AOL is a popular American company that provides free webmail service to Internet users.  Before going into detail about the AOL Mail Login steps, we’ll first see about the features that AOL.com mail offers to its users.

Once you signup for AOL Mail, you will get unlimited storage space to save all your mails without the need of deleting it weekly.  They also allow users to send attachments of size up to 25MB while emailing as well.  Some of the other features that you’ll get once you sign up for AOL Mail are virus scanning, spam protection and spell checking.

Users who like to access the aol mail home page from their PC or MAC using webmail programs such as Apple Mail, Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird can do so easily because AOL webmail supports the feature of sending and receiving mail using IMAP and POP3 settings.

  1. To access the AOL Mail Login page just visit http://mail.aol.com.
  1. You will see two empty boxes, one for username or email and one for entering your AOL webmail password.
  1. Now hit the “Sign In” button to login to AOL Mail page.
  1. In case you want to save your password and username of the AOL Mail Login page, then select the “Remember Me” check box ahead of clicking the “Sign In” button.
  1. Some browsers may popup a security alert message, just click yes or OK to continue with the AOL Mail Login process.

If you have forgotten your AOL Mail Login password, then please click on the “Forgot password” and follow the simple instructions to reset your AOL password.

AOL.com mail login guest:

If you like to login to AOL mail as a guest, then just follow the steps.

  1. First download the AOL webmail software by visiting http://daol.aol.com/software/90vr.
  1. Install it on your PC or MAC and launch the application.
  1. Choose Guest from the Screen Name drop-down menu.
  1. Now just enter your AOL screen name in the “Enter Screen Name” box and AOL password in the “Enter Password” box.

The above AOL.com mail login guest step will help you login to your AOL mail from another computer as if you were on your own computer.

Hope the above given AOL Mail Login and AOL.com mail login guest steps helps you login to AOL webmail successfully.

Check AOL mail without AOL:

You can easily check out your AOL mail without actually visiting the aol.com mail page by just installing an email notifier program on your desktop.  Email notifier program is easy to set up and you’ll have it running in minutes.

An Email notification program also alerts you whenever you have new messages.  So you’ll have the freedom to do what you want without you having to keep an eye over your inbox 24/7.  You can read, reply and delete messages quickly and easily in a secure way, and thus, you’ll be protected from messages that contain viruses and spyware.

In addition, you can also backup all your emails to your computer hard disk and restore it in future when needed.

AOL Mail Gets New Look:

AOL has finally unveiled a new fresh look to its AOL Mail service, the first major redesign since 2007.  The new design has been rolled out to all 24 million loyal AOL Mail users, so they get new experience with their email. The new AOL Mail design offers better user interface with the integration to services like messaging and text.

In addition, the AIM, events, contacts, as well as to-do lists are now located in a single place.  The new version also boasts easier to read icons and fonts, as well as new themes and customization options are also been included in the newer AOL Mail.  As part of this new redesign AOL has also expanded the AOL screen namespace, so now users can get the user name they wanted and won’t be stuck with an email address that includes a random string of numbers at the end.

Finally, AOL has also redesigned the placement and size of the advertising on the new AOL Mail version.  Now Ads appear on the right side of the mail window, which looks clean and performs much better than the old Mail design.  The chat window has now been shifted from right to the left side.

  2. I have been trying unsuccessfully for about a week to log into my e-mail. Have tried to reset my passcode — followed the instructions with the right information — it will not let me in. It comes back with the message “does not match our information”. I have tried repeatedly, with no success. Can anyone help me??? Any help would be appreciated. Betty Stevens

  4. Jennie Wyatt says:

  11. vicky hyde says:

    i haven’t been able to get into my aol e-amil for at least a month. when i try to log in, my computer freezes up and it won’t go any farther. had problems with logging in months ago also. i guess enough people have to complain before they do anything. that’s whyu i don’t really use them for anything important since i have so much trouble with it. maybe they don’t care because it’s free. but at one time i used aol, paid every month and still had problems. apparently they JUST DON’T CARE!!

  12. Savvy Chick says:

    Did you tried log in to your aol mail account using another computer? Also, try to scan your computer for viruses using a good anti-virus software. Sometimes, there might be a problem with your browser so reinstall your operating system/browser and then try to log in again.

  13. Joan Hemmer says:

    I can get the sound on the flip video but I cannot get the video itself. why?

  14. Savvy Chick says:

    Do you mean on a flip video player?

