That's why we're introducing our new "Readability Mode!" Simply put, it makes things bigger and easier to read inside AOL Mail.
Like so: If you decide that you'd like more space to compose a certain email just click the expand button to switch to the original full-pane mode.
Like so: You can set "Pop-Up" as your default compose mode on the "Compose" page in Mail Settings.
Try it out by checking the box next to "Enable readability mode" in Mail Settings and don't forget to click the "Save Settings" button after you do.
Like so: We hope you like the new functionality and we always appreciate your feedback (the good, the bad and the ugly). Have you ever composed an email and realized midway through that you needed information from another email before you could send it? Well it happens to us all the time, which is why we're so excited to bring you "Pop-Up Compose." A new way to compose email that allows you to peruse your inbox, even open up other emails, without having to close the email you are currently composing.
Included as well is the popular messaging program, AOL Instant Messenger.
Also known as AIM, this is arguably one of the longest running and most popular instant messaging programs on the internet to this day.
We’ve streamlined the installer, giving it a new look, improved messaging, and helpful tips!
We updated search, providing a super clean experience and convenient auto-complete functionality.
That should change once more people find out about it.
Owl fits neatly into Aol’s plan to create as much content as possible on current topics or evergreen interests so that it can throw more ads against those Web pages.
