How to Forward AOL Mail

Updated February 21, 2017

With the emergence of popular and effective e-mail programs throughout the Internet, the original AOL has become a thing of the past for many. Forwarding AOL mail to different e-mail accounts allows you to keep up with stores, friends or businesses that are still using your AOL account without telling them to change it.

Open your AOL e-mail account and enter your e-mail address and password to login.

Click the "Settings" tab at the top of your AOL e-mail home page.

Click "General Settings" and click the tab that reads "Forwarding."

Select the option that reads "Forward a copy of incoming mail to:" by clicking the dot in front of this option.

In the tab provided, enter the full address of the account to which you wish to forward your e-mail and click "Save Changes." Your e-mail will now be forwarded from your AOL account to the address you entered.
