  1. Forwarding Several from My Inbox

    I would like to forward several e-mails at one time from my Inbox to a work e-mail address. Currently, I can only forward one at a time, but with 60 e-mails a day in my AOL Inbox, this gets very tedious. I could understand a reasonable limit on the most that can be forwarded at one instance, but a limit of 'one' is not reasonable.

  2. How can I make chronological list of all my emails with a contact?

    My idea to to have AOL enable me to make a chronological list of my emails with a contact over time. I would think this should have been a feature since I started this account 20 years ago. My second idea is to just leave AOL permanently and take my emails with me. But AOL won't allow this either. Why does AOL disrespect its members by making it difficult to communicate with an actual person at AOL???

    Oh, it seems I MUST accept your terms. Why doesn't AOL believe it MUST treat us with respect???

  4. Saving emails on my PC

    Why can't I save my emails to my PC and not have to sign in if I want to read one I saved. The old system was so much smoother and easy to use. Thanks.

  9. Searching mails.

    Allow the user to select the file they would like to search. I do not always want to search through deleted files. The default to ALL files produces too much junk. The options should be for the user to select new, old, sent or deleted mail. Not all by default.

  11. I need an option to send an email directly to my PC letting me know that I have email in my spam folder on the AOL site.

    I automatically download email to my PC using the PC mail program, so I don't log into the AOL sire very often. And I forget I should check periodically for spam on the AOL site which is not really spam that I should release to my PC. It would be great to have a spam option to send an email directly to my PC letting me know that I have spam in the AOL folder that I can check.

  12. Bring back the original AOL 7.0 or 7.9 that WORKED! The current Verizon/Oath Brands email is terrible. Too many technical problems.

    Bring back the original AOL 7.5 or 7.9 system that WORKED! The current
    Verizon/Oath Brands system is absolutely terrible. Can't forward anything, can't retrieve emails anymore, can't find pictures, no spam controls....its' awful. I am having to use another email client to get my
    emails without all the hassle from the Oath Brands version of AOL
    which does not work.
    Fix it!

  14. The area to compose your email keeps shrinking. It is now less than 1/4 of the screen. It needs to double, at least. Get rid of the junk.

    Most of the stuff on the screen has nothing to do with writing an email. All of that stuff should disappear when you open the pane for writing. The address and subject line should scroll out of view as soon as you reach the bottom of the pane. The autosave bar should be eliminated. The URL line and the search line should be hidden.

  15. Return to current position in Inbox after readi

    When I'm done reading an email and I return to the Inbox, it goes to the START (most recent) of the emails. When I'm going through my emails top-to-bottom and I'm several pages down the list, I then have to repeatedly scroll down to re-locate my place. I think it would make reading emails MUCH easier if you provided a "Back" button to return to the same place in the Inbox as the email that was just read. Thanks, Alan

  18. Shut off Autosave function of the Draft or at least give the option to shut it off - annoying; or let us manually save a draft!

    I want to shut off the "autosave" function of an email draft. It's annoying and the autosaving is interfering with the sending function. At a minimum give us the option of manually saving a draft. We used to be able to shut it off under the Compose settings, but I can't see it. I'm using a desktop. Please shut it off!

  20. Wild cards (*) in email address filters no longer allowed

    Could wild cards in email address filters be allowed again. eg: Send *@anywhere.com to MyFolder. This used to work up until a few months ago.
