Does being a fan of using the discs as free frisbees count?

I've been on AOL since 1995 - started with their floppy disc. Then did AOL DSL until AT&T DSL was better and cheaper. Now I'm on AT&T Uverse, but I still pay $10 / month for AOL dial up as a backup. I have 2 old Dell E1705 laptops that I use on vacations and they have dial up modems so I use AOL dial up when I got to a Motel6.

One reason I keep AOL now is that I can have 7 screen names / emails and the mailbox can have a maximum of 5000 emails. Then the AOL Desktop 9.7 browser lets you save emails to selected folders on a hard drive. I don't know of any other email system this good.

Most email providers have options for POP3 or IMAP. Using an email client like Windows Live from 2009 which is what I recommend if it's set up for POP3 you download the email and it's stored locally but that may only be suitable for one computer. With the IMAP option it's stored locally and on the server. Your local storage is synced with the server.

Multiple options for archiving, saving or exporting emails....

Or you can just use Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo mail or 100's of other servers that give out email addresses for free. Gmail gives you 15 GB of mail storage for free in addition to the option to archive to your computer.

It amazes me that people still pay AOL a monthly fee.
Catdancer, here's a rub: AOL hands out free email addresses, too.
The only thing Jesse is REALLY paying for: backup dial up. Really Jesse?
CANCEL THAT! Throwing money away, man.
AOL does not charge for Email Addresses. AOL does not charge for that "Desktop Software" that you use. IT'S FREE.
All you are paying for is: DIAL UP! Motel 6 has Wifi, Jesse.
Time to cut AOL loose.

AOL isn't bad. But when someone asks me about AOL nowadays (no one actually does) I think of AOL.COM. Which is a good site. As good as Yahoo.

My bosses wife had been paying for an AOL account for YEARS. I said "why are you paying this?"
"Because I have an AOL Email address....."

AOL is making a LOT of money off of people that just don't know any better (no offense). They stopped charging for that stuff EONS ago in order to compete with Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail etc etc etc...And in fact they have one feature that no one else has in order to compete: no limit on space.
