The images below are examples of the unified Inbox style. In this style, you will have Inbox, Sent, Spam, and Recently Deleted or Trash folder

  • AOL 9.6, AOL 9.5, or AOL 9.1

  • AOL Desktop v10.1

  • AOL WebMail

The images below are examples of the New/Old style. In this style you will have New, Old, Sent, Spam, and Recently Deleted folders.
