AOL.com Alert Tests fail with 5008010001 error

Just upgraded to firmware 6.10.6 and attempted an alert test using my AOL.com email address.  Received the "Cannot send a test mesage.  Check authentification settings.  Code 5008010001"

I realized that I have not been receiving alerts for a while - probably since Verizon tightened AOL security a while back.  Is there any fix, workaround or way to send a message via my SMS provider?

Got notifications to AOL working again.  Had to go into AOL security and generate a 3rd-party app password.  Instructions here:

Were you able to check your AOL settings? If they made security enhancements there might be a setting that is preventing ReadyNAS to access.

 

Have you tried recreating the settings? or rechecking with Verizon/AOL? Have you tried using a different provider? like gmail perhaps?
