  2. Need to be able to edit or delete default Archive folder

    The default Archive folder in AOL mail cannot be edited or deleted. Users need to be able to better customize this folder for personal use. Especially helpful would be 1) the ability to change its name, 2) moving entire folders into it for tabbed or layered archiving, and 3) deleting it entirely if desired.

  3. Allow movement of unwanted sender addresses to the"Block" area with one key stroke?

    Your new systems stinks. Please let us have the possibility to move unwanted senders' addresses to the "Block" area with one key stroke. I am not sitting here for the next 4 hours moving 35 of 39 ******/pornographic address one by one - especially if some of the addresses are more than 25 characters long!

  7. How do mass download all mail in a folder

    With AOL now deactivating accounts not used for a period of time, it's imperative that we have an option to MASS DOWNLOAD all saved mail in ALL folders we've created. Even if they weren't deactivating accounts not used for long, there still MUST BE an OPTION ADDED to MASS DOWNLOAD every piece of mail INCLUDING ATTACHMENTS TO THE MAIL, without having to open 100's, if not 1000's pieces of mail and downloading them, and their attachments 1 at a time. This is an imperative option. THIS FEATURE MUST BE ADDED ASAP - and if there's a way to do it,…

  8. Keep it the way it was.

    Stop changing things. Leave well enough alone. If it is not broke, don't fix it.

  9. FIX aol mail for continued use with microsoft edge

    FIX using Microsoft Edge for accessing AOL mail. Have been using it for years and just would not work starting yesterday. Followed the instructions your chat advisers gave with no success. Had to install chrome. However, I was able to access my second aol mail account in Edge. Please FIX this problem for all of us dissatisfied customers. And tell the chat people to stop ending the session while people are following their directions.

  12. Space restrictions

    The area available for comments or replies is much too small..It is nearly impossible to get any amount of facts or pertinent information posted.
    Also the site has tons of slow loading ads, notices and whatall that slow down the response and typing. This is most annoying and discourages the use of your site. Look at Yahoo's site and accommodations the provide users... and you will see the difference. Thanks for listening..J.R.

  14. Here's a mine waiting to be stepped on...

    Don't do what I just did! I was nearing the end of a detailed email I composed, when I went to another site to copy something I needed to paste. When I back-arrowed to Compose, everything I had written was gone and unretrievable. This AOL non-solution has been around for two decades. Isn't that long enough to fix glaringly poor programming. I was forced to switch from Verizon-hosted email to this train wreck. I suspect that Verizon or Oath broke it when they began leveraging it for Ad and profiling revenue. Email used to be a simple and essential tool.…

  15. SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRESET INTERVALS

    SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRE-SET INTERVALS RATHER THAN MANUALLY: When composing an email, it would save much frustration for drafts to be saved automatically at intervals, for example every 2 minutes, rather than to do a manual save to drafts at intervals. Manual saves are forgotten more often than not, and that means losing what has been composed for random unintended/unexpected reasons. THANK YOU!

  16. addressbook

    Put the **** addressbook as an icon.

    Can never find it. To edit.

    Oh I am sure it is some convoluted place.

    Just don't think I need to go to google to find your addressbook should be more intuitive. Don't you think?

  17. When you open an email why is the toolbar at the top in white and shadowed so you can barely read delete, forward, send etc.

    When an email is open, the tool bar at the top is a very light shade and the send, delete, forward commands are white and barely visible. Why is it this way and why was it changed. Please fix it.

  18. Dark Theme Background option!

    I'd like there to be an option where you can choose, not just the "AOL" Logo theme only, but also the Background too. (Like the whole screen.) The White (Standard) screen can become a real Eye-Strain at times + also cause Headaches at times too. The Black Tone would Really help out lots of us AOL Customers, when entering our Email Pages! PLEASE MAKE THIS COME TO BE AS ANOTHER UPDATE!

    Thanks!

  19. backing up of emails

    for people who use a paying service, there should be an unlimited time to have you emails restored. 10 days is really ridiculous. what are we really paying for? there are a lot of other free services out there.
