    spechackers,

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. How do you have an account with them if you are not a member? How do you expect to use their webmail system if you are not a member?

    I think he means he has AIM and can't log into the AIM webmail.

    spechackers,

    If you are referring to AIM, then your best bet is to contact AOL/AIM support direct.

    Yeah I think thats what he means is, he's got an AIM screename. I think you have to sign up separately for webmail - i'm not sure but i don't think AOL webmail is free :|

    um...No aol is not free. Yes, they give you an aim username and an e-mail to go with the aim e-mail. I doubt the e-mail address will end with @aol.com
    Maybe it will end with @aimweb.com or @aolweb.com

    If you want AOL free, just sign up for their service (free month), then cancel at end of month, well try. They will usually ask you to try it free for a month. I know a few people who have had it "free" for over 2 years now.

    I'd never want AOL. Don't see why anyone would want it.

    You see the thing about trying aol for free is that, when you tried to cancel, they offer you 2 more free months. And then when you tried to cancel after those 2 months, they offer for 2 months more free.
    Been there done that. I was canceling a free 3 months service I got for buying a product at a store: compUSA

    AIM Mail lets you...

    # Clone yourself, in a good way

    You only have to log in once to access both your AIM Mail and your IM.

    # Hoard for sentimental reasons

    Your AIM Mail has 2GBs of storage. Save anything and everything that matters.

    # Exude that confident glow

    We've got you covered with industry-leading spam and anti-virus protection.

    # Be spontaneous

    If an email sender is available on IM, you can reply with either IM or AIM Mail.

    # Preserve important relationships

    Have second thoughts about that email you just sent to an AOL or AIM address? Then unsend it - unless it's been opened, in which case you're on your own.

    # Secretly indulge in obsessive behavior

    Check to see if an email you've sent has been read by its recipient. Check again. And again. Sometimes this is very useful. Sometimes it's dangerous.

    Looks like free AIM mail is trying to compete with Gmail. Havn't used it yet and don't plan to.
