AOL Mail Service Down. Thousands Of Users in The UK, US Affected

The giant online email service AOL is down once again, this time for thousands of users who today have reported the company’s e-mail service as not working.

Independent website Down Detector has received thousands of reports of AOL down, with the problem peaking at just under 5,000 reports of AOL down.

Of those affected, 53 per cent are experiencing issues with their e-mail while 26 per cent reported problems with their internet connection.

The AOL down issues today are mainly affecting users in the US, with those in New York, Brooklyn and Los Angeles among those heaviest hit.

The official AOL Customer Support Twitter account has acknowledged the issues and said engineers are working on a fix.

They tweeted today: “We’re aware that service is slow/inaccessible for some of our users when trying to access AOL Mail. We are working to fix it as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.”

They later added: “We appreciate your patience while we are working on a fix. Our engineers are still investigating while AOL Mail is inaccessible for some of our users. We’ll keep you posted once we have an update.”

This isn’t the first time that AOL has gone down recently in the States.

Last month AOL went down for hundreds of users who reported issues with signing in and e-mails.

At the time the AOL Customer Support Twitter account acknowledged the issues and said a fix was in the works.

They tweeted: “We are aware that some of our members are still experiencing Blerk errors when signing in. Our engineers team is working on this.”

Thousands Of London Commuters Warned To Leave Work Early Or Face Travel Chaos As Storm Emma Is Unleashed On The Capital

Hundreds of thousands of commuters were warned on Friday afternoon to head for home early to avoid impending chaos on trains.

A red warning remains in place as extreme weather conditions sweep the UK. This afternoon two of the UK’s biggest commuter rail firms warned commuters to return home as “early as possible”.

South West Trains said none of its services from Waterloo will run after 8pm, sparking fears of a rush as commuters head home for the weekend.

Southern rail, which runs a number of train services through the capital, has urged commuters try to complete their journeys home before 3pm as Storm Emma continued to wreak snow havoc.

Southeastern is advising passengers not to travel on its network at all until further notice due to freezing rain causing ice to form on the railway.

The train service said in statement: “We are currently experiencing severe difficulties with the train service across our entire network as a result of freezing rain and ice forming on conductor rails, which our trains use to pick up power.

“We are currently advising passengers not to travel. This applies to all Southeastern routes – metro, mainline and high speed.

“We are working to bring services back into operation as soon as possible. We will provide further updates as soon as possible.”

Urging customers to head home early today, a South Western Railway spokesman said: “The forecast this afternoon is for further severe snow and high winds.

“We are urging you not to attempt to travel. If you have already travelled, please return as early as possible.

“Our service will be closing down early today. We will confirm what time trains will stop running on our network as soon as we can.”

There were fears of major problems at main stations tonight including Paddington, Euston, King’s Cross and Liverpool Street.


Storm Emma battered Britain with winds of up to 90mph.

Met Office meteorologist Steven Keates warned “we are not out of the woods yet” and said London could see more snow.

The death toll from the weather rose to 10 after a seven-year-old girl was yesterday hit by an out of control car while playing in the snow in Cornwall.
