  1. Allow us to opt out of your default spam filter settings.

    Recently, when I learned that e-mails that had been sent to me never reached my Outlook Inbox, I discovered 25 e-mails in my AOL webmail spam folder. Since clearing those e-mails, I discovered two more wanted e-mails in this spam folder. I never set any filters on my AOL account or my client, and wonder how many e-mails I never received because of your invisible mandatory filtering. You have created, for me, the inconvenience of lost e-mails and the need to periodically log into my webmail in order to check for unwanted filtering. Please correct this.

  6. My inbox was filled today with messages sent to me from 2018 to 2019. The senders are the original senders. Please stop this error.

    My inbox is being flooded by past emails (received by me) with the original send dates. Check my trash for over 160 examples just from today. Fix the hack.

  10. Continue to help stop spam and phishing email by accepting forwarded junk email at abuse@aol.com

    AOL has stopped accepting spam/phishing email I forward. So obviously aol is not interested in stopping spam/phishing email. I'm a 20+ year AOL customer who finds less and less reason to continue as a paying customer. AOL used to be a service worth paying for but gradually it seems you just aren't interested in providing any real help and never even provided so much as an email notification that the help was ending.

  13. reduce the amount of spam coming from America

    I receive too much spam from America. In some cases I can get 6 emails from the same email address and this is repeated often.
    it's good that it is filtered out but surely AOL can do more to reduce/stop this nuisance.

  15. Let me decide what's weeded out as spam. I am missing IMPORTANT emails and have no access to them on my phone.

    Let me decide what's weeded out as spam. I am missing IMPORTANT emails and have no access to them on my phone. I should be able to mark a sender as SAFE or NOT SPAM.

  17. Immediately revert back to old email system as tne app one is totally user unfriendly

    Block all American spam emails at source and do not include ads at header of each days emails. Let the customer decide what they want and not have irrelevances imposed on them
