Posted Apr 03rd 2017 07:24PM by Dave Buck
Have you ever composed an email and realized midway through that you needed information from another email before you could send it? An address, maybe?

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. 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. You can get to Mail Settings from the "Options" menu in the top right corner of AOL Mail.

We hope you like the new functionality and we always appreciate your feedback (the good, the bad and the ugly). Tell us what you think right here.

Customize Your AOL Inbox By Reordering Your Columns!

Do you ever wish the trash can icon was closer to the left so you could reach it easier? Or that the flag column was all the way to the right because you never use it?

There's no single column order that is going to be liked by everybody (believe us, we've tried!) so we're giving the power of customization to all of you! To use it is easy. Just click and hold the header of the column you'd like to move, drag it to where you'd like to place it, and let go. Like so:



Or like so:



And that's not all! You can also expand the size of the "From" column by clicking the right edge of its header and dragging it to the right, like so:



Some of you may have noticed that a portion of the message text is now showing to the right of the subject in the Subject column. If you prefer not to see this text just head to the Customize menu and uncheck "Show Message Preview".



If at any time you'd like to reset your columns to the default setting simply go to the Customize menu and select "Reset Columns".



We hope you like the new functionality and we always appreciate your feedback (the good, the bad and the ugly). Tell us what you think right here.
