  1. Advertising drop downs

    Please curate your advertising. Sadly, 8/10 men (gender slam) CANNOT IDENTIFY these tools. Trades PEOPLE might. AND PLEASE DO NOT USE A FEMALE USING A POWER TOOL WITH HAIR HANGING IN THE FIELD OF WORK.

    THINK before you post. Ever witness an accident (gender not defined) with hair or clothing causing serious injury or death? Not fun.

  2. make it easy to forward AOL spoof/phishing to your security people

    other sites have an email to which received spoof/phishing emails could be forwarded for review by their security

    one would THINK that AOL would be interested in seeing those apparent spoof/phishing emails that reference AOL accounts (that are getting through your SPAM software) >>>or maybe not

    this seems to be on the uptick and without it, use of AOL becomes a poor choice

  4. Can you please consider butting back the feature that grouped emails in the “From Box” alphabetically in order from the sender?

  5. imap folder download limit of 100k should be increased

    I tried to respond to the last time i posted this but the comments were closed.

    it has been a month since AOL noted it was working to resolve this, but no resolution.

    this 2 issues again are:

    1. Currently export.imap.mail.aol is limited to 100k. this is new. NO notice was given when this limit was instituted. this is a huge problem for many of us PAID users that have way more than that 100k per folder. used to be 1M limit. that is ok. PLEASE change it back because many of us have many folders that exceed the limit and…

  6. Can't Import Calendar Event

    It is very easy to import an event file via Classic AOL Calendar. The New Design seems to missing the import feature in the "Actions" list.

    I had to switch back to Classic AOL to find Import in the "More" list.

  7. Asterisk Wild Card

    I'm getting tons of spam messages and most of it seems to be coming from the same sender. The syntax is similar in the email addresses and off just enough so that AOL does not allow me to block them. I can no longer block domain names nor can I use the asterisk as a wild card to block similar addresses. So the spammers are changing their email address just enough to bypass my choices with AOL to block them. What can you do to investigate these people and get them to stop?

  10. See below. Could not type beyond a certain point in this space.

    In our list of contacts we are allowed up to 99 names and e-mail addresses per list. We used to be able to alphabetize names and e-mail addresses by the person's last name. Now we can only sort by the person's e-mail address, which makes no sense because people do not remember people by their e-mail address. We have over 1000 members in our organization and we need to be able to sort them by their last name. Why this was changed over 2 years ago makes no sense to us and we just found out today, October 17, 2022,…

  11. The new email which posts the mail you've clicked on to read is BAD. It doesn't allow you to see the bottom & possibly Unsubscribe to JUNK.

    I want a return to my traditional email. I don't like the black background & I don't like the fact that the top AND the bottom are 'cut off' while I read the email. This was NOT a good idea !

  13. Need better word processing abilities.

    What? No ability to use HTML, or change font other than "tiny, Small, Medium" etc? These are absolutely necessary! And a full color scheme.

  15. Has AOL lost access to its news feeds? No news on front page.

    For the last week or so, all the actual news articles have been gone from the front page, leaving only a half-dozen ad spots and the occasional celebrity-fluff piece. Problem has persisted through page reloads and computer reboots. Have HuffPost and your other suppliers cut you off?

  16. The new format is not nearly as readable or pleasant as the former.

    The Fonts, the layout, the blue dots, just about every aspect of the new mail layout is a failure. I was very deliberate in waiting and using the new format for more than a month now...and its still difficult to get used to, far less efficient and absolutely less legible. The new mail format is a complete and total failure.

    On another topic, why do you allow all this political babble on this page which is about how to "Improve AOL"? Whatever your political leanings as a business organization...your political views are not going to make or break the site…

  17. Add an action or progress meter to indicate that there really is something going on towards actual destruction of old emails . please!

    I too have an excessive amount of both old, spam, and non-categorized emails to be controlled. The last total was over 40,00 from combined usernames that I really could manage from over complicated keyboard commands of "Clicking, dragging the cursor, attempting to remember if to use the control of shift key again and when to click again and wait for the remaining blank squares to populate with the checks before automatic deletion or selection! Suggest including an Action meter graphic that shows the progress of the proper click status being made, the downward scrolling, the secondary click for indicating the…

  18. category

    When you add a new Category, make it usable for other contacts. This is stupid that you ask me to add a new Category and then when I add another contact that I want to have that same Category, it is not there. STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
