Note: Upgrade to the latest version of the AOL Desktop software to take advantage of great new features!
You can switch from the Inbox mailbox style (where all messages, both Read and Unread, stay in one place: the Inbox) to the New/Old mailbox style (where Unread messages appear within New, and Read messages go to Old).
You can also switch back again, anytime.
Note: If your email address ends with aim.com or if you created a new Username, you'll only be able to use the Inbox mailbox style.
1. Sign into AOL Mail. Then come back here, because we've got a link for you to click...
2. OK, click this link:http://inbox.aol.com/mail/changeMailboxStyle?style=auto
3. Click Switch to New/Old.
4. If applicable, once you get the confirmation, click X to close the window.
Note: You'll need to sign out then sign back in to apply the change.
5. Once you sign on using your AOL Username and password, this is how your mailbox would look:
AOL 9.6, AOL 9.5 or AOL 9.1
AOL Mail on the web
That's it! Enjoy.
