  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.

  5. Emailing back and forth from sec 1 Whatever Sec you're on!

    I'm in E-mail section 55. When I delete or save as new (not sure), E-mail goes auto. back to Sec. 1. Now I've got to sear foe Sec. 55 again. I want to stay on 55 not go back and forth.
    Why did you change just going from beginning to end by scrolling down?

    Thanks for your time.

  6. SO MANY ways to "improve AOL Mail"...where to even begin??!

    Knock off the leftist propaganda and extreme bias in your "news" stories!! I just want to read my emails. Is AOL a left wing advocacy group or an honest business that wants to appeal to ALL Americans? I think we know the answer...

  7. Sorting the Inbox

    Would you make a toggle on/off option to see only UNREAD mail in the inbox?

  8. 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.

  9. dl-mail.aolmail.com

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  16. 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?

  18. Adding profile picture setting for email receivers to know what the email sender looks like

    When people send an email it would be great for the receiver to see a picture of the person sending the email, just like the profile picture setting in Gmail. When an email receiever receives an aol email they see a blank photo representing the email senderl. Please look into fixing this issue to be more streamlined like your competitor email services

  20. incoming notification for new emails need to include who it is from and not just the subjext line

    Not sure where this suggestion has gone however it does not appear to be here any longer...New Emails notifications that pop up on my iPhone or iPad show the RE line, 1st line of the body of the email and the date/time. It also shows FROM but it has MY info as this one I'm looking at is a reply to my email. NO WHERE does it show WHO is replying to my email. On new emails to me (not a reply) they don't show ANYTHING as to who it is FROM. PLEASE! include the FROM in the notifications on…
