        • Remove checkbox for "All" Inbox

          Several times, I've accidentally clicked the box above the inbox and deleted everything in my inbox. I've caught it and was able to move it back, but what if I do the same in the trash box and actually delete it!?! REMOVE that check box!

              Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The engineering team is currently looking into the issue where the ‘Empty’ option (when right-clicking on the Trash folder) shows grayed out.

              As a workaround, you can open the Trash folder, select the messages you want to permanently delete, by selecting the check box in-front of each email (or select the top check box to mark all the emails), then clicking on the ‘Delete’ button above the message list.

              In case you do not see the ‘Delete’ button after selecting the messages, go to Options – Customize – and check ‘Show Button Labels’.

            • Please allow option to include a column for email size (in kb) in the regular listing

              I'd like to be able to view the size of each email (in kb or mb), in order to permit selection of very large emails that I may not wish to download to the client - or that won't download to the client. Consider adding a column to the email display list. Or add a setting with checkboxes so I can choose the columns I wish to display. Thanks for your consideration.

              • 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.

                  • E-mails

                    The new method for attaching addresses is not an improvement. One must now scroll the through all addresses alphabetically to locate an addressee. If the person's last name begins with a "W", you need to scroll through all addressees "A through V" to get to the "W's". You used to be able to highlight the "W" and then scroll to find your desired addressee. Much easier!

                                      In the past few days when I logon to AOL, my computer says the site is not secure. When I close that warning, another pops up saying that the security certificate for AOL has been revoked?

                                        • Bug: Sorted folder loses sort when all marked and set to read.

                                          To have a stable working set, i move all my incoming mail toa "Sorting" folder. Today it was set to sort by From. I clicked to check all and then set them all to 'read'. I lost my 'From' sort, had to click the header twice to regain the sort.
