Norton Blocking AOL mail

[ Edited ]

Within the last hour, Norton has blocked access to AOL mail....I keep receiving a new page message that blocks access to my AOL account log-in page....is this something new or should I just ignore this issue and hope that it goes away?

 

I am running IE 9 and Windows 7 Home edition.

 

Thank you,

This is a copy of the message on the page that I am sent to when I try and log into my AOL accounts....

I have reported you message (message 1) for the bad links which is against the forum rules.  

 

Looks like someone used the AOL webmail / webspace on the server(s) for bad and as a result  the whole "hxxp://mail.aol.com" address is blocked to some degree.

 

I remember this happened to Woosh some time ago with webmail as someone has used their account on the server for bad, so Norton blocked the woosh webmail.

Well, I apologize if I did something wrong or listed something I wasn't supposed to but I am not obviously, a very savvy computer user.

 

 

Thank you for your response.

Re: Norton Blocking AOL mail

The same thing is happening to me. Is Norton going to fix this? I got into my email by downloading and installing aol desktop but I want to do it the usual way. Please advise. Thank you.
