AOL resumed e-mail service at 3 a.m., EST, following a system crash yesterday morning that left millions of messages stuck in a queue. AOL-which had asked e-mailers to refrain from using the system until it corrected the problem-asked e-mailers to stagger e-mails today.

Yesterday’s system failure affected both AOL.com e-mail for paid subscribers and its free AIM.com service.

As of March 31, AOL had 18.6 million U.S. subscribers and 43 million active users of its AIM instant-messaging service.
