Just got off the phone with AOL.  I am attmepting to configure OUTLOOK for the 10th or 11th time.  It works for a minute, then it stops working.


AOL informed me tech support will only help me if I buy AOL tech support.  According to service rep, Verizon gave us "BASIC" plan that does not include tech support!


It would n't be a big deal, but what about my 16+ years of emails and archived emails?


When I switch mail programs, I lose all that.
