  6. sort

    Add sort by "From" email to the "New" mail folder when using the "use New/Old style" mail layout. Sort by "From" works for spam folder, and all other folders but not "New" (or "Old", which I don't really need sorting for but other people may).

    I get over 200 email a day and for over a year have been asking for the feature, BUT on deaf ears. --- MY WORK AROUND: To get around this I (1) select all mail in the New mail folder; (2) move them to a new / empty folder (e.g., "Temp New Mail"; (3) I…

  8. Archive folder? Poorly utilized idea. Poor idea, at all.

    Stop putting ANY new emails in the 'Archive' folder. It's nonsense. Get rid of any of these goofy ideas you received from sister yahoo!

  9. ALLOW ALL CATEGORIES TO BE SORTED BY "TO"/"FROM", "SUBJECT" AND "DATE"

    ALLOW ALL CATEGORIES TO BE SORTED BY "TO"/"FROM", "SUBJECT" AND "DATE" .
    THIS ENABLES USERS TO LOCATE MULTIPLE EMAILS FOR REVIEW, MULTIPLE MESSAGE FROM THE SAME SENDER, OR ON THE SAME TOPIC OR DATE. MAKES CLEAN UP FASTER.

  10. Implement a more user controllable bulk delete function

    Let us bulk delete by sender, date(year, month, day), topic, etc. With over 12,000 emails in my inbox, other methods are tedious and exceedingly time consuming.

  11. folders

    There is something really wrong with the email/folders part of this program~! I have been with AOL from the beginning and it's getting harder to stay a loyal user. I try to put lots of daily emails into folders and whenever I try this it does not wok, it only al;lows you to move one email at a time into a folder. THIS HAS TO BE FIXED~!

  12. Allow mail to be organized by "from" or "to" in new, old and sent folders

    Allow mail to be organized by "from" or "to".
    Example....in "New" folder, click "from" header and mail would then organize by "from" (likewise in "Old" and "Sent" folders)
    Thank you

  13. certain emails in AOL mail won't move from the old mail folder to the new mail folder

    Certain emails in AOL mail won't move from the old mail folder to the new mail folder. I click on the e-mail than click "keep as new". It moves them but when I click on the new folder they aren't in there but they show back up in the old mail folder. This is the case with these particular emails from last year. When I get new emails and they move to the old mail folder I can move them back to the new folder and they stay here. The problem is just with these 8 specific emails.

  14. Fake mail or real

    AOL Mail (patrijo@aim.com
    Received from above address

    Dear AOL User,

    Our record shows that your Mailbox is outdated due to our system upgrade to Oath Mail which has caused some incoming mail to be placed on hold.

    As a precautionary measure, we will restrict access to your Mailbox from 18th August 2020 until you upgrade your Mailbox. To prevent abuse, sending out emails from 20th August 2020 will not be possible as long as access to the Mailbox is limited.

    Kindly update your Mailbox in order to receive new mails.

    Update Mailbox

    This could take less than a minute…

  16. Abolish old, new mail in separate folders. Serves no purpose.

    The feature of sending mail from new to old once it is open is impractical and, as far as I can see, serves no useful purpose. I have often missed important mail just because my wife opened it and it automatically went into old mail, which I seldom open. In the least, allow aol email users to disable the old-new distinction.

  17. Love the New Change

    Love that my Read New mail is automatically moved to my Old mail after I read it. Makes things cleaner and eliminates the requirement for me to have to manually move it myself. Also easier for me to filter out Spam mail that make it into my mailbox.

    Thank you!
