  1. Inbox

    I would like to have all of my unread emails at the top of the inbox. This option is available in iPad & iPhone AOL apps, but not on MacBook Pro.

  2. Display all new emails in the main body of the email area instead of indiv folders.

    Instead of putting new emails in their folders automatically give the user a choice. I lke my new emails to be in the main area so I can review, move or delete without having to open every folder. I don't like this new feature. I would prefer the same features used in the Yahoo emails.

  3. Please change the stationary. It hasn't been changed in years! Birthday cards needs to be changed also!

    Change stationary pictures. I've used most of them for years and people notice I send the same ones every year!

  4. Go back to Classic, it has the features that are critical.

    All word processing options in classic are critical. Such as, spelling, Font selection, underscore, etc. They do not exist in the new format. i will have to give up AOL, after being with them from their beginning.

    Also, even with an AOL tech the new format will not scroll in Safari.

  5. make the boxes next to emails larger, I keep opening spam I'm tring to delete, then lose all I've previously marked to delete.

    Very aggravating how tiny they've made the boxes next to the individual emails. You spend minutes marking a ton of spam for deletion only to have to do it all over again because you don't hit that little box just right. Has AOL done this on purpose so that we click on and open spam?

  6. password generator

    I don't know if you guys are still experiencing problems with the password generator, but i was able to solve mine. I still can't generate a password on my PC, but i was able to generate a password on my iPhone. I copied this password, emailed it to myself, and then pasted it into the MS Outlook when prompted. I can now send/receive AOL/Verizon email in MS Outlook.

    why? what was wrong with the old version? This new version takes up too much space at the with the stupid ad banner at the top. My reply is AFTER the original message? Does the recipient have to scroll down to get the new message I am sending them? Why are the text controls down at the bottom? Very inconvenient. Instead of being able to see about 15-20 email selections all at once, you put them by date or timeframe and a person now has to scroll down A LOT searching for something?

    Why don't you ask people what they…

  14. By not changing

    Here is a idea as old as the hills and still rings true till this day.

    HOW ABOUT NOT FIXING SOMETHING THAT IS NOT BROKEN.
    See I use AOL because I love it. I have had it for years. I hate Gmail Yahoo and All other email sites. I love this one and I don't see anything wrong. I know if you change it then you'll start throwing ads popping all up and bull like that. Seriously you know you have to pay for it somehow. Save your money Sit back and relax you have done a great job so…

  17. Android phone mail.

    In an open email, the pop-up selection on the MORE menu - could you please consider moving the "Mark as spam" option lower in the choices and not at the top of the list. I don't know how many times I have accidentally hit than instead of "Mark as unread".

  18. Fix the EP-5000 error message I get every time I try to forward an email with an attachment

    Fix the EP-5000 eror message given EVERY TIME you try to forward an email with an attachment. I've called several times about this. Reps just say "they have never heard of it" and their supervisors are working on it and to be "patient." Unacceptable in this day and age not to be able to forward simple emails with simple attachments.
