If you get a lot of unwanted junk email or 'spam', remember that AOL offers easy-to-use email controls to let you specify who can or can't send you email. To access email controls, sign-on to AOL and visit Keyword Email Controls.
And here's another tip: if you use chat rooms a lot, consider creating a separate screen name specially for chatting. (Generally speaking, the more you use public areas of the internet, such as chat rooms, the more junk email you'll receive)
More information about blocking junk email can be found when you sign on to AOL and visit Keyword: Spam.
