  1. Matt Reed

    Got this threat from AOL member Matt Reed (**@aol.com):

    It is very easy to get access to ur device, I give you a tip, u'd better do something about it.
    It is unbelievable that u have not ripped your knob off yet.
    What did your mother and father teach you, they're probably embarrassed for you?
    I've heard somewhere that in order to wean one from hard onanism, his **** is smeared with mustard, what do u reckon, can it help u or it's too late?
    Even though we haven't met, but even I'm disgusted by you.
    Having gained your contacts…

    While most spam should be caught by our Spam filters, occasionally some can slip through. If that does happen it's very important to mark the email as Spam. It lets our system learn that messages from a specific place are not good and helps us make AOL Mail even better at recognizing future spam emails. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

  4. Put a limit on spam emails in the spam folder

    All my spam goes to my spam folder, does anyone know how many spam emails this folder will hold? I'm at 400 now? I figure once this spam folder is full, the spam emails will stop.

  5. Invalid E-mail Cannot be Blocked

    I constantly get spam from this e-mail address: noreply@offers.com>

    Why can't I put this in my block senders list? If they can send it, then I should be able to block it. Now, you are changing my post. At the end of the e-mail address above, there is .com&gt

  10. what are the spam rules?

    Why won't AOL tell it's members what constitutes spam? I suddenly got locked out after sending a bunch of e-mails to groups of cousins. I called for help, was forced to sign up for tech support and was told by two AOL employees they are now allowed to tell me how many e-mails sent in what amount of time qualifies as spam nor would they tell me how long after being locked out would my account be reopened.
    I had been previously told that after AOL took over from Verizon that I was no longer limited to 100 people per…

    In order to better enforce anti-spam policies, AOL does not disclose the number of recipients or emails that can be sent at one time.

    If you’ve received a notification that a limit has been met, you’ll need to wait a set amount of time before you can send more emails. Most sending limit notifications inform you of how long you’ll have to wait.

    If you’re planning to regularly send bulk email, consider looking into alternate solution.

  11. Massive spam I cannot BLOCK

    I have SETTINGS on getting email ONLY CONTACTS yet every day I get 100 + emails from a site(s) that has infinite disposable none repetitive FROM addresses. I detest those FILTERS which DO NOT FILTER. PLEASE MAKE THE ACTUAL FROM CONTACTS ONLY DO EXACTLY THAT.

  12. Possible Spam from "Aol Mail"

    I received an e-mal from "AOL Mail" stating that you would shut down on April 24th for upgrades and would need to click on a link or lose my access. Is this true or is it a scam?

  13. Way more spam now - why?

    Up until about one week ago I got almost no real spam. I frequently found things I wanted to see in the spam folder, which was moderately annoying. Now I'm getting several actual garbage spam messages a day. You flag most of them, but they never got through at all in the past. What did you change? Please change it back.

    Hi there,

    That’s correct, you never want to unsubscribe from spam when it is already in the spam folder. This can tend to confuse our internal filters and result in legitimate emails going into spam or spam emails going into the inbox.

    This action can only be performed in the inbox. If email are going into spam and are spam I would suggest leaving them there to eventually be deleted.

  19. Improve AOL mail by adding a column to the inbox allowing users to block all future mail from the sender's domain IN ONE CLICK

    This new column would be a single character wide - very similar to the Flag column or the Trash column:

    With a single click, an AOL program can create a line item in the user's Sender Filter (block-mail list). That line item would include the sender's top- and second-level domain (e.g., @spammer.com - with an asterisk before and after the '@'). Users can do this now for themselves under Spam Settings. But AOL can easily automate this tedious work for their billions of users.

    Also, this approach would make the new line item accessible to users (in their Spam…

  20. Improvement to SPAM Folder

    When I first go into my AOL email, and find a SPAM entry, I put a check in front of it, and click the SPAM button at the top of the email window. A window pops up, and asks me if I want to unscubscribe from this email? I click Yes, but it does not go to my SPAM folder until I click on the SPAM button at the top of the email window, and say No to the same question. The email moves to my SPAM folder. If I find another SPAM, I put the check mark in front…

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out. If mail is going into the spam folder automatically it is an indication that the spam filters are working. We do recommend that mail in the spam folder is not accessed unless you know for sure it is a legitimate contact. By accessing mail in spam you run the risk of confusing our internal filters or worse compromising your account.

    The unsubscribe option is only for mail you willing subscribed to such as a newsletter. You never want to unsubscribe from spam mail as it too may confuse our internal settings.

    For any further questions or concerns please feel free to reach out at https://help.aol.com/.
