We're not satisfied until you're satisfied. In response to your feedback we're pleased to introduce some new features in AOL Webmail, and you can be the first to try them out! Experience them at http://beta.webmail.aol.com and as always, let us know what you think.
Create a Rich Text Signature & Set Your Default Font
Many of you have tried our stationery feature already. Here are other ways you can make your messages even more you! Below, you can see that I've designed my custom rich text signature, and added 1 of my favorite funny quotes...pun intended. I've also updated my font color to plum, just in time for the fall season. It should go perfectly with my Fall skin . If you like what you see, you can personalize both of these in Settings.
More and More Themes
Speaking of themes, I love the themes we have in our gallery and we've added even more to our selection! For example, there's a Football theme perfect for the football season; a Halloween theme for 1 of my favorite holidays just around the corner; and even a Doggy theme for the dog lover in all of us. But if you're like me and can't decide on just one, there's good news! Leave it up to chance and select "Use Random Theme." Every day is a new surprise.
Put up a Custom Away Message
For those of us lucky enough to have a planned vacation, we have the perfect solution to help you make everyone else jealous. You can now create your own custom response letting your friends know you're "busy" with life. For the rest of us, I guess we can keep dreaming.
Address Book Export
Many of us can't live without our address books, so why not keep it safe? They say "back up and back up often." You can now do the same with your address book. Simply go to Contacts to find the Export button, then choose from the 3 format options to get a backup copy of your address book.
Those are just a few highlights of what's over in Beta – discover more now
