The Danger of AOL and Other Free Email Services

Since AOL has become a free service, they have been attaching graphic advertising at the bottom. Most of the other freebies do as well.

Why is this a problem? Many editors and agents clearly state in their guidelines that they delete any email unread that has an attachment.

Others in the business have spam filters which will probably delete your email when it arrives.

If you want your query or submission read, use a paid email service that doesn’t attach ads.
