The Email panel on AOL email on the web allows you to quickly access your email and email folders while in the Today, Email, Calendar and Addresses views. This flexibility makes it easy for you to read your email while looking at your calendar, top news stories, and more.
If you are on the Today or Email view, the Email panel will show the folder list. To show the contents of the folder, click the folder name. Also available is an Edit Folders link at the top, where you can make changes to your email folders.
If you are on the Addresses or Calendar tabs, the Email panel will show a list of the emails in your new email folder (or inbox, depending on your settings). In this view you will see who the sender is, the date it was received, and the subject. If you wish to read an email, click the subject of the email. Also available is a Write Email link to send a new email.
