How do I update a contact in AOL Mail?

Did one of your contacts change their address, phone number, or email address? You don't need to create a new contact, you can just edit their existing contact info.

To edit a contact:

1. In the left panel, click Contacts.


2. Click the contact that you'd like to edit.

3. Next to the picture/avatar or nickname of the contact, click the Edit link.


4. Things that you can edit:

  • The contacts first and last name
  • Their nickname
  • AIM Username
  • Email address (to add an alternate email address, click + Another)
  • Primary Phone number (to add an alternate phone number, click + Another)
  • Add them to a Category
  • To edit their Work, Home, or Personal information, click the Add More Details link.

5. Once you've made all your changes, click the Save button at the bottom.

All done. Easy peasy!
