  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  18. Recent Multiple Spam in Inbox

    Until now AOL Spam filters seemed to eliminate every Spam email before they reached my inbox. In the last week, I now receive multiple Spam in my inbox every day. Why? I report each as Spam, but there is also an option for AOL to request that my email address be unsubscribed to individual spams. Why would I do that? This would only validate to spammers that my email address is alive.

  19. Spam

    You are deliberately bombarding my inbox with disgusting trash spam emails because you are trying to force me into your $10 a month spam free deal! I have two other email accounts which are virtually spam free, if you continue to disrupt my mail I will dump you and go with the others, not good tactics after being with you for so long!
