The "old" AOL Mail

I was very comfortable with the "old" style AOL mail and can not get used to the new style.  Is there any way to return to the old way?  Most of my composed mail seems to go to "Draft" when I don't want it to and I could do more things with the old style much easier. Please help. Thanks.

this change is very hard on the eyes terrible overly large font, poorly thought out!

I agree.  The layout is horrible and the design is block-y.  It seems like a 1.0 version instead of something new!!  The ads on the side of the mail screen are the worst part!!  Please use the old layout and maybe you won't lose the remaining AOL customers!!  Here I come gmail!!!!

Terrible lay-out. I have already switched to Yahoo mail.
