AOL Now Aggregates Email from Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo

In a refreshing show of humility and honesty, AOL has admitted that perhaps visitors to do not necessarily have at the end of their email addresses.

So, they’ve enabled users to aggregate their email from Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo on the homepage.

“With the launch of mail aggregation, AOL will be the first among the big traditional portals to offer a centralized email experience,” commented Bill Wilson, Executive Vice President of Programming, AOL. “We know that consumers today have multiple email accounts on different services to keep tabs on daily, and we want to make it easier for them. This is an important first step in opening up and giving users the ability to populate the homepage with content and services they use on a daily basis, regardless of where it lives.”

Of course, you can do the same on iGoogle, but the applications were developed by third parties.
