AOL introduces free Email
This morning Marketing Vox announced that AOL has finally done away with their paid-member email services and they have introduced free web-based email. In doing so, they are hoping to compete with Google, Yahoo and MSN, all of which offer free email.
AOL is offering 2 gigabytes storage with each email account in addition to virus and spam protection. The email will go hand-in-hand with AOL’s instant messenging and will allow you to log in with the same account name and password as you use for AOL IM.
More big news is that this summer, AOL said it will release unlimited email account storage. To put this in perspective, Google offers about 2 GB, Yahoo only offers 1 GB and Hotmail offers 250 MB.