  15. Felton Eaddy says:

    Sounds similar to my problem. All was fine until I accepted the new AOL and amnesia set in: I’m a stranger. No longer is my password recognized, nor am I allowed to change passwords. When I use a browser to access mail, I have no address book.

  16. Savvy Chick says:

    Have you tried login using different browsers?

  17. have been trying to get into mye-mail. forgot my security question

  18. Savvy Chick says:

    Maybe you should try resetting the pwd by selecting the “Billing Information” option !

  25. Rich says:

    I cannot get past AOL Automatic Password pop-up to access my e-mails. I do what the pop says and nothing happens. When I hit DONE. The screen jumps like it is evading me. I cannot get into my account to change password or security question. This happened in December and somehow was resolved. It happened again today, shortly after I did a computer Clean Up. This is frustrating. I am a non-paying AOL user so no tech support is available to me. I am losing money and time by not being able to access vital e-mails. Please help.

  26. Savvy Chick says:

    Do you get this problem when you access aol mail from a different computer? Also, you’ve mentioned that you did a computer clean up, sometimes this might also be the reason for you not able to access your emails.

  27. Maryann says:

  32. iampoolmom says:

    I am getting compuserve as my email carrier and also have aol.com email. The one I want is the Aol.com without the compuserve carrier. Any suggestions ?

  33. Savvy Chick says:

    Why not use your mobile to access your emails?

  34. Hi iampoolmom. If you have compuserve and aol in your system. I will advice you to choose one, because the two softwares are almost equal. I am using aol as my mail carrier and the compuserve as my browser for scientifics’ web sites. You can do likewise.

    I have been with AOL since they took over another provider which I was registered with.They then merged or was taken over by TALKTALK. I have had endless problems with them in getting into my e-mail.This is the worse it has been. I have been trying for days and I have been asked to change user name and password over, about twenty times.I have reached my limit, it is so annoying, inconvenient and time consuming.When asked for my mobile number, and having submitted it ,it has constantly been rejected stating that it is not my number,What can Ido?HELP,HELP please.

  58. Marianne says:

    Guess I must be the lucky one…haven’t had a single problem with the new aol mail. In fact, I like the lay-out a lot better!
    My only annoyance is that the mail icon is gone from the aol home page…too many steps to get into my mailbox!

  61. michelle says:

    Cant get into my e-mail as of today, was working fine yesterday. called the AOL guru tech twice, they reset my password both times and told me to restart my computer and then try again. Still didnt work. Just want to check my email, been with AOL for nine years. They are kicking us non- payers off one by one. LOL

  62. jackson says:

    Cant get on line, cant check my e-mail, was told that I needed a new router, did that at the tune of sixtyfive dollars, still cant get on line. been with american on line for more than ten years, I hate to leave aol, but I want service.

  63. Jim Schultz says:

    I can not get onto aol.com–to get my mail or access my bill pay–or any of my favorites—I am connected but not signed on—I can access all of these through int. explorer or google chrome—How can I access aol directly, as i have for the last 7 years???

  64. Julie Helm says:

    I have been trying to get into the e-mail for over a week and I keep getting BLERP. What is the problem? Is there anyone else having this problem. I’ve been using AOL for over 15 years and have never had these problems.

  65. David says:

  67. June Bryant says:

    Every time I log off AOL, my computer crash dumps. That’s the only time it happens.

  68. Sarah says:

    Hi I’m having trouble logging into my email account (first time ever)! I noticed yesterday that I am recieving hundreds, maybe thousands of emails from people that I do not know, at every minute of the day……..I’m thinking that this is some kind of virus!! Yesterday, I deleted/marked as spam, 1,700+ of these awful emails, only to recieve a message saying that my sign-in got derailed! I’ve tried to login a few times today and keep getting the same message!

  69. Bruce814 says:

    I’ve had aol for years with very few problems. This year I have had problems accessing my e-mail and it looks like there are thousands who are having the same problem. I can’t access my mail at all now. Why do I pay for AOL????

  70. Ed says:

    We recently set up a WiFi system, which meant we had to have individual accounts on AOL, instead of the joint account we have had for many years. Now my wife finds that she can’t sign on as the owner on her own laptop: She has to sign on as a GUEST. I have tried to communicate with AOL to find a fix for this, but so far have had no success. If there’s someone out there smarter than me, could you give me a hint on how to fix this? Many thanks.

  71. TAYLOR says:
