  3. Archive folder? Poorly utilized idea. Poor idea, at all.

    Stop putting ANY new emails in the 'Archive' folder. It's nonsense. Get rid of any of these goofy ideas you received from sister yahoo!

  5. sort

    Add sort by "From" email to the "New" mail folder when using the "use New/Old style" mail layout. Sort by "From" works for spam folder, and all other folders but not "New" (or "Old", which I don't really need sorting for but other people may).

    I get over 200 email a day and for over a year have been asking for the feature, BUT on deaf ears. --- MY WORK AROUND: To get around this I (1) select all mail in the New mail folder; (2) move them to a new / empty folder (e.g., "Temp New Mail"; (3) I…

  6. certain emails in AOL mail won't move from the old mail folder to the new mail folder

    Certain emails in AOL mail won't move from the old mail folder to the new mail folder. I click on the e-mail than click "keep as new". It moves them but when I click on the new folder they aren't in there but they show back up in the old mail folder. This is the case with these particular emails from last year. When I get new emails and they move to the old mail folder I can move them back to the new folder and they stay here. The problem is just with these 8 specific emails.

  9. Need better search for viewing old emails

    I would like to be able to search my old AOL emails for an EXACT PHRASE. Is this possible? eg would like to find emails mentioning "Jane Smith". I tried using the advanced search option and tried putting the search phrase both with single or double quotes on keyword like but it is NOT looking for that exact phrase - just finds emails containing Jane OR emails containing Smith but does not even bother to ensure that if I enter "Jane Smith" in search line that BOTH words are in the email before including in the results list. This looks…

  12. Put folder searchability right out in front, not embedded in an advanced search button.

    Not my idea - aol used to do this, then changed for some reason. Makes it more cumbersome for users to search through our own mail. Frustrating change.

  13. ALLOW ALL CATEGORIES TO BE SORTED BY "TO"/"FROM", "SUBJECT" AND "DATE"

    ALLOW ALL CATEGORIES TO BE SORTED BY "TO"/"FROM", "SUBJECT" AND "DATE" .
    THIS ENABLES USERS TO LOCATE MULTIPLE EMAILS FOR REVIEW, MULTIPLE MESSAGE FROM THE SAME SENDER, OR ON THE SAME TOPIC OR DATE. MAKES CLEAN UP FASTER.

  14. Requalification

    In the Sent folder, the "To" column cannot be sorted. This just recently happened. But in the Inbox and Recently Deleted folders, the "To" column CAN be sorted. This is an AOL database problem, not an end user problem. No changes have occurred with the end user's web browser or software. AOL needs to perform a requalification of the OQ validation portion.

  16. Make it work as it is supposed to work.

    I used the 'Search for From/To' to select all emails from, for example, 'Jim'. Sure enough they appeared, seperated from 'New Mail'.

    There were 999+ messages from Jim.

    They were to be moved to 'Jim's Folder'.

    AOL said; 'Only the first 1000 messages would be moved'

    OK, Fair enough, move them please.

    AOL Reports; '1000 messages moved to Jim, UNDO?'

    I look in Jim's folder, to find that nothing has changed, or 11 have been moved or one has been moved.

    Please fix it, keep it fixed, wasted a lot of time moving stuff to 'Folders' that don't get moved.

  17. AOL stop the bias

    Your hatefulness for the President Donald Trump keeps you more and more in the minority. We the people want are liberty returned to us.To the governors and Mayors, stop breaking the constitution of the U.S. and let freedom ring.

  18. You can provide a way to mass an delete email folders. I have two folders full of emails I no longer need.

    Allow customers to delete email folders with large amounts (thousands) of email stored with a single deletion.

  19. Implement a more user controllable bulk delete function

    Let us bulk delete by sender, date(year, month, day), topic, etc. With over 12,000 emails in my inbox, other methods are tedious and exceedingly time consuming.

  20. Tired of moving my emails to a specific folder only to have them go to “Restore “ which I can NEVER find.

    Please let people move emails to a specific folder THEY CHOOSE. Not some “restore “. Folder that can’t be found
