  1. AOL is not concern about your convenience!

    It's very obvious that AOL does NOT have your interests at heart! Just look at all the pleas and requests to put back the spam blocks to stop unwanted mail and yet NOTHING has been done about it by AOL. THEY DON'T CARE about WHAT YOU THINK OR WOULD LIKE!!! They're ONLY out for themselves! Close your accounts and go somewhere else. There are other places out there, that will block unwanted spam mail!

  5. Unread mail

    I used to be able to sort and find all of my unread mail. I can no longer do that. It would be nice to have that feature back very soon. Thanks.

  6. Sorting the Inbox

    Would you make a toggle on/off option to see only UNREAD mail in the inbox?

  7. Does this mean what everyone says that AOL is unsafe and better to use other email addresses.

    Move emails that are more safe and modern. Trying to retrieve recently deleted emails to no avail. On my ipad there is no recently deleted email tab. So i went on a desk top and there was one but there was nothing. I was told aol email is old fashioned and full of viruses. Does that mean change emails and aol is not dependable? Used all your recorded suggestions and none work.

  8. Adverstisment on AOL Opening Page

    AOL on its opening page present excellent articles one followed by another. Originally it was a pleasure to read and learn from these Pictorial Articles. But then it appears some smart Alex at AOL thought of interspersing those pages with Advertisements to the point that these ads have become an irritant to the reader. I personally at first skipped these ads. Now I do not even Look at those Articles. I get them better at other sites. I believe that others must be doing the same. I came to AOL for efficiency & security in communicating with my addressee and…

  9. Offer a right-click menu option to restrict spam addresses.

    Give the option to restrict spam addresses or entire domains with a right-click menu option on a spam e-mail, rather than having to jump through hoops to individually add each one to the restricted list.

  10. Put it back to how the mail account was!

    Put it back to how the mail account interface was! I really dislike the awkward navigation to get a simple task done, it’s NOT user friendly.
    It’s just change for the sake of change, not an improvement.

  12. AOL web mail search fails on long phrases

    I took the subject of a common email and searched for it, to delete them all, but it failed to find these exact matches. I removed some words and it found them, so your search function has a solid bug with longer phrases!

  13. delete email account without current access

    it is currently impossible to delete an email address without already having access to the email address, if you ask for help all that happens is that the request is appended to the list of complaints that the address cannot be deleted which does not address the problem. you need to create a way for people to access you about their email even if their aol email is not working

  16. Off line access

    Go back to the previous system. It allowed you to read saved msgs, contacts, etc when off line. The new system is not an improvement at all. We need access to our info without having to sign on.

  20. How do mass download all mail in a folder

    With AOL now deactivating accounts not used for a period of time, it's imperative that we have an option to MASS DOWNLOAD all saved mail in ALL folders we've created. Even if they weren't deactivating accounts not used for long, there still MUST BE an OPTION ADDED to MASS DOWNLOAD every piece of mail INCLUDING ATTACHMENTS TO THE MAIL, without having to open 100's, if not 1000's pieces of mail and downloading them, and their attachments 1 at a time. This is an imperative option. THIS FEATURE MUST BE ADDED ASAP - and if there's a way to do it,…
