AOL aims to integrate mail services with Phoenix

15 Nov 2010

AOL has announced a new email service that promises to be simple to use for a limited number of users.

Titled ‘Project Phoenix’, the mail service has been designed to make AOL more of an all rounder and aggregates users’ AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo! mail in once place.

With the new service, new toolbars have been put in place for accessing instant messaging, the ability to toggle between multiple concurrent emails, thumbnail photos of recent photo attachments, integrated maps, file attachments, as well as domain searches.

Invite only

Eager users must request an invite to use the service.

Project Phoenix comes quick on the heels of new web browser RockMelt – which allows the user to move through web pages, keep up with friends and search the internet.
