AOL upgrades webmail service

Users get one-click access to Gmail and Yahoo mail

AOL has upgraded its webmail service to allow users to preview messages sent to their Gmail and Yahoo Mail accounts, as well as navigate straight to their inboxes with one click.

"We know that consumers today have multiple email accounts on different services to keep tabs on daily, and we want to make it easier for them. This is an important first step in opening up AOL Mail and gives users the ability to customise their inbox with content and services they use on a daily basis, regardless of where it lives," said Rohit Agarwal, head of innovation and marketing, AOL Europe.
