Question Aol Mail (old and new formats)
I realize most people hate aol mail but I'm one of the few who still use it. Anyway my problem is that they started a new format where you could choose to view your new and old mail together instead of having seperate folders for each. I accidentaly clicked the link the popped up that asked me if I wanted it setup in the new format and now I cant figure out how to go back to the old format. I checked in the mail settings and cant find anything there. Can anyone else who uses aol mail help me out with this?

Good links above. I would not give up now free AOL setup as I have customized it mail for anything. You pick and chose the elements you want and you HAVE...those options. Their rotating carousel is worldclass and nobody else has anything lke it. Their software has options to repair itself without doing clean install.
Aned bite me, I do like (chose it) when I open AOL, Chis Rock greeting me! Too bad if anyone thinks this is for infants. I also like...keepng aOL open while dong other stuff....that an incoming mail generates a subtle little click.A lovely little audible heads up. Just fabulous.

I am tired of broad brush, simplistic dissing. I started using AOL I think, well after it was dissing worthy.--when I was still on dialup. Now with my broadband I retain my now free AOL in all my systems....I do wish people would be more discerning.

I also tried the new format....and got rid of it immediately and went back to the old in 9.0 Optimized.
