Guy who voiced AOL's ‘You've Got Mail' could be your next Uber driver

Elwood Edwards used to say "you've got mail," but these days he might give you a ride.

Edwards, the voice of AOL mail greetings, is now an Uber driver in Ohio. Twitter user Brandee Barker recently rediscovered him while canvassing the state in support of Hillary Clinton and shared a video of Edwards saying his signature phrase.


 

In the 80s, Edward's wife, who was working at Quantum Computer Services at the time, recorded his voice on a cassette in their living room. The recording, a test tape, was accepted and has since become recognizable to nearly anyone who used the Internet in the 90s (or watched a certain Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks film).
