  2. Spam or Junk mail has increased, can’t AOL stop the massive amount of spam mail? I’m getting messages where the sender is all question marks

    AOL technical support needs to stop more junk mail. I’m getting an increasing about of junk or spam mail. The senders name is all question marks, that should be easy to stop. ?????

  3. You should be able to block the disgusting spam mail we get. Every day i must get 20 or so ugly spam emails.

    We should not have to pay for you to block spam mail. I get 1-20 spam emails a day if not more. You can't even block them from coming. My block list is unbelievably long. STOP them from coming

  4. SPAM

    A lot of my mail from Amazon and Nextdoor goes to SPAM. I move it to the inbox, enable links and images and mark it as not SPAM. I close out my mail and when I reopen it, everything is back in my SPAM folder. I am strongly considering closing this account and changing my email address.

  5. 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…

  7. Block email address/domains on mobile devices

    Why is it not possible to add email addresses or domains to the block list on the AOL app or from the AOL website on mobile devices? It is ridiculous that I have to login on my laptop to perform such a simple task.

  9. Add counter to mail filter entry to know how many times filter rerouted input entry

    with counter in mail filter entry and possibility to sort by this counter will be possible to significantly improve filtering process

    I have 40+ years of IT experience and can improve AOL services if I get position at AOL. With millions of H1B visas I as US citizen can not get IT job

  16. Spam Filter fix

    Please add the "word" filter back to spam settings. Although 99% of my spam emails get blocked, it's getting ridiculous with the amount of spam emails I'm getting. The "word" filter worked!

  17. Blocking spam

    There has been a big uptick in spam email since the Corona virus struck. How about a spam blocking option like they have in Hotmail and Outlook? A couple of clicks and it's done. No guess work, no digging around to find the sender's address and it works.

  18. Unsubscribe does not work.

    How about you leave well enough alone and go back to letting us click 'SPAM' and you eliminate that email and all future go to SPAM. Now I get a notification from AOL about 'do I want to unsubscribe - we will send a request to the sender....' That way, later on I get a bounced email and continue to get their **** in my inbox.

  19. Please stop the spam!! I can’t mark the domain all the time because it’s always changing and it’s like 100 a day. Get better filters.

    Get better filters for spam. It’s not possible to filter every domain when they constantly change.
