CNET has learned details on a limited beta release of AOL’s mail update, called “Project Phoenix” which will update AOL’s email interface. The new system, expected to be available to all users some time in 2011, will also offer users a number of choices from different domains instead of the dreaded AOL.com domain: ygm.com (an abbreviation of its classic “you’ve got mail”), love.com, wow.com, and games.com. AOL said in the announcement that mail accounts for 45 percent of its page views. Facebook is said to announce a new email service today, as reported by TechCrunch, going hand in hand with their purchase of fb.com.
