  8. SPOOF Email

    Getting spoof emails saying it's from my email address to my email address about an AOL Calendar reminder that is not showing on my AOL calendar (calendar.aol.com) It started happening last 2019. Collected more than 9000 about this in my specific folder Tried to create a filter so that all emails from this sender will go directly to my specific folder but now i am getting them on the inbox.
    I also see emails from the Sent folder which iI did not send. It shows that I sent out emails from Me to Me.
    Every time I click the link…

    I am very upset that the feature under send email has been removed. You cannot select save on my pc. This feature has been removed. I have been using AOL and this feature for over 30 years and this is a big inconvenience. This feature needs to be restored. Thanks

  13. The "Save Window SIze and Position" for the Mailbox window should also save the column widths.

    The "Save Window Size and Position" should also save the column widths in the Mailbox window. Every time I select "Read" to open the Mailbox, I have to make the "My Mail Folders" column wider to fit all my folder names, and I have to make the "From" column wider to see more of the email addresses. Other apps and programs do this without the user even asking to save them. They just keep the widths the same as they were left when last used.

  17. Update on the total count for mail folders

    Use version as of January 14: 11.0.3046 this is good enough. The inbox should should and new and the new folder should only show the new messages with indication of count. The old will also have a numeric indication. It is not necessary for the fonts to be bold.

  20. Quick Find - Select All- Delete

    Hello, I have the most difficult time cleaning out my mail box. PLEASE YOU COULD HELP IN THIS WAY:
    Quick Find:
    Then IF you would ADD these options:
    SELECT ALL:
    DELETE:

    I have to scroll to delete one email at a time..that takes hours that is why I don't do it. I have so many emails that I try to get people to send me messages in other ways. However I could quickly get ahold and manage my mail so much easier if for example:
