok the sending was an issue with the system, so that is resolved.
I believe you just flagged the message Michael, which is a way to highlight it for your own reasons (to remember to read it later ect)
If you click the flag it should then remove.
Does it?
