  1. Need an option to Delete a Sent Item

    Some networks allow users to delete a sent item before it is opened.
    Since the "Save Draft" and "Send" buttons are next to each other, we need an "Unsend" button.

  5. I HATE being forced into using red fonts from links, not being allowed to change the color. GET RID OF THEM!

    I think AOL should not be dictating the color of links I choose to embed in my email in RED FONT. UGLY! I can't stand them.

    The color RED should not be written in stone. We need to be able to change the color. RED is not always palatable, and I, for one, have trouble viewing the color red. It's ******* my eyes. I can't even change the color to a dull red!

    Fix it, please!

  6. Blinking words within emails

    It would be great if there was a way to not only highlight words in an email, but to have them 'blinking' as well.

  7. Delete ALL messages

    When I select all msg to be deleted AOL always asks if I'm sure. Of course I'm sure or I wouldn't do it! How can I avoid this annoying msg?

  10. Updating Account Information

    Lately AOL has been asking me to update my contact information by adding additional phone numbers, email addresses, etc. You seem only to accept mobile numbers, but you don't say so. When I add my landline number, you assume it is a mobile. Then I just have to remove it. This happens on several accounts.

  11. 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…

  12. Create "move to" folder algorithm for move "after" or "if older than" date

    I have a massive inbox. I would like to move bulk mail into "year" folders. If I could at least indicate all of like "2017" emails to a folder I could reduce the inbox to maybe 4 back months of emails, and have yearly saved folders.

  13. Allow the option to display full name and/or email address instead of username only on the email homepage.

    At present, on the email page that lists the emails, on the top right area (next to home, visit blog, and favorites; above the sign out and options links) there is no option to change the displayed name. Only the username is shown. It would be great if there could be an option to change the username displayed to email address and/or full name.

  17. AOL blocks me from using my other AOL account, demanding verification through email or TXT message or through third email account (associate

    AOL should be less parochial.
    I am traveling, and AOL notice "unusal activity" - blocking me from accessing my other email account, while demanding some form of "verification" involving my cell phone. I DO NOT USE CELL PHONE WHILE TRAVELING ABROAD. AND I MAY NOT HAVE ONE. I HAVE PROBLEM WITH LOGGING TO MY ASSOCIATED EMAIL ACCOUNT, WHICH IS RARELY USED. Getting login info for the side email account is troublesome, and demanding it is unexpected. Please devise less difficult ways of verification. AND: users of AMERICA (onLine) may sometimes leave their parish and visit monks in Tibet. Or in…

  19. let under sixteens use aol mail

    Under sixteens still might need mail. Just because they are younger it does not mean they do not need it. My daughter is at secondary school and needs email to get help from teachers and sometimes her classmates for homework. She can not have one because all email sights we have tried you have to be over 16! it is a joke AOL mail we all need an ANSWER to this VOTE IF YOU AGREE!!!

  20. reading pane

    Why no reading pane option for left of screen? The way it is now is the most inconvenient way to view. Choice to move to left would actually make using the pane easy. See Outlook for template.
