AOL email Contact List automatically filling up

My AOL email Contact List keeps filling up with what appears to be computer generated email addresses. Does anyone now how this is happening. Additionally, it appears that my AOL email address is being used to send mass emails targeted to Craigslist.com

More Questions

Contacts List missing

There is an AOL Help article for Address Book is Missing. Aside from the obvious (you are in the right Username, displaying all contacts) the suggestion that helped me was to delete the screenname.abi and screenname.aby files. http://help.aol.com/help/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc ...

Automatic email forwarding

Forwarding is not available by an AOL setting. But many mail systems (like Outlook or Mac Mail) can use POP3 or IMAP to collect your AOL mail, although it may have delays of perhaps 5 or 10 minutes. IMAP leaves your mail on the AOL server, so you can get it in more than one place.

How do I automatically forward aol emails to a gmail account?

There is no method provided for you to have your AOL mail forwarded to another address as a "push". You can use IMAP or POP3 as a "pull" method to read your AOL mail from Outlook or gmail or several other mail readers. For that you can use AOL Help and look up IMAP for the details.
