  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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. 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.

  8. No ads at the top of my e-mail list

    No ads at the top of my e-mail list. It looks like a new e-mail and I click on it by accident. Would rather have the ads on the right side.

  12. outlook unable to connect to IMAP server

    Outlook is no longer able to connect to the IMAP server. I have not made any changes to the account, so the issue must be with the server. Please review and correct.

  15. Security Notice

    Then I'll just stop using your services, since you're making it inconvenient to do so. I'm sure many users will be doing the same.

    Quit implementing protocols whose benefits outweigh the costs, it's the fastest way to lose users.

  19. no cell phone

    Have the common sense and common courtesy to recognize that, like me, some of your users use a landline and do not text. Your demand for a cell phone number and your refusal to accept a landline number is unreasonable and ridiculous. I see I am not the first to make this complaint, and in your usual manner you seem to be ignoring our input. Please stop ignoring us.
