  1. Stop the ads, nothing more nothing less AOL. lets start a cancellation policy

    How about this, we all start to cancel our business with AOL until they rollback this ******* decision. They have taken advise from some clown or competitor to ruin a decent business. a 20 yr customer about to cancel.

  3. Block without opening

    I would like to be able to block from receiving any e-mail at all from senders without having to open the e-mail address to see the sender's e-mail address. A right click on the e-mail should suffice like when I chose to delete an e-mail without opening it.

  4. Unread mail

    I used to be able to sort and find all of my unread mail. I can no longer do that. It would be nice to have that feature back very soon. Thanks.

  8. Support multiple server connections to cache for third party clients under IMAP

    When a third-party client such as Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail enables multiple server connections to cache for an IMAP account, accessing folders initiates additional login authorizations which will eventually be rejected when too many requests are made within a given period of time. This is very frustrating for the user, since he or she has in fact "done everything right" when setting up the account. As a workaround, PLEASE advise the user when setting up his e-mail account under a third-party program to set the maximum number of server connections to cache to 1:

  9. hovering over "From" entries should show the sender complete URL.

    This is needed due to the huge number of fake messages containing as names legit places, but the real URL proves them to be fakes for phishing. AOL had it for a while but now it is lost.

  10. put blocking mail in the headers

    block or perm delete email contact should be a button along with the delete move and read buttons. that way you dont have to go through half a dozen pages just to block someone. by the time i get there i forgot the name of the address i wanted to block.

  11. dl-mail.aolmail.com

  13. Wild cards (*) in email address filters no longer allowed

    Could wild cards in email address filters be allowed again. eg: Send *@anywhere.com to MyFolder. This used to work up until a few months ago.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback, we’ll send it over to the Product Team and hope to have it implemented in the future.

  14. Many providers allow text messages from cell phones to be received in an email account.I see avery long list of providers who allow sms meea

    Allow text messages from cell phones to be received in the email inbox.
    I see a long list of providers who allow "sms" messages to be sent to email accounts when searching for ways to get text messages through an email service., It's much faster and easier for the user.

  15. Delete individual advertisements that stay on the screen too long.

    Allow one to discontinue irrelevant individual advertisements. Often after a purchase had been made, or you just explored something you heard about, they advertise the products you have no interest in and it stays on your screen too long of a period. Often you already purchased or was just exploring the internet.

  16. Return to current position in Inbox after readi

    When I'm done reading an email and I return to the Inbox, it goes to the START (most recent) of the emails. When I'm going through my emails top-to-bottom and I'm several pages down the list, I then have to repeatedly scroll down to re-locate my place. I think it would make reading emails MUCH easier if you provided a "Back" button to return to the same place in the Inbox as the email that was just read. Thanks, Alan

  18. Combine all emails included in the same conversation into just one email.

    Right now all emails coming in are treated as separate emails, even though many are replies to an earlier email sent out. Why not combine the replies with the original email to reduce the number of entries in our Inbox?
