    What do you mean by "it stopped working"? What exactly can you do and not do? :)

    Go into /Mail Preferences/Account Information/Server Settings/. Make sure [Authentication] is set to "Password". If your AOL mail server requires password authentication to import mail over to Mac Mail, you're going to need that setting.

    This is my very first "recommendation" post on this forum, so I hope I'm right. :)
