What the heck â€“ I donâ€™t have AIM/AOL email! I have had the same AIM login for the last 7-8 years. (I really donâ€™t even know how long I have had it.) It is a AIM address not an email address. It never has been.)
However, AIM seems to have silently upgraded all users to a free @AIM.com email address. This is complete with 2GB of storage, a pretty nice looking webclient, and an interesting sounding â€œunsendâ€ option to other AOL or AIM addresses. (I am guessing too many AOL users drunkenly sent emails and then called tech support looking for the Unsend option.
I have no confirmation yet if this really did happen to all uses, but I know I never signed up for it. I already have enough 2GB free email accounts. Between Live Mail and Gmail â€“ AIM mail is just over-kill for me. Yet, I know that there are a bunch of people out there who will enjoy this new feature.
Soâ€¦ if you still have an AIM address out there â€“ try logging in and seeing if your account has had this addition.
