Hi AOL User,

Our community and vision for your mail experience have grown significantly, so we’re updating our Terms of Service, Payments Terms of Service, and Privacy Policy (collectively, “Terms”). The Terms will go into effect for all existing users on May 21 , 2019. When you use AOL on or after that day, we’ll ask you to agree to the new Terms of Service and your continued use of the AOL Platform from that day on will be subject to the new Privacy Policy.

Due to our new Terms, we will be closing all email address using our old services. This simply means your email account will be discontinued (closed) after May 21 , 2019.

If you wish to continue using our email services please accept our new terms to avoid mail closure.

You can review the new Terms by clicking here. We’ve also put up information to explain these changes in more detail on our Terms of Service Update page. Both the old and new versions of the Terms can be found at the Terms of Service, Payments Terms of Service, and Privacy Policy, tabs through May 21, 2019. You should review these Terms in full yourself.

Thank you for being a member of our mail community.

Thanks,

The AOL Team
