See that AOL email address? Yeah, that doesn’t exist. It’s an advertisement in AIM. When I click on it, a browser opens and takes me to the signup page for AOL Mail.
What’s really annoying is that sometimes this will pop up by itself, when I don’t even have mail in my actual email account.
I have always used AIM’s mail alert feature, so I wouldn’t have to leave Outlook open, but if this stupidity keeps up I guess I’ll have to turn it off. My OCD won’t put up with it. It’s like a blinking AIM window; it’ll drive me nuts until I can make it go away somehow.
