I really miss all my emails in one place and would like to have it in on place to work . I’ve checked with AOL which is lost and have given up responding to me . I supposed they would like to have me online so that I will be forced to watch their ads constantly which is one of the reason I like receiving email through Thunderbird. Why Thunderbird Suddenly Not Getting AOL Mail?
It has a snapshot of some settings for an AOL IMAP account using port 993 and SSL/TLS. I suggest you double check your settings on it.

Did you sign up with AOL originally or were you migrated from Verizon to AOL last year?
