  1. ordering emalis

    I have the basic version of aol mail ( Free version) and used to be able to order my emails by From, subject , date etc.
    However, now I am only able to order my emails by date and not any other column. Is this because I have the free version of AOL mail?

  2. AOL web mail search fails on long phrases

    I took the subject of a common email and searched for it, to delete them all, but it failed to find these exact matches. I removed some words and it found them, so your search function has a solid bug with longer phrases!

  4. paging is acting up.

    Paging only does one line at a time. Everytime I page the trashcan icon pops up. In one case it tried to delete one of my emails.

  5. Headlines and pictures OUT OF SYNC. For over a week now the news headline and the accompanying pictures are out of sync. Why not fix it?

    For over a week, headlines and pictures don't match up. A story on Trump will be paired with a picture of vegetables (maybe that's by design), but headlines and pictures are now always off by one story. I'm surprised none of the ***** millennials have noticed it, but again, you probably don't look at the dreck you usually post. Enough of the stupid headlines where you have to click through 50 pages and never find what the headline touted. You could be a serious force in journalism but you choose the tabloid supermarket approach. "Three headed woman can't decide which…

  9. Adverstisment on AOL Opening Page

    AOL on its opening page present excellent articles one followed by another. Originally it was a pleasure to read and learn from these Pictorial Articles. But then it appears some smart Alex at AOL thought of interspersing those pages with Advertisements to the point that these ads have become an irritant to the reader. I personally at first skipped these ads. Now I do not even Look at those Articles. I get them better at other sites. I believe that others must be doing the same. I came to AOL for efficiency & security in communicating with my addressee and…

  10. Can the delete, spam, and not spam buttons be colored or moved apart?

    Can the delete, spam, and not spam buttons be colored or moved apart?They are too close and accidents occur. Please move the button apart and add a color change:
    examples: red to delete, yellow for spam, orange for not spam, green for keep as new.
    Or allow customization to do so.

  11. Just Came Over From Netscape -- When Can I Go Back To Those Settings / Views / Layouts?

    Netscape mail was VERY organized and viewable - 20 messages per page, easy navigation to other pages and folders, simple links to move / delete / spam list messages. This AOL page seems to be nothing more than Outlook in disguise.

  12. It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app.

    It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app. Management of my email without these filters is quite cumbersome. You used to have them. Please include them in the next (hopefully very soon) update. Thank you!

  16. Hey AOL - how about less emphasis on ads, and more attention to your customers?

    It is extremely frustrating to have to put up with no less than 4 full screens of advertising just to actually get to my Email!! Separating the Login screen from the Password screen, just so AOL can sell more ad revenue, wastes my time, slows the process and is very annoying. Also, I notice constant problems with email loading and navigation, but those stupid, annoying banner ads always come right up!!

  18. functionality

    It would be great when within an email, there was a "back to inbox" arrow that would take you back to the Inbox, rather than having to click on the Inbox in the left pane. (Similar to what gmail already has). Just a thought for easier navigation.

  19. Mass delete using search

    We should be able to search for keywords and delete all emails associated with one click. That was the case before.

  20. searching for one email only

    please give us back the ability to search through our emails alphabetically. Why has that disappeared? Bloody inconvenient when trying to search back to find one email. That was a much easier way to zero in on one email. The ability to search only by date is unworkable.
