Long time user from the compuserve days.
What I still like about AOL,although I don't pay anything it is still allowing me to use my e-mail address after all these years.
I have signed up to other providers in the past,but as soon as you terminate the contract or stop paying,you can't use their e-mail address anymore.
1) Can anyone tell me how to stop all the oath e-mails requesting re-register or we will stop you using the AOL service.
2) Can you send e-mails to yourself advising of events you are planning to attend on the day or a couple of days in advance. Thanks in advance.

I can't help with either question, infoman, but would just like to endorse what you've said about the AOL email - I've had my email address for many years, and through several changes of service provider.

I've never had an "oath email" though.

I use AOL (and yes, I used Compuserve grin ), but I haven't had an oath email. I'm not sure what that is. I use the app on my phone, and have set up AOL as the primary email on my laptop. If you are using the web version, that might be the problem.

You can email yourself, but why not just use the calendar on your phone/tablet or computer? You'd still have to open the email.
