Automatically add email addresses to my Address book

The AOL Address Book makes it easy to keep track of the screen names and email addresses you use most often. Addresses you send or forward email to are automatically stored in your Address Book so that the next time you send email or an instant message (for screen names only) you won't have to type the full address.

AOL recommends you to save or print a copy of this page for your future reference.
