    I have had no problems with my aol acct which I set up on my droid for the last 4 months I've owned it until today, I go to check email and it says incorrect username and password. So I went to web mail and logged in with no problem. My gmail also works fine. I have had the same aol password for about 4 years. It hasn't changed. Why am I locked out suddenly? Any ideas?

    No idea why it happened, but if it was me, I'd delete the account and re-add it.

    Don't use the stock email client. Use anything else.

    If I agreed with that anymore, I would have written it.

    If you do want to change and need a nudge in a certain direction, I use K9.

    Haha, yeah I use k9 too but I write that so many times I don't want to look like a shill.

    awesome - I will do that. Thanks :)

    I have been looking for another email client but couldn't find anything. Why are they so difficult to find?

    strange, I am using the k9 mail and it also says incorrect username/password. (it's definitely not incorrect though)

    Even weirder, all of a sudden I got an alert that I have 13 new e-mails in AOL (with the default mail client on the droid) - it just started to work again. Maybe my phone is glitchy today.
