On my laptop I've been checking my AOL e-mail via the Windows Mail app. This morning I got an e-mail from AOL that has raised some concerns about whether Windows Mail will remain synced with my AOL account in the future:
We’ve noticed that you’re using non-AOL applications (such as third-party email, calendar, or contact applications) that may use a less secure sign-in method. To protect you and your data, AOL will no
longer support the current sign-in functionality in your application starting on October 20, 2020. This means that you will need to take one of the steps below to continue using your AOL Mail without interruption.
One of the options this e-mail mentions is using a third-party app password (regarding two-factor authentication), but I am unsure if trying this method will result in complications I cannot remedy on my own.
