AOL rolled out new features earlier this week to its AOL and AIM Mail, saying it plans to continue to improve the service through the upcoming months. Among the enhancements are “quick actions,” which allow the user to perform common actions with one click, and new panels that allow for simultaneous access of Calendar, Address Book and Tasks while working within the AIM or AOL Mail client.
The new Web mail client also provides tighter integration with AOL Calendar, allowing for users to create and manage events or tasks within the service. Finally, AOL Mail will now allow for the linking of up to eight AOL or AIM email addresses to a single mail account, without having to log in separately to check each account. Each address would be displayed in a pull down menu with the number of e-mail messages, AOL said.
