  1. DELETE the yellow banner so WE can make the decision if it's spam!

    PLEASE STOP PUTTING THAT NEW YELLOW SPAM IMAGE GARBAGE AT THE TOP OF EACH EMAIL IN THE SPAM FOLDER> WE CANNOT UNSUBSCRIBE TO ANY OF THESE EMAILS WHICH MEANS THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FLOOD OUR SPAM FOLDER!! CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT REASONING?? PLEASE REMOVE IT ASAP SO WE CAN UNSUBSCRIBE TO ALL THESE EMAILS WE DO NOT WANT!! YOU CAN STILL PUT THEM IN THE SPAM "FOLDER" BUT PLEASE "REMOVE" THAT RIDICULOUS YELLOW BANNER AT THE TOP! WE NEVER ASKED FOR THAT SO WHY DID YOU PUT IT THERE? THESE SPAM PEOPLE JUST KEEP ON SENDING THE SAME OLD…

  2. SPAM Settings

    It would be so nice if I could more easily BLOCK a SPAM sender/email. Just a simple button or something. Sick of having to open the email and copy and paste the address I want to block in my spam settings.

  3. Make it easier to block spam, and make it stick!

    Make an option to block spam as you go. Yahoo has it right. I've been a member for 16 years but if this spam settings are not blocking out senders- I can easily cancel my account.

  5. Way to much SPAM

    I receive probably 40 + spam messages a day. This site said I should block them myself. This is ridiculous. Why should I have to spend my time, multiple times a day trying to block 40 + messages a day, when aol is causing this to happen.

    Why cant we just click t he button and block these people.

  9. starting about two months ago I started receiving an average of 20 spam emails in my spam filter. How do I stop, May 17, 2020

    spam folder currently marks 25-35 emails a day as spam. Most are the same spam emails everyday. two months ago I was only receiving 2 a day in my spam folder. Why is the spam folder trained not to post the new spam emails and block the repetitive spams automatically? What changed two months ago?

  10. If an ad shows a little (x) box in the upper right corner it allows for your feedback. It doesn't matter what you mark it still comes back.

    I see these articles or ad's in boxes and it allows you to click the (x) in the upper right corner to give feedback. I keep seeing these celebrity ******* who I am supposed to be surprised that they are perverts or something that someone thinks is appropriate to normal people. I keep hitting the "offensive" mark but these same perverted articles keep returning. Why bother asking if you aren't planning on doing anything about what we think or feel is offensive?

  12. Your SPAM filters are a misreable failure!

    When I click on Support Options & want to choose "email", this message displays:

    "Email Us -
    Email support is currently unavailable due to COVID-19 health and safety considerations for our employees. For help with an issue, search our help articles.

    Your "Help" articles are absolutely worthless! Receiving dozens of SPAM daily - several from the same addresses. Three times in the past several weeks I maxed the block list because of too many SPAM being received & had to delete 100s of bad addresses just to add more to the list. Why make the block list unlimited - or…

  13. Make Spam button work on all e-mail.

    I have recently begun receiving e-mails that cannot be marked as Spam with the button; instead I am instructed to unsubscribe and I must go thru the Spam Settings to block wihich is much more inconvenient.

  16. A couple weeks ago you suddenly started sending emails that I routinely read to Spam. How can I fix this?

    When I go to Spam settings, I see only options for blocking, not "STOP sending this email to Spam!" What can I do? I'm tired of having to remember to scan the Spam box every day for emails that I wish to receive and open. You used to send only obvious spam to my spam email. Now you send half my mail there!!

  17. WAY TOO MUCH JUNK MAIL! Your spam filter is useless.

    Fix your spam filter, it's useless! It doesn't block anything. I put junk in spam folder, next day, more junk from same sender. Way too much trouble to open junk, copy address, move to settings, then mail settings, then spam settings,then paste to block address list. And then... REPEAT for then next spam. Ridiculous.

    Yahoo blocks spam! (and it's free!) Be more like Yahoo. Do SOMETHING to block spam.

  18. I cannot believe how much unwanted junk mail I now get on my AOL account. I am in the UK, but most of it originates from the US. A nightmare

    I cannot believe how much unwanted junk mail I now get on my AOL account. I am in the UK, but most of it originates from the US. it's real nightmare & I am seriously considering cancelling my email account. Even found I was getting email intended for a guy in the States, at one time.

  19. I have been receiving more and more spam in my regular mail and not receiving emails that I should of been getting and use to get regularly!

    I have been getting more and spam email in my regular emails and emails that I use to get for my business have been going to my spam for some reason. I cant have this. Plus the auto spell check keeps acting up. I have had AOL for almost 23 years, I would really hate to have to change my email now.
