  2. Click on the ‘Paperclip’ icon that lets you choose files to attach; the file explorer window will open

What to Do If You Can’t Attach Files to AOL Mail?

Not being able to attach files is one of the major AOL mail attachment problems; there can be several reasons due to which you can face issues in attaching files as attachments in AOL mail. Here is what you can do when you can’t attach your file in your mail:

  1. If  AOL is not sending any emails, or you are getting an error message, verify that you aren’t exceeding the email attachment limit prescribed by AOL; the file you have attached must not be more than 25 MB
  2. You will need a working internet to send any emails or attach any files, so make sure your device is connected to a network and provides adequate signal strength.
  3. If you are using your AOL email account on a browser and cannot attach a file, make sure it is an updated one. Also, the browser needs to be compatible or else AOL may stop working.

If the AOL server is down for any reason, and you are not able to log in, you won’t be able to send an email or add any attachment; so you need to ensure that everything is working fine at AOL.
