To read email without distractions, you can temporarily hide ads and give ad feedback. Permanently remove ads by purchasing an Ad-Free AOL Mail subscription.

Free AOL Mail experience

Paid ads are advertisements that promote products or services unrelated to AOL. With Ad-Free AOL Mail, you’ll no longer see these paid ads, but you may see promotions for AOL products and brands. We want to ensure you receive our latest product news and info.

Types of ads you'll see

Ads in empty folders - Ads will appear in folders containing no emails in the webmail interface.
Ads in the right column - These ads appear on the right side of your emails in the webmail interface.
Inline ads - These banner ads appear above the emails in your Inbox and other folders. They'll have an "AD" label next to them.

Ad-Free AOL Mail will not remove ads from the sign-in screen or the main AOL page. It also won't affect spam, subscribed advertising emails, or AOL product ads.

Temporarily hide ads and give ad feedback

Click the X on ads in the right column to temporarily remove that specific ad and provide feedback. If you opt out of a certain advertiser, a new ad will appear next time you refresh your page.

Ad-Free experience in AOL Mail

At this time, Ad-Free AOL Mail is only available when checking email on the web from your computer. If you access AOL Mail using the AOL Desktop software or your mobile device, you will continue to see paid advertising.

Seeing popups after purchasing Ad-Free AOL Mail?
