AOL recently updated the interface on the AOL.com site. That resulted in the mail page looking very different. If you do not want to keep the new look, you can return to the “old” look be taking a couple easy steps.
First, log into your AOL account online. Under your name in the upper right corner, click on Options. Within Options you will see a menu on the side. Click General, if not already highlighted. At the bottom of the page, look for Inbox Style. Check Use New/Old Style. Click to Save Changes at the bottom of the page. When you return to the Mail page you will see the changes.
