  2. block spam using wildcards

    I am getting SO much spam - some of it extremely inappropriate. The user name usually starts with "renter" and ends in "info" and the site frequently ends in ".store" . Why can't I use wildcards anymore? They used to work. And, since your system sees the barrage and correctly sends it to spam, why can't the system block them before they hit the spam folder? If your system can't do it, at least give users the tools to block using wildcards.

  3. On the mobile app as soon a message is opened it goes to Old mail which is very annoying.

    Eliminate the OLD mail folder or keep opened emails in the INBOX

  6. Absolute ****

    Barrage of media spam courtesy of the US and England. The rest of the UK use this service as well. Completely disgusts me, I think your beta team must be proud of their own stupidity.
    Not one mention across the whole suite of US platforms, from Google, to Facebook, Pinterest, the lot of them, that allows me to select an option suitable to me. An option for Edinburgh, Scotland, as it moves away from the rest of the UK is not a far stretch for an aware individual. The problems you have as a country, enemies to the East and…

  7. today on AOL comments not accessible

    I have difficulty accessing my comments on Today on AOL news items. I enjoy reading the variety of comments on news items, and often make a comment myself. However, when I find out that others have replied to my comment, I am unable to find those replies. In order to find them, I must scroll through thousands of comments, until I find my own. Why the change. It did not used to be this way.

  8. There is are multiple problems with re-instating AOL addresses (@compuserve.com etc.) previously accessed via gmail incl. with 3rd party p/w

    Can AOL post specific instructions for fixing this. Error messages in gmail: "pop.aol.com doesn't support leaving messages on the server" ['leave messages on server' was NOT checked.] Also: There was a problem while connecting to pop.aol.com
    Server returned error: "Connection timed out: There may be a problem with the settings you added. Please contact your other email provider to verify the correct server name and port." Something is wrong clearly.

  12. Setting e-mail password for Outlook--where to find the setting?

    Please make it easy to find/reset the e-mail account password I need to access via Outlook. I do not need to pay even more money to avoid ads on a clunky web interface when, up until this evening, Outlook was better in every way. Trying to rebuild the connect with the password I have on record and...no joy. Easy, just change the password the server is expecting. But to what? That information is nowhere to be found! Do I have to pay $4.95 for your "free" help just to find this?

  18. Unable to block a sender

    I am attempting to block the sender .sermoteam@sermo.com. Whenever I type in sermoteam@sermo.com into the space designated to block senders, I receive the following message:
    The following characters are not allowed in e-mail addresses: <;,"\
    I cannot identify any of the disallowed characters in the sender name I am attempting to block. I have tried retyping the name as well as copying and pasting the name and get the same result.
    Please advise
