How do I create a free AOL Mail email address?

Looking to sign up for a free AOL Mail email address? Sweet! Signing up is a snap.

Note: Your AOL Username is your online identity. Your Username, which is the first part of your email address, is visible to everyone when you communicate with others online. Your Username will appear in email, on your AIM Buddy List, in instant messages and in message posts.

To create a free AOL Mail email address:

1. Visit our Create a New Account page.

2. Enter your first and last name in the appropriate boxes.

3. Now the fun part - time to pick your email address! Enter a Username in the 'Pick a username' box.

Note: If the Username that you've selected is already taken, we'll suggest a couple of variations of the Username that you want.

4. In the 'Create a password' box, enter a password for your account and then re-type the password in the box below it.

5. Enter your Date of birth, Gender, and Zip code in the next three boxes.

6. Select a Security Question from the drop-down menu and then enter the answer in the box provided below the drop-down menu.

7. Enter a Mobile phone number and Alternate email address in the boxes provided. We'll only use these to help recover your account if you need to reset your password.

8. Click Signup.

9. Almost done! In the text box, type the 6-digit code that we sent as a text message to the mobile phone number that you provided and then click Finish.

Congratulations! We hope you enjoy your new AOL Mail email account!
