Pros
I do like the search feature as it is helpful. I also appreciate the ability to create many folders for sorting.
It was a very good one and I would recommend only after other products that I have grown to love.
AOL Mail was so much fun to use and great for getting messages across. It is what we had before posting memes on social media became a thing.
Cons
I would often have trouble signing in especially when I was traveling overseas which is why I stopped using it.
Non-existent customer service. Spam is very hard control, and literally takes control over the mailbox.
There are a lot of ads now in the software. I also find that some of my emails are mistakenly marked as spam.

AOL mail is my go to now

Reviewed a year ago

Absolutely love it having that feature where you can delete multiple multiple messages at one time is a godsend because I have one email that has 65,000 emails in it and that’s ridiculous but it doesn’t have the option where I can click on the box in the league multiple at a time. So I can deal with him aggravate me about downloader app download our app to have that option to wipe out all of the mail that I don’t want that one time

Pros

The thing I like most about AOL mail is that they have an option where you can click a box and then you click up at the top and you can delete every single message in that category all at one time. Like if you have 100 messages from today you click on one and you go up and click today box and there it is they’re all related

Cons

The thing I absolutely hate is they will bother you so bad until you download download their app the AOL mail app it’s not enough that you can go online to www.aol.com no you have got to download that out because they will drive you crazy until you do

Use AOL mail for the privacy

Reviewed 9 months ago

I enjoy AOL for the primary fact of privacy

Pros

I like how AOL is far more private and they aren't spying on your emails like gmail and other email providers are

Cons

It's obviously a little outdated but it's totally okay if you value your privacy

Aol email still works, and can be utilized as a "short email address that is easy to remember"

Reviewed a year ago

I use it as my 1st line of defense when giving out email address to vendors and others that I know will sell my info and spam me in the future. I also setup aol mail to forward messages to another email service so that i rarely have to log in to aol and deal with their cluttered layout

Pros

It's free and easy to use, and has a short domain address making it easy to remember. I usually give out my aol address to vendors and sales people, as to avoid repeating my address several times, which is needed with long complex adresses.

Cons

The messy layout with ads everywhere makes it a frustrating and messy experience.

You've Got Mail!

Reviewed 2 months ago

I use Aol mostly now for personal emails but I did have a previous job that used it as well.

Pros

Aol is still a wonderful email service and I will likely always have one.

Cons

It doesn't have some of the latest features but it's still gets the job done.

With All The Email Providers, I'll Still Go Back To My First Love -- AOL

Reviewed 9 months ago
Pros

The email provider was outside of college was my first. I still use it for more personal use. Until I was able to get and create a business email, everything went to AOL. It became confusing at times, but one of the great things about AOL was the ability to keep things organized by creating folders. I'm shocked it still keeps email from when I first used it.

Cons

I wish it would accept large files, and have the capability of sharing them. I still remember when there was AOL Broadband. That was my first introduction to high-speed Internet. $60 per month was costly, but it was worth it. Still saddened by the fact they got rid of it. If AOL Broadband was brought back, I'd be the first to get it.
