    I live in the UK and for years have accessed AOL Mail UK on my laptop via Google Chrome using the URL AOL – login

    I then login with my Screen Name and Password.

    This used to give AOL – login

    But now for the last couple of days it now gives AOL - login which means that all the news and sports items are American and not British.

    Luckily all the mail items and saved folders are not affected and work OK, so I can still read, save and send emails.

    I have logged in to my email account on a number of different laptops with exectly the same result, so it is not specific to my laptop.

    If via Google Chrome I use the URL www.aol.co.uk and login with my Screen Name and Password it correctly gives https://www.aol.co.uk/ with British news etc. but if I then then click on Mail it again gives
    AOL - login with American news etc.

    I have tried accessing my email account using Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge with exactly the same result.

    As an experiment via Google Chrome I logged on to aol.co.uk and created a new AOL Email Account
    Strangely, no matter how I login to this new account, it correctly gives AOL – login

    Can anyone offer any help and a solution to this problem.

    My Laptop Specification:- HP 250 G4 Notebook, Intel i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz, 4.00GB RAM running
    Microsoft Windows 10 Home fully up to date via Windoes Update.

    Sorry but I have just noticed some of my URL's just give "AOL – login" which not much use.

    I will try again.

    The URL for AOL Mail UK is:- mail.aol.co.uk

    This used to give:- mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-gb/suite (British news and sports etc.)

    Now it gives:- mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite (American news and sports etc.)

    My AOL Mail screen has now reverted back to the UK screen.
