Why did I get the error message "Message: Mailbox is temporarily unavailable" when using AOL Mail?

You may see this error message when we're installing new equipment, which will improve our mail services. We're quickly working towards resolving the issue with minimum inconvenience to our members. You may see better service early in the morning or late in the day. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

FAQs

How long will this take?

The duration of the outage may vary for different users. We're working to restore optimal service as quickly as possible.

What if I need to access my email during the day?

You'll still be able to access your email even during the day. However, you may be more likely to encounter performance issues during peak Internet activity hours. If you have trouble accessing your email at a certain time, we recommend that you sign off, wait a few minutes, and then try again.

Am I going to lose any email with this change?

Nope. This change shouldn't affect your saved, incoming, or sent mail. The improvements that we're making to the back-end service will result in increased security measures and a better delivery system.
