    i think someone is reading my email on aol. people have told me they sent me mail and i don't get it, and sometimes this one person knows things she could only know if she were seeing my email but she never has access to my computer. can AOL tell me if someone else is logging on and who they are? don't they keep records of this sort of thing? i write to them and call them and i can never get a straight answer.

    have you told anyone your password? if it's easy to guess then someone could easil log in to your account if they know you well enough.
    Change your password immediately and see how it goes:) btw, anyone can log into their/your Aol e -mail account via any computer with the correct password and user name

    Usually on the Master Account, you can view a log of which screen name signed on and for how long.

    Hi there, you said your friend doesn't have access to your computer? You do know that anyone can access any AOL account from anywhere, provided they know the screen name and password. So in other words, your friend could be at home, in an internet cafe or at work and as long as she has internet access she could go onto the AOL website and log on with your account details. The best thing you could do would be to reset the password for the compromised account, and if you have one change your account security question so your friend won't be able to reset your pasword herself. And yea we're able to check what screenname is online and for how long.
