AOL automatically categorizes mail, and one of the categories is mail from people you know: messages from addresses in your AOL address book or from people on your Buddy list (plus the inevitable AOL mail like "Official AOL Mail" and voice mail). With just two clicks, you can concentrate on these emails in your Mailbox and hide all other mail temporarily.
Read Mail from People You Know First in AOL
To see only messages from people you know in AOL:
- Open your Mailbox by selecting Read from the AOL toolbar.
- Locate Show me mail from in your Mailbox (just above your messages).
- Click on Everyone.
- Select People I Know from the menu that pops up.
You can switch back to AOL displaying all messages by selecting Everyone from the Show me mail from menu again.
