My secondary acct is aol.  When I compose a letter from my aol acct and send it to someone my address shows as comcast not aol.  How do I overcome this problem?  I want my email to have an aol address.

Re: email

You need to clarify what it is you are doing.  Are you saying that when you sign into your AOL account using a browser, and compose an email, the recipient sees your Comcast email address?  Did you add the AOL account to the Comcast one as an outside account using the mail-fetching feature in your Preferences?  Or are you using an email client like Outlook, or Thunderbird or something like that?
