    Stop running 'unseen' ads in the background in the email. It slows my computer down to a near stop in the email. The message comes up 'This web page is using significant energy, etc. I finally clicked 'control' on that warning, and up comes an entire ad.

  3. Need to be able to TURN OFF the SPAM filter. If no addresses are flagged, ALL should be allowed thru!

    Need to be able to TURN OFF the spam filter. If no addresses are flagged, ALL should be allowed thru! "Teaching my spam filter" is a truly silly idea, highly impractical!

  4. FLAWS and INCONVENIENCES Need Correction


    1. It takes too long to pull down a box, when the options all USED TO appear automatically on the top line where you now have the useless "Sponsored" that does NOTHING in which I am interested.


    2. Even using the pull-down box, I can't find a way to FORWARD.


    3. Put back the SENDER in the first column. I know what I want to read by seeing who sent it. I DO NOT want to have to read a long line before getting all the way to the right side to see who sent the message.


    4. WARN us when you're going to…

  7. Give us back the desktop software.

    You had a really good desktop program and now it's almost like any other web based server.

  8. Could you make it 2 clicks to delete mail & picture files to prevent accidental deletions

    I once accidentally deleted all my mail files with a wrong click which thankfully AOL retrieved for me. But since then I have noticed to delete my spam files it takes 2 clicks & I am asked if I really want to delete them but it only takes 1 click to delete my regular mail & files. Could the 2 click & verification be added to those files as well ???

  10. screen advertising better before accepting it.

    Please stop posting ads that are in foreign languages. It's very disturbing.

  11. Delete ALL messages

    When I select all msg to be deleted AOL always asks if I'm sure. Of course I'm sure or I wouldn't do it! How can I avoid this annoying msg?

  12. Place "recently deleted" after sent so you don't have to go back. Also put back "Save" and "Save as"

  13. Make it so I can use my iPad to block email addresses because none of your mobile apps have the option to do so.

    I should be able to use all of the things I can on a computer, while logged in to AOL, as I should on my iPad? That just kind of makes sense.

  15. You can improve this site by not showing the president's face each and every day!

    Do Donald Trump have stock in AOL.COM? If he is not paying for his face on here, why do I see it every time I log on. You asked my opinion that's it.

  19. deleted mail

    There should be a setting that when you close the email a dialog box comes up to ask if you want to permanently delete deleted mail. This will keep the folder empty. I forget to enpty the deleted and it gets a lot in it.

  20. We need sub folders inside any folder.

    We need sub folders inside any folder. It does not make sense to create a new folder any time without the chance to group them!
