Get Access to Gmail, Yahoo! Mail from AOL

aolAOL has rolled out a new version of Web Mail with enhancements to compete with web-based email majors like Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Hotmail. New plugins for connecting to third-party email rivals Gmail and Yahoo! Mail have been added along with a bunch of other new plugins. The AOL Sync function has been added and a plugin gallery has been rolled out.  Check out the new AOL Web Mail at the AOL Mail page.

New plugins will allow access to Gmail and Yahoo! Mail from the AOL Web Mail account. Following in Google’s footsteps of adding themes on Gmail, AOL now has added 45 new skins to their email. Microsoft had also added new themes to their Windows Live Mail.

The new plugin gallery will allow for one-click access to different services, and the platform is also open to third-party developers for developing more plugins for Web Mail.

Real-time update support to AOL Calendar and the Address book can now be provided though the desktop-based application or via wireless mobile devices.

The novelty of accessing Gmail and Yahoo! Mail from the AOL Web Mail account may appear cool at the moment, but let’s not overlook the security aspect of it. It’s too early to say whether these plugins are completely secure as AOL has opened their mail platform to third-party content and applications.

    • Hi William,
      The plugins should be secured. I don’t think AOL will take a chance.

      Cheers!
