    He got the AOL job because his wife worked for the company.
    His most famous message is grammatically incorrect: it should be 'You have mail.'
    He started a business selling personalized greetings for AOL users.
    He and his wife exchanged vows in a 'virtual wedding' before their real world wedding.
    'You've got mail' was named the 5th top quote of the past quarter century in USA Today's 25th anniversary issue (2007).
    For a Simpsons episode, he provided the voice of a virtual doctor, announcing 'You've got leprosy.'
    Although AOL offered the option of having 'You've got mail' delivered by various celebs, 80% of their customers stuck by Edwards.
    He said, 'I'm pleased that I've had a small part in making the computer world smaller and more personable.'
