  2. 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.

  3. spam

    Today images and links in Spam folder were blocked. I move things to spam so I can view them in private or delete them if and when I chose to. Arbitrarily block images from sites that you deem inappropriate? RETURN MY RIGHT TO SEE WHAT I WISH TOO!

  5. Spam Filter

    You recently modified the spam filter and made it nearly useless. I now get many spam emails in my inbox that were previously filtered out. Worse, you now classify as spam many of my regular emails requiring me to go to my spam file and reclassify them as desired email. I have been using the ‘Spam ’and ‘Not Spam' buttons to manually reclassify my email as appropriate in the hope that the filter would learn from my actions as to which category my email should be placed. The spam filter stubbornly insists on placing the same daily email in my…

  6. SPAM Choice controls

    I use my spam file for two things: (1) all the **** that gets sent can easily be deleted (and this seems to have gotten worse during the stay-at-home orders; and (2) to receive email from companies that I do want, but that send an enormous amount of email. On the second bullet here, I then can identify them quickly, open up and quickly determine if I want to keep or not. Have done this since opening an AOL account - 15+ years ago. Today, in looking through my SPAM file I find that AOL has decided how I will…

  7. Make it so I can use my iPad to block email addresses because none of your mobile apps have the option to do so.

    I should be able to use all of the things I can on a computer, while logged in to AOL, as I should on my iPad? That just kind of makes sense.

  8. Block spam by IP addresses

    Block spam by IP addresses! Sick of all the spam from spammers that just change the email address they are sending it from. DO SOMETHING about this.

  9. Spam Filtering

    Allow spam to go through user-defined filters first (rather than just moving them to Spam right away). That way we can use Filters to delete some spam ourselves, like the 75% I get from one sender. Instead, I have to see it in the Spam folder every day and manually handle deleting it.

  10. 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.

  11. For your security we disabled all images and links in this email. If you believe it is safe to use, mark this message as not spam.

    How can I get rid of this message? For your security we disabled all images and links in this email. If you believe it is safe to use, mark this message as not spam.
    I miss being able to open and unsubscribe! To many non spam emails hitting the spam folder. Very Frustrating!

  13. Add Enable reading pane to preview mail in SPAM folder ONLY as an option

    The current setting under OPTIONS > MAIL SETTINGS > GENERAL is to ENABLE READING PANE TO PREVIEW MAIL applies to ALL folders. Which I don't use or need. However, I would like to have the PREVIEW MAIL option available only in the SPAM folder.

    Suggest adding under OPTIONS > MAIL SETTINGS > in either GENERAL or SPAM SETTING, the option to ENABLE READING PANE TO PREVIEW MAIL IN SPAM FOLDER ONLY.

  15. Spam Blocking idea!

    I keep getting the same spam mails from the same people every day. It would be so easy to have a one click block on all the spams I don't want to keep. No need to blocks hundreds a day...one by one.

  19. THE NOTICE AT THE TOP OF SPAM THAT WILL NOT ALLOW US TO UNSUBSCRIBE THESE SPAM EMAILS!!!

    Would you PLEASE STOP putting that message at the top of the messages that went to "SPAM"? When I try to UNSUBSCRIBE, it won't let me because I would have to say it's NOT spam before I could do it and I do NOT want to say it's NOT spam when IT IS!!! I just want to be able to UNSUBSCRIBE when I know or FEEL it's spam! the images have been blocked but if we feel it's not spam to mark it "not spam" and THAT'S not what we want to do; the ONLY WAY we can STOP companies…
