  1. Allow movement of unwanted sender addresses to the"Block" area with one key stroke?

    Your new systems stinks. Please let us have the possibility to move unwanted senders' addresses to the "Block" area with one key stroke. I am not sitting here for the next 4 hours moving 35 of 39 ******/pornographic address one by one - especially if some of the addresses are more than 25 characters long!

  5. TRUMP Political Ad

    Why is Trump survey appearing on my sign in page. Then to top it off the only options are that he is doing Great, Good, or Okay, Did you all get a hefty check and sell out in order to put this on the AOL page? It is Fake news and Fake Survey? I am disgusted it would even appear on my screen. Regardless of my political affiliation. Seems to be I was exploited.

  6. Spam - I want the ability to block all domains coming from ".uk"

    I noticed that most of the spam that I receive comes from domains ending in ".co.uk" or ".org.uk" and I would like the ability to block domains that have those endings that are not in my address book or listed as approved senders. Is there a way to restrict these domains? Also, I would like AOL to return the option to block emails containing specific words or phrases. I have a paid account and it is very important to me that I be able to have the ability to restrict the excessive spam emails and emails containing ****** content. If…

  7. ordering emalis

    I have the basic version of aol mail ( Free version) and used to be able to order my emails by From, subject , date etc.
    However, now I am only able to order my emails by date and not any other column. Is this because I have the free version of AOL mail?

  8. 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. Stop closing comments when AOL's proposed solution doesn't work

    I am having problems with that ReCaptcha-Prove-You're-Not-A-Robot pseudosecurity , just like a lot of other users. So one of us complained, on Nov 21, 2018, and several others provided comments indicating related problems. Then AOL gave us all a link to a page to something about "What to do if you're having problems proving you're not a robot", which had some obvious suggestions, but didn't actually address my problem or some of the other users'. But now AOL has closed the comments, and so those of us still having the problem have to start a new thread. You know, since…

  10. Dark Theme Background option!

    I'd like there to be an option where you can choose, not just the "AOL" Logo theme only, but also the Background too. (Like the whole screen.) The White (Standard) screen can become a real Eye-Strain at times + also cause Headaches at times too. The Black Tone would Really help out lots of us AOL Customers, when entering our Email Pages! PLEASE MAKE THIS COME TO BE AS ANOTHER UPDATE!

    Thanks!

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Annoying opening logo

    Please change the "OH NO! Logo that graces my screen every time I log in. I log out correctly, but this seems to imply something is wrong with my log out. I don't need something annoying me when I log in.

  19. Allow scheduled sending of emails

    Why can't we compose an email and schedule when we want that email sent? That is a very useful feature when you are for example, catching up on many things over a weekend and sending business emails you want delivered Monday morning so they are hopefully not lost in the email abyss on the other end over the weekend.
    There are also times when you think of something needed but know it should really go later so you write an email as you think of it. but want it sent at the appropriate time.
