Should I open the email if it says Official AOL Mail as the subject line?

If the words Official AOL Mail are in the message section only, it is NOT an Official AOL Mail. Unless the email has all three of the attributes outlined above, it is not Official AOL Mail. In addition to the three visual attributes, all Official AOL Mail will begin with the prefix AOL, followed by an individual name, e.g. AOLUKWelcome.

Note: If there is a Download Now and Download Later button in the email, then it is NOT Official AOL Mail.
