  1. exactly what good is the forum IF AOL (now owned by Verizon) IGNORES the needs of its victims?

    MANY people have complained, commented or simply asked how to improve the visibility of text in their AOL email. WHAT GOOD HAS this done? NONE that I can SEE (pun intended). NO changes have been made! AOL does NOT care and, apparently, neither does their parent company Verizon.

  2. Mail from contacts only

    When "Mail From Contacts Only" is "ON", why couldn't this apply to the Spam box also?? That would get rid of all the **** and ladies seeking conversation and dates !!!

  3. Improve spam detections and blocking.

    I receive many junk emails with the local part like Renter-250835info or Renter-250806info with ever changing domain names. These emails should be totally blocked.

  4. How to delete a post?

    I know AOL doesn't want to be bothered with questions from its subscribers, but I will try once more to get an answer to an simple question. HOW DO I DELETE A POST THAT I MADE?

    Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

    Your message wasn't delivered because the recipient's mailbox is quarantined. If the problem continues, please contact your email admin. What's the story with this???

  9. feedback on latest update

    The new update is awful.
    I relied on the cache, which listed my most recent 200 websites. I would go back to the critical ones regularly. Now the cache is blank, and I've lost the URL for some very hard to find sites.

    Also, in the previous version, when I made my Welcome screen the active window, the search bar would blank out, making it easy to type in the next window. I could easily keep 8 windows at once. Now it is more work to clear the search bar.
    Tech support told me to re-find all the websites I…

  10. E-Mail Lists Shift Vertically When Cursor is Moved Inside the List

    When the cursor is moved into a list of e-mails, all of the e-mails below the position of the cursor shift downward. When the cursor is removed, the e-mails shift upward. This is distracting.

    Has anyone else noticed this behavior? If so, join me in requesting that this be fixed.

  11. Switch username

    When we go to switch username, new screen comes us and list other usernames and says click to save password. When never save our passwords and do not want to click a userneame that says save password, but it does not give us another option.

    Working with an AOL Technician, he remotely logged in, and we clicked on the username save password, but it did not say save password anywhere. We would like to have the old screen back for switching usernames that did not mention save password in switch usernames.

  12. Expand the sign in screen to include all 7 email addresses.

    Each time I switch email addresses from my business to my personal or vice versa I am forced to scroll down because the sign in screen only shows 5 email addresses. Go back to the old sign in screen!

  16. Deleting emails and Address Book

    In spam folder I have to do two clicks to delete. One is what it should be to go faster. Name that is highlighted is too dark. As one ages, less light goes into the eyes.......AOL has mostly older users. Please make it easier for us.....

  17. Remove ads from the area where email are read.

    I do not have an idea what I have is a complaint that I have ads showing up in my email space and I would like for this to stop. I did not sign up for this and it is very annoying because some of them I find offensive.
    I have been an aol customer for over 30+ years and I never had to deal with ads like this. I have gone into the privacy area and I have not been able to stop this from happening.
    What do I have to do to stop this?

  18. I almost vomit looking at all the articles that insult good people. Get rid of political prejudice.

    At least half (I believe more) of this country is Conservative. You and almost all media are on a quest to destroy our country. Why would any business want to alienate half of all their customers? I've never understood the logic. All of you must have idiots for business CEO's.
    I wouldn't want any of your leaders running my business.

  19. block domains in spam controls

    90% of my spam comes from 2 domains with constantly changing name before the @. It would really help if I could block the entire domain, e.g., enter *@baddomain
