  1. Allow Users Responsibility For Their Account Passwords

    I am sick of your system not allowing users to set my password to what they want by giving notices saying "Your new password is too similar to your previous password" or other such messages. I understand that you do this for security, but as the account owner I want to set my password to what I want and so long as I have not been hacked my password is still safe no matter what it is even if it was the exact same as the previous password. STOP MAKING THINGS MORE DIFFICULT FOR USERS BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE…

  2. Let ``read'' messages stay in New Mail until I delete them!

    Do NOT delete New Mail as soon as a message is read! This is very annoying and does not happen in gmail, which I prefer. Allow the user to hold the message in New Mail, delete the message or send it to Old Mail. Otherwise keep all New Mail messages until the USER moves them. I spend an hour a day searching for messages in Old Mail that I want to keep after I read them.

  5. two step verification - locked out of my account

    Allow you to recover your account online if two step verification fails.

    The email address set up for two step verification I no longer have access to and no help is provided. It's circle of support that leads to no solution - even if I speak to someone on the helpline.

    I can no longer access my emails.

  6. Increase the maximum allowed Filter Settings - 50 is not enough

    The Filter Settings, with their limited function, require us to set one filter per each action. With a maximum of 50, this is not enough. Either increase the maximum number of filters or add better functionality to the filter settings. For example, with Gmail you can add multiple email addresses, comma separated within curly brackets to tell all my subscriptions to filter to my "Subscriptions" folder, just as an example.

  8. AOL BROWSER

    Dear AOL

    “When is AOL going to function as before when most people were proud to belong?”

    AOL should be allowed to operate as a stand alone app irrespective of Verizon or Oath. Gone are the days.

    Regards.

  9. When you read a mail item, it goes to old mail before you can delete it. So you have to go to old mail to delete it. It didn't used to be

    Keep a read mail in the new mail category until you log off and log back on again. Otherwise you have to go to old mail to delete every read mail you don't want to keep.

  11. Synchronisation with my other accounts

    Can I connect my yahoo and gmail accounts to AOL mail? I mean to receive all the emails sent to yahoo and gmail in my AOL inbox. I am planning to stay aside from my gmail and yahoo accounts some time later and will go on with AOL only. However, I have to keep them active for at least 4 months.

  18. PPlease return the "block emails containing these words" filter - IT WORKED -y remove it?

    Return the spam setting for blocking emails that contained specific words. I have NO IDEA why you would remove it - and looking at all of the exact same complaints I don't know why you would not have returned it to spam setting. Adding the email address does nothing because they just send **** with a new address -why should I pay you for this inconvenience? I accept better for my money.

  19. Dark Mode Accessibility Setting

    There is more to "Accessibility" than making the font bigger, and spaced wider apart.... You need to add a Dark Mode to your site. Staring at a solid white screen gives a large percentage of the population migraines. I have gotten to the point where I will accumulate hundreds of emails, because I dread getting on and looking at them, because of the bright white screen, that I know will lead to a migraine. Please add a Dark Mode.
