Ever get an email from AOL, but weren't quite sure it was really from AOL? Well, there's a quick and easy way to identify official - and legitimate - email from AOL. It's marked as AOL Certified Mail.


AOL Certified Mail is official email from AOL.

You can easily identify AOL Certified Mail in your inbox by the green ribbon in-between the sender and the subject of the message.

If you open the email, you'll also see the Certified Mail banner above the message details.

Without these two indicators, any email claiming to be from AOL is fake and is a phishing email - a scam email hoping you'll provide personal information or click links. If you receive a suspicious email, please forward the email to aol_phish@abuse.aol.com
