Lost all sent emails on AOL

7 years ago
last modified: 7 years ago

Have had free web account for years. Never had problems with AOL previously, other than occasional downtime.

Sent emails were present while I was online on my laptop when I logged off several days ago. When I logged on later in the day, all the sent files were gone. I didn't delete them deliberately or even accidentally.

This sort of deletion/activity has never occurred before.

I've not done anything to recover them other than to wait, with fingers crossed, and hope that all would be well soon. Not so. (sigh)

Just now went to AOL Just Answer and asked "what happened?" and "how to avoid this again?"

Now they want a cc # and a "good faith $5 deposit."What can you suggest to prevent this sort of loss again?
