    Is the constant sign-in on my iphone AOL app being checked out. Is this the reason when I am asked to get an email confirmation code or email confirmation response is not going through? I couldn't e-file because of the inability to receive a confirmation code.

  5. Emails take forever to receive. I will have someone tell me they just sent me an email and it takes maybe an hour or more to get it.

    Emails take forever to receive. I will have someone tell me they just sent me an email but I might not receive it for hours. And I'm not getting emails from people that are in my address book or replies to emails I have sent to them. WTF is up with AOL. Ever since net neutrality was blown out of the water, the service has deteriorated completely and we pay for it.

  6. Mail and mailbox slow to load

    Last update has broken the mailbox. Messages in folders are extremely laggy - slow to load, load out of order and then reload, deleting messages is slow - everything was working great and now it's a mess.

    The spam folder has had an issue for awhile. Clicking on "this is not spam" causes the message to disappear completely. It does not get transferred to the inbox.

  7. Marking an email "UNREAD" does not restore BOLD black.

    It does remove the 'hard-to-see' red check, but leaving the senders ID and subject in gray makes it blend in with all the emails that had been read.

  12. r

    When I log on, all my emails are gone. Yesterday a message from AOL told me steps to get them back.....I HAD to include my mobile number. WHY?? Within hours I started receiving phone calls and the caller ID showed MY name and MY mobile phone number. In other words I was calling myself. This had NEVER happened before I had to post it on your website. WHY?? You should act on all the messages you get about how frustrating AOL GOLD is. I have paid for AOL for so many years...and was pleased with it UNTIL you came up…

  13. "Mange folders" is not working

    Manage Folders is not working. I have attempted to delete some older ones and tried adding new ones to no avail. Other options such as "move folder" do not work either.

  17. See below

    I can only delete one incoming mail at a
    Time. It takes forever. That is rediculous. It was not always that way.
    On comcast Email. I can check on a whole bunch of mail and delete all of it
    The same for “yesterday”. It depends on when you check your mail. There is no date. Nor or what day.
    Who has time to guess and for why.
    I would think this would have been all figured out.

  19. Bug in New Spam Settings

    I mistakenly added a word to the list of specific words and phrases (then realized it was a bad idea, as now hundreds of emails are being sent to the Spam Folder). When I try to remove it, I get an error: "We seem to have trouble sending this request. Please try again in 5 minutes. Code: Forbidden." No matter how many times I've tried, the "spam" word I want to delete won't go away! Please fix this!! I can provide a screenshot if you need it.

  20. Technical support issues re: email

    For the last couple of weeks, almost all of my email is going directly to spam. I've checked every 'settings' and 'email' option available to make sure I have no one blocked, but it still goes to email, EVEN AFTER I have clicked on each entry to say "This is not spam." I've 'chatted' with tech support twice - no luck. I've also called aol twice,
    no luck, even tho one of those calls was to a 'higher level' of tech support. Now what do I do?
