    Hello,

    When did the problem start and is it all emails that are being lost or only the email from Facebook?

    There was an issue with AOL's mail service yesterday :

    http://www.emailquestions.com/mail-...ind-any-host-name-name-service-not-known.html

    It's possible that there is a backlog of email at Facebook waiting to be delivered or slowly delivering to AOL.

    Are you able to send them an email directly from another email account such as a Gmail Yahoo or Hotmail account?

    This is most likely a temporary issue that you'll need to wait out.

    How do you send the email from AOL?

    Are you using the desktop software or the webmail from your web browser?

    I still have one of the same questions, can your AOL successfully email to anyone at all?

    Check your junk email / spam folders. Are you getting any bounce messages back several hours or days after you tried to send them an email? Did they finally start receiving email again after some time passed? Do they have an alternate email address that you can try sending an email to?

    It doesn't sound like someone else has had access to your account but it shouldn't hurt to change your password.

    Check your filters to make sure the email is not automatically being incorrectly filtered to the wrong folder.
