Not sure why anyone still uses AOL e-mail when Gmail is readily available for free! It's AWESOME, try it out, you will most likely never want to use anything else.

I know I know. :eek: I'm on it. I have had my email at AOL for 15 years. I remember when we use to pay for it!

Plus that I have many friends all over the world that use IM on AOL.

I set up two accounts and all mail from AOL has been imported.:D I'm liking it over there, guys! Owe it all to you, Danny!


Can anyone tell me how to have one email sent to all contacts telling them about my new email?

And how to have email sent to AOL automatically forwarded to gmail? Is that even possible?

AOL won't forward my mail:( And I cant delete the accounts without my Master Screen name that I have not used in 20 years!

:mad:


But I have my new Google accounts ~ I just need to get them on my Blackberry and my iPad.

You can keep using aim if you want to chat...also try contacting customer support to get to that years old account so you can set up forwarding... Via aim I thing you can change the email association..

Yeah. I figured I would still keep AIM. I did jot down the number to customer support when I was putting all this together in the middle of the night.

Thanks, B.:)

This surprises me. I know that one day, we will get virus and hacking attacks, but thought for the moment on iOS devices at least we were relatively safe. Are you certain it was your iPad? If so, I'm pretty sure Apple would very much like to know about it. Keep us posted!
