How can I check the availability of an email address I wish to create on AOL Mail?
When you sign up for a free AOL Mail account, you need to create a Username. Your email address is the same as your Username, and it's your online identity.
To help you select your email address, AOL Mail has a feature that checks if the email address you want is available. If the Username you want is already taken, use one of the suggested email addresses which are available, or try variations of that email address. See the solution below for examples of the feature.
On the AOL Mail sign up page, when you enter your desired Username, we'll automatically check for its availability. If someone has already taken the Username that you want, suggestions will be listed for you to pick from.
Have fun creating a great Username/email address. Good luck!
