Most modern browsers employ pop-up blockers to keep away the annoying ads or offers that can overwhelm your experience online. While this is often a good thing as it prevents malware and other programs from infecting your computer, it can also cause problems with legitimate sites like AOL Mail.

If you click on links in a legitimate email and get a notice that link can't be opened, you will need to either temporarily turn off your pop-up blocker, or add AOL Mail to the list of sites you allow pop-ups from.

Tip icon.While Internet Explorer may still work with some AOL products, it's no longer supported by Microsoft and can't be updated. Because of this, we recommend you download a supported browser for a more reliable and secure experience.
