    I have 3 aol mail accounts configured in Outlook. On 1 account I cannot view messages in my inbox through Outlook. I see them however using aol software or using aol web mail. The other two accounts work fine on all software. Sometimes I get error 0x800ccc05 or 0x800cccde. Any ideas what's happening? Could a specific aol imap server be down? I can send emails through outlook form the account I can't receive from. Thank you in advance.

    3 AOL accounts in Outlook?? You are a brave soul.

    AOL was never designed to be used outside their proprietary software...however, due to the inevitable and necessary death of dial-up, they had to scramble and try and offer a service to keep their customers...one of which was IMAP. I think you probably nailed the answer with some internal problems at AOL. Their web based service has improved, although just as annoying and slow as their proprietary service. I would really recommend either using the web based service only OR if you need the other Outlook features, look to a much better and faster service like Gmail to handle your email, calendar, and other needs.

    Good luck.
