  • I think my aol account has been hacked so I updated my password and accepted the 2-step verification onto the aol account. I deleted the aol account on my phone so I could set it up again. I downloaded the authenticator app for the 2-step authentication and attempted to add the aol account back onto my phone. When I have completed the steps, I get the message: Cannot Get Mail The user name or password for "imap.aol.com" is incorrect. Any guidance on how to fix this?
