  1. I'm getting VERY irate over your leftist woke BS news feed. Take it OFF my email page!

    Quit giving us all that leftist ******** on our mail page, I hate seeing all those **** deepstate LIES, every **** time I open my email page! I'm quite certain many others are just as annoyed but won't bother to complain about it. I am **** tired of all the ******* propaganda being shoved in our faces from every news program and places like this, that should not be giving any kind of news at all, you are an email provider, do THAT and nothing ELSE!

  2. Deleted SPAM addresses should AUTOMATICALLY BE SENT to "Block Unwanted Mail" list.

    ALL AOL PROGRAMS, especially AOL GOLD should automatically BLOCK SPAM address or at least have the option to do so. Any and ALL deleted SPAM addresses should AUTOMATICALLY BE sent and ADDED to the AOL "Block Unwanted Mail" list. Probably the reason it isn't already is AOL is partly corrupt and in paid cahoots with certain SPAMMERS and/or AOL Programmers either don't know how to set that up or have been instructed not to by AOL Veeps. Either way, it's idiotic and antiquated and renders inept, impotent and poor service for which AOL now has a global reputation.

  3. I wanted to generate a third party app password but "Sorry, this feature is not available right now!"

    Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to wait until the feature becomes available? How long do I have to wait?

    We're very sorry app passwords are currently unavailable for AOL Mail accounts. Rest assured, you can still access your mail from the AOL Mail app or via a web browser. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

  4. REJECT ANY EMAIL, WHEN THE RETURN ADDRESS IS NOT VALID.

    REJECT ANY EMAIL, WHEN THE RETURN ADDRESS IS NOT VALID. Many spam emails have not a valid return address.

  5. Put from field back to email address, stop assisting hackers and spam using fake from.

    AOL started loading the from column with the fluffy and often fake user supplied alias and not the actual email address that they originally used. The fluffy from alias often says "Home Depot" or "Lowe's" when it comes from one of a few spam domains, not the company they are ripping off the brand of!

    IF AOL wanted to be really smart, they would not only show the email address but also sort by domain component right to left and then by the user name before the @, so all the email for .de or .uk or .ru, where spammers…

  8. 50 email filters need expanded

    Expand Email Filters to allow more than 50 filters or allow more than one address, subject or filter wihin each of the filter. By not having this you drive people to use other emails because AOL box is cluttered.

  11. easier deletion of unwanted emails

    We use to be able to search email sender, select all, and delete. It now requires several attempts. I have used AOL since its inception, but this difficulty managing emails is now a pain in the butt. You have made it worse, not better.

  16. lots of spam emails

    The amount of spam emails in the spam folders is out of control. If the AOL team bothered to investigate they would discover that a handful, handful of people are creating these spam emails, by gee, going to WHOIS.com and finding out, like I did.

    Is AOL ever going to fix this flood of spam coming into everyone's email boxes?

    I am tired of having to scan these Spam emails to make sure my legit emails aren't there, and today, there was one....I'm tired of when I scan these Spam emails I see pornographic references. Uhm, Really AOL, you can't…

  18. I hate the automatic movement of emal to "old mail" when I close them. I used to be ablt to delete them and let them rest in "new mail"

    Let us keep mail in New Mail folder when closing mail instead of automatically sending to old mail. Also, I want to be able to save mail as "new mail" and BOLDED so I can more easily find it when I have time to deal with it.

  19. Scam call about AOL account. Scam number (424-326-1582) Scam Number

    Received 2 calls today about my AOL account being compromised from random location in Virginia. After the first call I played it safe and changed my passwords on desktop and other devices to be sure but got a call again from a different person with the same script saying someone was accessing the account. Checked the account after the password change and only see me, myself logged in and the devices I gave permission to for my account and nothing from Virginia. I've already blocked the number. IF this number appears on your phone 424-326-1582, just know it's a scam…

  20. When blocking email senders, I should be able to use blanket wild card sylbols like and asterisk to block all emails which start that way.

    PLEASE allow us to block emails from a sender which starts with a single word, like Admin, since spammers use that under 100s of addresses after @. I should be allowed to block all emails which start with Admin.
