If I cancel my AOL membership and then decide to go back to AOL, can I use my old screen name? Also, what happens to mail that was sent when I was no longer a member? Can I still retrieve it?

Restoring A Screen Name & Checking E-Mail After Account Cancellation

If you delete an AOL screen name or have cancelled your AOL account and wish to reinstate it, you may be able to get your screen name back within a six month period without worrying about it being taken by another user.

If you have cancelled an AOL account, your mail will still go to that account for some time and you may still be able to access it by going to aol.com and putting in your old screen name and password.

Have had my tower checked out. Can't get any of my email. Keeps telling me wrong email address. I've had the same address for over 10 years. What's the problem?
