  2. unroll.me

    I have loved tying this inbox to the Unroll.me website to create a daily digest for my sales related emails. Lately (since early September), your process disconnects this daily rather than letting my permissions last more than 24-36 hours. Please go back to what was working before, or at least work with their team to find a working solution so I don't change my subscriptions to another email account and stop using my aol mail.

  3. Screen the pop up ads in the right column

    Todays pop up ad is a link to a Bitcoin scam using Peter Jones as bait. Now I'm happy to have ads relating to what I have browsed recently but did think that Aol would screen them. Having identified that this is a scam I doubt I'll every look at the ads again

  4. Account Migration Issue

    Verizon transferred my e-mail account to Frontier who didn't want it and it ended up with AOL. This has created much grief and cost for me. Isn't someone interested in compensation to me for the problems that have been caused?

  5. I am unable to paste from the Windows Clipboard to and AOL e-mail. That would be a good feature

    Using the Windows Snipping tool, select an item to snip, the have the ability to paste directly into e-mail. That is easy with Outlook.

  6. PPlease return the "block emails containing these words" filter - IT WORKED -y remove it?

    Return the spam setting for blocking emails that contained specific words. I have NO IDEA why you would remove it - and looking at all of the exact same complaints I don't know why you would not have returned it to spam setting. Adding the email address does nothing because they just send **** with a new address -why should I pay you for this inconvenience? I accept better for my money.

  7. Verifying other accounts does not need done more than once or twice a year

    Please provide option WHEN (such as 60 days, 200 days) the user wants to verify accounts. I am using another AOL account, but cannot be in both accounts at the same time. I have to find another device, if one is available, or jump back and forth between accounts.

  8. Can't change display name on Android Google Chrome (and other options)

    There is no option on Google Chrome on an Android to access many options for my settings and preferences. This is very frustrating.

  12. Way too much spam and a friending option is needed.

    AOL should provide an automatic block and delete spam emails feature instead of letting them get to the spam folder, especially if the sender is not friended. If there was a friending request feature that would let the recipient know that someone wants to friend them that would be different, then the recipient could accept or decline. That is an option that would be useful.

  16. Merge Yahoo Account

    It would be nice to be able to link or merge my Yahoo and AOL accounts. A combined contacts list would be helpful to update details in one place instead of two. And a combined email inbox would make it easier to stay up to date with friends. The AOL and Yahoo mail look and feel have converged; it would be great to go further and unit the two services.

  19. Auto Save Attachments

    Give the option to open or save attachments.. I hate that your webmail auto downloads attachments to my devices!! That should be my choice. It should open in either the reading pane of the email, or another window on the browser. NOT TO MY COMPUTER STORAGE. I have to use the email for work and it is truly a pain and inconvenience to have to download all of the attachments and then search for them and delete them!
