  1. "BLOCK EMAIL" made simple + easy!

    PLEASE, include a "BLOCK EMAIL" option in the drop down window when an email is clicked on. Having to type in the address(es) in the current block email system is VERY tedious and they change their addresses hourly. I AM SICK-AND-TIRED of all these, "I want to have * w/ you." emails, etc. **! Make it easy!

  7. block e-emails

    I have to open a spam e-mail and then right click on senders address and view nasty photos to send to block list. Why don' t you have a selection at the bottom of new and spammed page the option to send it to block like you have for sending to spam?

  8. SPAM Handling

    Bring back the old handling of SPAM! I can no longer unsubscribe or read something before I decide because you disabled the links. If I move them out of SPAM they go to 'old' and can be hard to find. You are helping the people sending SPAM!

  10. So when are you going to make your subscribers happy? When are we going to be able to write an e-mail with our choice of stationary?

    PLEASE PLEASE bring back all the options we had for writing e-mails... the stationery, the automation. WHEN are you going to think about what your subscribers want?
    Oh, and all the pop-up!? Good heavens!!!!!

  12. Hi - I would like it if you could block emails with certain words in them.

    Please allow us to block emails with certain words in them. I get about 20 emails a day that are spa but I can't block them with keywords. The email addresses with todays tech have about 20 different character combos so you can't effectively block them by selecting just the email address.

  15. Use an asterisk (*) to when you have multiple spam such as Version@choice.girtin.net, version@spondulicks.org, version@suit.hygeist.org. E

    Use an asterisk () to when you have multiple spam such as Version@choice.girtin.net, version@spondulicks.org, Version@suit.hygeist.org. Example: Version@ That would take care of all spam starting with Version@ and no need to list each one in the Block Spam.

  16. Spam

    I started using your spam blocker two weeks ago. Now I get 25 or more at a time, over 100 a day all from different urls. I can't block every one. Can't you stop this BS?

  17. I get a lot of

    I get a lot of JUNK emails with over a hundred random characters. A simple way to bock them would be a Filter that Limits the number of characters in email. I would chose the number 40.

  18. sign on

    The sign off link at top used to show all screens names of master account and if any of those screen names had unread mail. Now it doesn't and you have to sign into each screen name to see if any unread mail is waiting. You went from ease of use to non ease of use. Please return this feature.

  19. news items

    it is impossible to try and respond to one of your lead-ins for all your advertisments, you present a headline, i want to read what your offering, but your ads block the news, jump all over the page and make it impossible to get to the article. i am tired of it and will no longer respond to any of your headlines headlines

  20. Clicking on a link for a Zoom conference breaks AOL.

    Found out this is a feature, not a bug, using the browser contained within AOL's ecosystem. Workaround is forwarding the email to another address or accessing AOL mail via the web. This is about security, I was told by a tech, but it's pain. Zoom is VERY widely used in these coronavirus days, so AOL, please get with it.
