AOL Free E-mail Domains
The latest move in AOL's large-scale transition from Internet access provider to ad-supported content host was announced today. In addition to previous news that AOL would give away free aol.com e-mail addresses, the company said its new AOL My eAddress would let users register an available .com or .net domain for up to 100 e-mail accounts on a given domain. Furthermore, these same e-mail addresses have 2 GB of storage each and can be used for AIM and any other AOL services. The one caveat is that the domains can't be used outside for websites or other Internet content while they remain registered at AOL. My eAddress is officially available in September.
