  1. Increase the maximum allowed Filter Settings - 50 is not enough

    The Filter Settings, with their limited function, require us to set one filter per each action. With a maximum of 50, this is not enough. Either increase the maximum number of filters or add better functionality to the filter settings. For example, with Gmail you can add multiple email addresses, comma separated within curly brackets to tell all my subscriptions to filter to my "Subscriptions" folder, just as an example.

  2. It’s 2020!

    As AOL Mail is a bit old now, it needs upgrading to a more simplistic, futuristic look. That would make it excellent, and worth using.

  3. You can improve AOL mail by putting back the when read feature. It is a pain not having it.

  5. Allow scheduled sending of emails

    Why can't we compose an email and schedule when we want that email sent? That is a very useful feature when you are for example, catching up on many things over a weekend and sending business emails you want delivered Monday morning so they are hopefully not lost in the email abyss on the other end over the weekend.
    There are also times when you think of something needed but know it should really go later so you write an email as you think of it. but want it sent at the appropriate time.

  11. Advertisements

    You are allowing advertisements from . This is a scam company. You do not receive the same clothing as advertised. You receive from an address in Chino, Ca. When you want to return the item for a refund, the Company tells you that you have to send it to China at your own expense - which by the way is over $100.00 in shipping costs. Stop showing their advertisements .

  13. Stop removing features. I'm still paying you for the service.

    My idea is simple. Return to me what I had before. I'm still paying you for my AOL account. Stop removing features. It's soon not going to be worth it.

  14. Stop closing comments when AOL's proposed solution doesn't work

    I am having problems with that ReCaptcha-Prove-You're-Not-A-Robot pseudosecurity , just like a lot of other users. So one of us complained, on Nov 21, 2018, and several others provided comments indicating related problems. Then AOL gave us all a link to a page to something about "What to do if you're having problems proving you're not a robot", which had some obvious suggestions, but didn't actually address my problem or some of the other users'. But now AOL has closed the comments, and so those of us still having the problem have to start a new thread. You know, since…

  15. Adverstisment on AOL Opening Page

    AOL on its opening page present excellent articles one followed by another. Originally it was a pleasure to read and learn from these Pictorial Articles. But then it appears some smart Alex at AOL thought of interspersing those pages with Advertisements to the point that these ads have become an irritant to the reader. I personally at first skipped these ads. Now I do not even Look at those Articles. I get them better at other sites. I believe that others must be doing the same. I came to AOL for efficiency & security in communicating with my addressee and…

  17. 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.

  18. 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!
