  2. AOL hopelessly radical left leaning...

    After being a subscriber for over 25 years, I must say I am utterly disappointed that AOL has become so LIBERAL...it is one thing to lean left, but to provide statistics based on their opinion is not worthy of them. I only wish they would get back to reporting facts and at least, try to stay neutral politically....half the country is conservative, some how they cannot accept that FACT!!

  3. SPAM

    Help. I am deleting 20-50 SPAM emails a day. As a customer, I do not pay a monthly subscription to help you delete SPAM. AOL has done better in the past regarding bad email's. Especially the same addresses being delivered over & over to our mailboxes. Thanks and please help.

  7. Please remove the

    Please remove the added information on everyone in my address list. I do not need to see how many emails I have shared with this person and I do not need to see what the subject of our last email was posted. I also do not need to see photos posted in this address list. I find this very intrusive and was done without my approval. Also just because I have the last name of some of my contacts does not mean we are related.
    I dislike this new feature you have forced upon me. There was no way to…

  12. Blocking unwanted email, spam,

    Blocked mail needs to be able not only to block the original send but also the regenerated spam with just slightly changing the address. Example is ABC@85lincon.com to ABC@86lincon.com. The option that would work could be @lincon.com that you could manually enter.

  13. How do I actually contact AOL? This forum is ridiculous and totally worthless. AOL doesn't see these posts.

    How do I reach a human at AOL and get a response? How do I even get the reply to this post if there is one? This entire communication process is flawed and totally and completely worthless.

  15. Add-Free Email Doesn't Work

    I activated Add-Free Email for one of my ...@aol.com email address. Yet just today so far I have received 85 advertisement email and it is not even 3:30 pm. Run, don't walk from AoL. Start looking for other email providers. I am. I have tried to get AoL to better serve their customers by addressing spam/phishing emails and they have done NOTHING.

  16. AOL 800# TECH SUPPORT ACTUALLY MAKE PROBLEMS WORSE. READ BELOW

    AOL 800# Tech support is all foreign based so AOL Corporate officers can maximize their pay. AOL Tech Support usually creates more damage and make problems worse. AOL continues to utilize an idiotic, problematic browser arrangement that needs continuous reworking and updating. Their main default, workaround and fallback is to Reload the AOL Gold program via BOMGAR session, which most always causes loss of your AOL program-open settings and loss of all your personal TOOL-BAR settings and Icons which you have placed there, but, of course, always retrains the AOL commercial Icons, which actually can, and should be deleted. These…

  17. Duplicate Names

    I have had my aol.com email name since joining in the 1990's. until a few years ago some one else has my same e-address but not password which is of little comfort since I can trace her name, home address, city and state etc on the dark web. This was annoying at first but Im really concerned that my personal information may soon be found. This sounds like a flaw in AOL security. How long do I need to keep complaining? can someone fix this??

  20. advertising

    I want to know why I have so much advertising. I pay for the premium AOL and can get it for free if I wanted to do so. Premium payers should not be subjected to so much advertising. We are already paying you.
