Problems with AOL login through xNotifier but not direct on web

I am having problems with XNotifier accessing AOL to check on new mail.  I am not having trouble accessing my account when I go directly to AOL via Firefox or via my Android phone.  When setting up the account in XNotifier it asks for a field that doesn't show up on the AOL signin page - It asks for a Locale field.  Is this why it doesn't work?  What do I put into the Locale field?

In general XNotifier does everything I need and works well.  I certainly appreciate the add on!

If you use English site, leave it as blank.

Else you can set 'fr', 'en-bg' according to your preferred language.

I guess the locale field isn't what is keeping XNotifier from accessing my AOL email account.  Any other reason you can come up with why it won't check the AOL account?

Data has been sent.  Thanks!

I don't know why this happens, but if I put in a shortcut name then it works just fine.  It doesn't work if you don't have a shortcut name.  Go figure!  Thanks for your help.  I'm using the last plug in you sent me.  With the short name, it's fine.

What is a "shortcut name" and how do I enter it?

These posts are way old and may not be relevant to the latest problems at all.
I have no idea what the shortcut name is, unless he means entering something in for the Alias in X-N's Options, Aol account, Alias.   I'm just guessing and I don't see why that would help.
If we see more people with the problem, the developer will likely provide an update to fix it.
