slightly confusing post - possibly missing a full stop?

Are you saying:

now it appears to be blocked. Emails are shown on the IPad, but am unable to access site

i.e. there is full stop after "blocked"?

How are you attempting to access the AOL site - via iPad, or another device (e.g. computer)?

Have you tried to aces AOLfrom a computer?

I don't have an Ipad but I did do a search in AOL.I'm using AOL 9.7 Sign in to AOL and at the right top - Help - click AOL Help - Type in - Ipad Email They have a lot listed that might be of help. ====== To call AOL --------
1 800 827 6364 You will need a pay account to get AOL help by phone. $12.00 a month for dial up will allow you to get their help and I believe they did have something for $7.00 a month.

✔ Best Answer
If you need to check your Email Account settings. for AOL Copy and Paste Below
Imap and POP email
These days, IMAP is the more common option. It keeps your email (and folders) on the remote email server, which means you have access from multiple locations – including mobile. Requires you to download your Inbox (no folders) to your computer before you can read it—and, depending on settings, your email is deleted from the server as soon as it’s downloaded.

Here’s how to access AOL Mail in another email application.

IMAP and POP Configuration Instructions:
IMAP Setup Information

IMAP Username: YourUsername@aol.com (or @love.com, @games.com, etc.)
Incoming Mail Server: imap.aol.com (Use port 143 for standard or 993 for SSL connections)
SMTP Outgoing Server Address: smtp.aol.com Set the port to 587
SMTP Username: YourUsername@aol.com (or @love.com, @games.com, etc.)
SMTP Password: password you use to login to Mail
For a secure connection, check the SSL option for IMAP/POP and TLS for SMTP in your mail program.

POP Setup Information

POP Username:YourUsername@aol.com (or @love.com, @games.com, etc.)
Incoming Mail Server: pop.aol.com (Use port 110 for standard or 995 for SSL connections)
Remember to check the option to Leave messages on the server
SMTP Outgoing Server Address: smtp.aol.com Set the port to 587
SMTP Username: YourUsername@aol.com (or @love.com, @games.com, etc.)
SMTP Password: password you use to login to Mail
For a secure connection, check the SSL option for IMAP/POP and TLS for SMTP in your mail program.

Here’s what you won’t get or see when accessing AOL Mail from another application:
AIM: Your buddies!
Message Status: You will not be able to check the status of a sent message or retrieve unopened email from AOL users.
Spam: The Report Spam button is not available on IMAP. To report messages as spam, move them to your email application’s Spam folder.
Deleted mail: Some applications show deleted email in the original folder with the message flagged for deletion (such as Outlook or Eudora), while other applications do not show these emails.
Are Your Emails Getting Deleted? If you're missing emails when you sign into mail.aol.com, make sure you select "Leave messages on server" in the other email's POP settings. Here's how (and why :-).
