20 Years Ago on AOL.com: Dec. 18, 1998 -- Does "You've Got Mail" Deliver?

December 18, 1998: You've Got Mail finally opened, which means we could finally stop promoting it. The other text promos include another riff on the infamous spam headline, "Make Money Fast," and a rhyme for cards, flowers, and candy.

In the news headline, we see that the House of Representatives began the Clinton impeachment debate. Not captured in the headline: Speaker-Designate of the House Bob Livington also admitted to his own marital infidelity. (He would later step down.)
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the AOL.com home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
