AOL Mail is a free web-based email (webmail) service provided by AOL. The service is sometimes referred to as AIM Mail where AIM stands for AOL Instant Messenger which is AOL's instant messaging service. During the summer of 2012, AOL Mail got a new look, its first significant overhaul in five years.

Features[edit]

AOL Mail has the following features available at no cost:

AOL Project Phoenix[edit]

The new email program by AOL features a Quick Bar where emails, text messages, and AOL Instant Messenger messages can be sent from one area. It also lets people add up to five accounts into it. It features a search feature that will load photos, attachments, addresses, and dates from emails. It is currently being tested and can only be accessed by an invitation.[6]

AOL has stopped work on Project Phoenix, sometime in September 2011 [7]
