According to international reports, AOL Inc. is now redesigning their e-mail program to be faster and easier to use. Its new Web-based email program was named Project Phoenix. However, this program is only limited to a number of users.

The Project Phoenix inbox page was said to be designed to make it easier for its users to fire off a quick e-mail, text or instant message with just a few clicks on a “quick bar” at the top of the page.

With this program, users can send short replies from their inbox page without clicking on the message. Also, it displays thumbnails of recent photo attachments. When a user is reading their message with pictures attached, the photos will automatically show up as thumbnails next to the message.

Reports said that AOL is trying to become the top one-stop shop for reading messages from other providers. The Project Phoenix allow users to link up their e-mail accounts on services from Microsoft Corp., Yahoo Inc. and Google Inc. AOL also has future plans to pull in Facebook, LinkedIn messages and Twitter.

The beta test site will be available starting next year.
