How do you deactivate an old aim email account? I still use the screen name but I no longer use the aim email. It was deactivated but I did something to reverse that, but now I would like to deactivate it again, no clue what I originally did. Thanks!!

Maybe it was all just a mistake. What were you thinking when you chose that screen name for your AIM Mail account?

But however appalling your mistake may be, it is easily matched by AOL's: they forgot to include a way to close your AIM Mail account and cancel the screen name. No matter why you want to get rid of your AIM Mail account, to a certain extent you're stuck with it.

Fortunately, you can virtually erase it. Delete all personal information as well as all existing emails, and have an auto-responder let senders know about your new preferred address.

After you have not logged on to your AIM Mail account for six months, it will be deleted automatically.
