MINDSPRING INTRODUCES NEW INTERNET SOFTWARE SUITE FOR MACINTOSH

ATLANTA (March 23, 1999) - MindSpring Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq:MSPG)
today announced it has released MindSpring version 4.0 Internet
Software for the Mac OS. This is MindSpring's first major upgrade of
its Macintosh software since June 1996.

The suite includes the Microsoft Internet Explorer Web browser,
Microsoft Outlook Express for e-mail and news, and Fetch for file
transfers. The access panel is a customized version of Gearbox by
Rockstar Software, which provides a single starting point for
Internet access. GearBox integrates into a single interface the tools
used to connect the customer's modem to the Internet, report the
status of their email, manage configuration settings and diagnose
technical problems. It also displays MindSpring's current "Message of
the Day".

"We are certain our Mac customers will appreciate the features we
have incorporated into this suite," said Mike Strutton, senior
product manager, consumer access for MindSpring. "The Mac OS is known
for its ease-of-use and stability. This suite capitalizes on those
capabilities so well that it will bowl over both new and experienced
Mac users."

"In Mac OS 8.5 and our new hardware products we're delivering the
industry's easiest Internet set-up experience B with over 80 percent
of iMac buyers already surfing the Internet," said Clent Richardson,
Apple's vice president of worldwide developer relations. "Having
companies like MindSpring deliver a solid suite of Mac Internet
products increases consumer choice and makes Macintosh an even more
compelling platform for anyone who wants to experience the excitement
of the Internet."

The software is currently being distributed to new MindSpring
customers, who can sign up online (http://www.mindspring.net) or by
calling 1-888-MSPRING. An upgrade for current customers is available
by download or upgrade CD-ROM at
(http://www.mindspring.net/prod-svc/download/center/mac_downloads/index. html).
