  2. Do something about your spam filters, they aren't working properly

    These spammers just keep changing their email addresses and your filters suck: sample email below.

  3. you need to make a box to click on to block spam, and sae it to your blocked spam folder. i have to go thru too many steps to block junk.

    i have been with aol since inception, so if you want me for another 24 years, then update you email software to allow people to make one click next to the email "permanently block, check here" after opening obvious spam, and block the spam so that it is saved in the spam folder. i should not have to copy the offending email, go to mail settings, block senders, paste return email address, save settings, etc. why is this so complicated i do not need memberships, vitamins, or "endurance!" do your job!

  4. reinstate ability to block partial email address like "@findfootwear.info." for every 1 blocked i get 5-10 more from the same address!

    reinstate the ability to block a partial spam as follows elijah_colon@findfootwear.info. i use to be able to block all users on this spam account reducing my box by 80-90% because if i block elijah, then susie pops up, and so on... using the @findfootwear.info. this would also free up gig space on your end.

  5. unsubscribe

    I don't EVER want to send an unsubscribe request to a spammer, but that's what AOL mail is telling me to do when I mark some emails as SPAM.

    I can tell from the brief preview that many of them are phishing schemes, and they deserve no response whatsoever - even an UNSUBSCRIBE. How about an option to "FLAG AND FLUSH?"

  7. Re-instate the use of the '*' in Spam settings.

    You don't understand that Spam senders use a different address after the @ every time so every single spam email address has to be entered into the filter. I had 29 separate addresses one day recently - all from bounce@. This is so wasteful when you already had a way to make it easy for your customers. This has all started to happen in the last 5 days.

  15. SPAM

    Show the sender's URL in the "from" box, Even better, just stop sending the 20-40 pieces of junk mail I've been getting every day for months.

  16. do something with the spam filter - tired of getting the same email day after day, 3 & 4 at a time even after I delete them!

    fix your filter or do something to stop spam once & for all.
    Tired of 4 -5 spam emails from the same place several times a day.
    They are getting to be as bad as robo calls that don't go away.

  18. I've set really specific spam filters, and not one of them is working.

    I've set filters for specific words in Subject lines, From lines, words in the body of the email, and even to accept email only from specific addresses, and not one of them is working. And I can't set filters for specific domains. I don't expect any email from .uk or .anything.uk, but I can't block that domain. Even blocking the word "insurance" in subject lines isn't blocking insurance offers. And I'm only allowed to set 50 filters. Don't know what you're doing, folks, but it looks like you're not doing anything. Until you fix it, I'm disabling AOL. Not happy,…
