Mail’s address field is auto-populated as you type with addresses from Contacts (formerly Address Book) as well as addresses you’ve previously sent and received email from. There’s no one-click way to clear all of those out, but you can remove them one by one — handy if you, say, tried to send a message to a misspelled address and that misspelling keeps coming up as an option.
AOL isn't exactly the first name in innovative web services anymore, so I was surprised when I was asked to check out a new web-based email client designed to "bring visual relief to overloaded inboxes."
Admittedly, I wasn't expecting much, but Alto is every bit the radical email overhaul AOL says it is. From its vibrant, distinctive interface to its clever handling of message threads and attachments, Alto is like no other email client I have ever used. It's so different, it doesn't just feel like a new email client, it feels like a whole new form of communication.
