AOL reverses course, returns iCloud email support to Alto

updated 04:13 pm EST, Mon December 23, 2013

Apologizes for 'confusion and frustration' caused by previous announcement

AOL will continue supporting iCloud on its Alto webmail service after all, according to an email sent to users. Alto lets people check multiple webmail services simultaneously, such as AOL, Gmail, and Yahoo. In October, however, AOL said it would halt support for email addresses ending in @icloud, @me, or @mac after December 2.

"Sorry for the hassle, especially if it led you to take action and remove accounts," AOL writes in its email. "The restored support for iCloud is permanent and you don't need to worry or wonder if it's going away or not. We regret the confusion & frustration, and sincerely appreciate your patience with our developing product."

    There was NO confusion, just frustration. Alto (as a whole entity) decided to stop supporting iCloud, did stop supporting it, and now has flipped and begun supporting it again.

    Why did they stop in the first place?
