Elwood Edwards did the voice for the AOL sound files (i.e. "You've got Mail!"). He is heard about 27 million times a day. The recordings were done before Quantum changed its name to AOL and the program was known as "Q-Link."

Does he get paid a lot? Like, everytime someone checks their mail, he gets 5 cents?

I feel sorry for his kids, then. That voice isn't a cool one like Movie Phone guy. I bet the kids at school make fun of them.

lol! I doubt any of them know his name, I just magically came upon that little fact. Now kids will tease the kids about him. hehe.

But he might be pretty rich.

Alas, i accidently spoiled a popular TV show, and even my apology elicited bitchy response, so i said au revoir.

lol, I know, right? Seriously, it is SO hard to keep up with my friends page with that damn group on there. I do like it for the most part though.

And for the record, I'm glad you posted it because the AOL page wouldn't load and I wanted to know who went home. lol

well it's not the first time I've been offended by the snarkiness of people. i'm okay with gentle joshing, particularly when a stupid question is raised, but in general i'm like "get a life." i might rejoin later. when i get bored. hee hee.

I have to admit that I beat the crap out of a keyboard once, but the thing totally had it coming. But that guy..."You've got Pink Slip!".
