Ellen, there is also a bargain rate of $9.95 per month which gives you 5
hours of time. If you don't do a lot of net-surfing, and don't mind checking
in to the list only one or twice a day to "flash send" and "flash download"
messages, this is a good economical way to go. You do lose the immediacy of
communication with the "flash" methods, but it is efficient--and gives you a
little more time to think about your reply before sending it!
Also, contrary to what a lot of folks have experienced, I'm pretty satisfied
with AOL's performance. There are some quirks occasionally here, but on the
whole, it has been reliable for me. I also appreciate the fact that they
attempt to intercept "junk e-mail"--not much gets through.
