  2. Please tell me how I can keep recently deleted mail for a week - sometimes I inadvertently delete, and can't recover. Thanks

    Create a setting for keeping deleted mail for a desired amount of time.
    Sometimes, mail is inadvertently deleted, and never able to recover.

  3. Saving emails on my PC

    Why can't I save my emails to my PC and not have to sign in if I want to read one I saved. The old system was so much smoother and easy to use. Thanks.

  4. Every single time I come over here I have to change from the standard to basic setting. Isn't there a way for you to save my preference?

    It is MUCH easier to maneuver in the inbox in the basic/accessible setting than in the standard setting. Every single time I come to the inbox I change it to the basic/accessible setting and yet every single time you change it back. Isn't there something that can be done to save my preferences? This is getting real old real fast.

  5. You are still have bugs with Russia phone numbers!!!! I don't know how to make you fix this, I had written you few years ago about this

    I don't know how to make you fix this, I had written you few years ago about this. Russian's phone prefix is +7, and phone number looks like +7(989)1234567. But you stubbornly add "8", and after that phone number looks like +7 8 (989)1234567. It's so disappointed! Fix this please!!!

  6. For decades I have depended on AOL for my my primary correspondence. With various new ownerships, Oath, and who knows the resulting fracture

    For decades I have depended on AOL for my my primary correspondence. With various new ownerships, Oath, and who knows the resulting fractures within the company as a result, the new comers have managed to ruin a household name. Of course it could be argued what do I expect from a free service — well nothing is free at the end of the day, and anyway AOL was produced out of innocence and a new era not unlike the discovery of the wheel. So now you have grown-up with the realization you can control people completely and close the door on…

  8. Dark Interface and Virtual Disk?

    Hi AOL Team,

    A completely dark interface and virtual disk is not bad.

    Thanks.

  9. deleted mail

    There should be a setting that when you close the email a dialog box comes up to ask if you want to permanently delete deleted mail. This will keep the folder empty. I forget to enpty the deleted and it gets a lot in it.

  10. Put the settings with the processes again!

    Put settings with the processes again!
    You previously had it where we could adjust the mail processes on the mail screen, but it's not there any longer. It's off, hidden, in some mysterious location that can't be found but portions of the settings can be found via the mail "HELP" menu.

    Very silly.

    Put everything related to a service WITH that service rather than around the corner, behind the ficus plant, and next to the filing cabinets.

    You look for tools of a program within that program. Not in another program unrelated to the program you were using, for each…

    If you previously created an Account Security Question (ASQ), you may be prompted to enter it when signing in to certain parts of your AOL account. You can no longer create or update your ASQ. Instead, we recommend you turn on 2-step verification and add a recovery phone number and email address to your account.

  14. Please CARE about AOL member wants & restore EMAIL ALERTS sending text notifications when certain sender mail was received --

    Not everyone lives online.

    If AOL wants to keep members & give value, stop pushing unasked for products and services and please deliver those functions and features this long-time member actually relied upon & utilized frequently.

    Really tired of indifferent AOL customer service.

    I am PAYING for this ACCOUNT, but AOL delivers incredibly poor customer interaction, and trying to gain assistance, even when the source is AOL technical difficulties, is just infuriating. With every issue and contact, I get closer to leaving AOL. . .

    What is WRONG WITH THIS COMPANY that they cannot listen -- or grasp that they…

  15. Please allow option to include a column for email size (in kb) in the regular listing

    I'd like to be able to view the size of each email (in kb or mb), in order to permit selection of very large emails that I may not wish to download to the client - or that won't download to the client. Consider adding a column to the email display list. Or add a setting with checkboxes so I can choose the columns I wish to display. Thanks for your consideration.

  18. Verifying other accounts does not need done more than once or twice a year

    Please provide option WHEN (such as 60 days, 200 days) the user wants to verify accounts. I am using another AOL account, but cannot be in both accounts at the same time. I have to find another device, if one is available, or jump back and forth between accounts.
