You access your contacts on AOL Mail by clicking on the Contacts tab. This will open a list of all of your contacts and any folders that you have created (more on folders later). You can edit your contacts, add new ones, or delete unnecessary ones from this screen.

You can also access your contacts from the Compose window. When you are composing a new email, just click on the “To” field, and your contacts will pop up. You can then select the contact you want to email.

You can add, edit, update, and even delete the contacts on AOL Mail.
