  2. Fix E-mail

    How about returning to the old way when it comes to sending an e-mail to deleting an e-mail. It now takes me more time so what is the benefit to all. Thank you for letting me vent but down deep I know it won't change.

    Please make sure the email addresses are complete, including @DomainExample.com . In case the domain name is not included in the email address, the username will be treated as an AOL account and @aol.com will automatically be added at the end.

  5. bookmarks no longer working from aol

    Cannot transfer to another site via bookmark in MS Edge for the past month or so, must open another tab and access the bookmarked site from there. This used to work just fine - clearing the cookies and other suggested remedies do not do the trick.

    While we do our best to provide the most relevant information and solutions to our members, we can only provide assistance for AOL or one of our other products or services.

    We recommend that you contact Microsoft support for assistance.

  6. Allow a search a contact in the full contact list to fidn them and allow editing their information

    Searching the quick contact list lets me insert the contact into the email. If I want to edit any of a contacts information I have to go through the whole list of contacts to find them to make any changes to their profile etc..

    You can disable the option to automatically check spelling before sending a message. Go to mail.aol.com-Options-Mail Settings-Compose-Sending and uncheck the box from ‘’Check spelling before sending messages’’. Scroll down and save settings.

    I currently have over 800 emails in my spam folder. I thought the limit was 250.

    If the weather on your homepage is incorrect, please verify your location. This can be done by making sure your correct City, State is in the top left of your Welcome Screen. If it is not, please click “Update Your Location” under Local News and Weather, enter your Zip Code and press Save. Then try going to Weather.aol.com to see if this information is aligned with our weather source Weather.com.

    Also, please clear cache, cookies, history, and footprints in your browser then repeat the instructions: https://help.aol.com/articles/clear-cookies-cache-history-and-footprints-in-your-browser.

    If the issue persists, email us at aolmailquestions@aol.com.

    In case the picture is embedded in the email body, you can right-click on it and select ‘Save as’ in order to save it on your computer. If the picture is an attachment in the email, you can click on the file name (in yellow) at the top of the email, to download a local copy.

  12. This is not an idea but a complaint. I keep getting these AOLReminder messages that I have not requested or asked for. Please stop them.

    This is the 2nd request to stop these aolreminder messages I keep getting in my inbox with no way to unsubscribe or stop them. Please stop them or tell me how to do so. They are extremely aggravating & I have no intention of signing in to whatever they are pushing!!

  13. The new format is terrible--the type is so small and run together it's nearly impossible to read. I need ALL new mail not 2 weeks!

    My idea is to go back to the old format! Impossible to read. Impossible to access more than 2 weeks of email--one scroll! Either fix this fast, or I'm going elsewhere. I've been with aol since the beginning but this is ridiculous and impossible to deal with!

    The format of incoming mail changed? Incoming mail "from" changed position from the left side to the right past the middle position? Is this correct and automatic? I did not request this unless this is appropriate from AOL. Does something need to be done or is this ok? thanks in advance.
