Silverlight-Powered AOL Mail Updated

Sign in to queue


AOL's Web mail beta, a rich internet application (RIA) which is powered by Microsoft Silverlight, has just been updated with a number of new features. Now, AOL Mail beta users can print out emails, add signatures to outgoing messages, flag and filter emails, open calendar and To Do items in a new windows, and get to turn on sounds, if desired, including the classic “You’ve Got Mail.” However, one of the best features – and one that really takes advantage of Silverlight – is the feature which lets users watch WMV-formatted videos received as email attachments in a Full Screen overlay that pops up right in the browser.

The AOL Mail Beta is expected to launch as an optional replacement for their standard email service later this year.
