Everyone at AOL Time Warner may not be on the same page, but they'll all be on the same e-mail service soon - AOL e-mail, that is.
All 86,000 employees of AOL Time Warner have been notified of the new e-mail marching orders. The entire company will make the switch to the America Online e-mail service over the next three months, according to an AOL spokeswoman. AOL Time Warner's corporate headquarters and its Time Inc. division have begun making the switch in what is a unit-by-unit transition to AOL e-mail.
Meanwhile, the company has integrated all of its Web sites - Netscape.com, Time.com and Warner Bros. Online - into the same network infrastructure for cost efficiencies. These sites have started using a common toolbar that links to Netscape.com and features links to AOL Instant Messenger and Netscape's free e-mail. - Richard Tedesco
