Can I access my AOL email in China?

I have heard that some websites are blacked out in China. I will need to check my AOL email account during an upcoming stay. Should I anticipate any issues?

I don't think you should have any issue. We don't use AOL, but we were able to access our email (gmail) throughout our entire stay with no problem.

These may help; I couldn't see AOL on them:

List of websites blocked in the People's Republic of China

Sites Blocked in China - Highlights

I cannot vouch for accuracy of those lists. Possibly others may be able to.

Cheers, Alan, Australia.

I was able to access my AOL account when I was in China in March.
