Some people think it would be nice to have their own name, but they are 'attached' to AOL. They don't want to change how they get their email.
I don't want to have to learn something new.
You don't have to. If you are stuck in that rut of "Nothing New For Me Please", you can still use a personal address and have the mail forwarded to your AOL address. Sure, your mail will still deliver as being from AOL, but one step at a time.
