Free personalised email domains from AOL

2GB of storage available

AOL will offer personalised email domains free to all web users starting in September, the company announced yesterday.

AOL is the first company to offer personalised email domains – for example, [email protected] – for free, the company said in a press release. The service will available through AOL.com.

Users will be able to use their personalised domain, called My eAddress, as an email address, as their AIM address to send and receive IM (instant messages) and as the address of their own personal web page on the free AIM Pages social networking service. The personal web page feature will be offered soon, AOL said.

The firm debuted a beta version of My eAddress in May, but it was open only to AOL subscribers.

The My eAddress service will include customised .com or .net email addresses, with up to 100 personalised email addresses with each domain. The service will also include spam and antivirus protection, 2GB of storage and an address book.

People who want to create an AOL screen name with the AOL.com domain can get one for free at the company's website. Members who cancelled within the past two years can reclaim their screen name or reset their password by signing into AOL Mail or AOL's software. Former members who don't remember their password but do know their account security question or former payment method will be able to reactivate their screen name.
