AOL may send you emails from time to time about products or features we think you'd be interested in. If you're ever concerned about the legitimacy of these emails, just check to see if there's a green "AOL Certified Mail" icon beside the sender name.
When you open the email, you'll also see the Certified Mail banner above the message details.
When you get a message that seems to be from AOL, but it doesn't have those 2 indicators, and it isn't alternatively marked as AOL Official Mail, it might be a fake email. Make sure you mark it as spam and don't click on any links in the email.
