  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. addresses not being blocked

    I have BLOCKED addresses, however I CONTINUE TO GET EMAIL from these blocked addresses! WHY? And the amount of spam on AOL is absolutely RIDICULOUS! If I block an address i should NOT get ANY EMAIL including SPAM from the blocked address.

  6. Aol Mail app keeps signing me out (iOS)

    Constantly have the same issue with the ios version of the aol mail app.
    I have either two or three aol email accounts that I'm logged into on the app. When I either open the app to check my emails, or when an app notification for a new email appears on the lock or home screen, and I swipe to open it, it brings me to the log-in screen to re-enter my username and password. All of my aol email accounts that were signed into through the ios app require me to sign in again. If I opt not to…

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. forwarding email no longer works!

    Setting to FORWARD all email to another email address does not work as of today, 7/11/20.

    Also can't COMPOSE, REPLY OR FORWARD a single email directly on AOL site.

    Details:
    I have several of my AOL email accts (verizon.net) set up to all forward to my gmail account. This has worked fine since you took over verizon.net emails ... until this morning 7/11/20; now it is not working. So I logged into my main email account directly on the AOL site, see emails there that were received today, but they have not forwarded to the gmail account.

    But then I…

  14. STOP showing me "Today on AOL" when signing in. I didn't check that box, and I don't care about your tiresome political opinions. Just take

    STOP showing me "Today on AOL" when signing in. I did NOT check that box, and I don't care about your tiresome political opinions. Just take me directly to my mailbox.
    Actually, you might want to drop the whole "Today on AOL" train wreck anyway. It's just a sad mix of political bias and clickbait -- you can't really believe it's helpful for your brand.

  20. Stop sending ads from the democratic party

    Should allow a user to select a policical party, or opt out of all political ads, news etc. I'm tired of AOL bashing my President.
