  2. How do mass download all mail in a folder

    With AOL now deactivating accounts not used for a period of time, it's imperative that we have an option to MASS DOWNLOAD all saved mail in ALL folders we've created. Even if they weren't deactivating accounts not used for long, there still MUST BE an OPTION ADDED to MASS DOWNLOAD every piece of mail INCLUDING ATTACHMENTS TO THE MAIL, without having to open 100's, if not 1000's pieces of mail and downloading them, and their attachments 1 at a time. This is an imperative option. THIS FEATURE MUST BE ADDED ASAP - and if there's a way to do it,…

  3. Keep it the way it was.

    Stop changing things. Leave well enough alone. If it is not broke, don't fix it.

  4. FIX aol mail for continued use with microsoft edge

    FIX using Microsoft Edge for accessing AOL mail. Have been using it for years and just would not work starting yesterday. Followed the instructions your chat advisers gave with no success. Had to install chrome. However, I was able to access my second aol mail account in Edge. Please FIX this problem for all of us dissatisfied customers. And tell the chat people to stop ending the session while people are following their directions.

  7. Space restrictions

    The area available for comments or replies is much too small..It is nearly impossible to get any amount of facts or pertinent information posted.
    Also the site has tons of slow loading ads, notices and whatall that slow down the response and typing. This is most annoying and discourages the use of your site. Look at Yahoo's site and accommodations the provide users... and you will see the difference. Thanks for listening..J.R.

  9. Here's a mine waiting to be stepped on...

    Don't do what I just did! I was nearing the end of a detailed email I composed, when I went to another site to copy something I needed to paste. When I back-arrowed to Compose, everything I had written was gone and unretrievable. This AOL non-solution has been around for two decades. Isn't that long enough to fix glaringly poor programming. I was forced to switch from Verizon-hosted email to this train wreck. I suspect that Verizon or Oath broke it when they began leveraging it for Ad and profiling revenue. Email used to be a simple and essential tool.…

  10. SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRESET INTERVALS

    SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRE-SET INTERVALS RATHER THAN MANUALLY: When composing an email, it would save much frustration for drafts to be saved automatically at intervals, for example every 2 minutes, rather than to do a manual save to drafts at intervals. Manual saves are forgotten more often than not, and that means losing what has been composed for random unintended/unexpected reasons. THANK YOU!

  11. addressbook

    Put the **** addressbook as an icon.

    Can never find it. To edit.

    Oh I am sure it is some convoluted place.

    Just don't think I need to go to google to find your addressbook should be more intuitive. Don't you think?

  12. When you open an email why is the toolbar at the top in white and shadowed so you can barely read delete, forward, send etc.

    When an email is open, the tool bar at the top is a very light shade and the send, delete, forward commands are white and barely visible. Why is it this way and why was it changed. Please fix it.

  13. Dark Theme Background option!

    I'd like there to be an option where you can choose, not just the "AOL" Logo theme only, but also the Background too. (Like the whole screen.) The White (Standard) screen can become a real Eye-Strain at times + also cause Headaches at times too. The Black Tone would Really help out lots of us AOL Customers, when entering our Email Pages! PLEASE MAKE THIS COME TO BE AS ANOTHER UPDATE!

    Thanks!

  14. backing up of emails

    for people who use a paying service, there should be an unlimited time to have you emails restored. 10 days is really ridiculous. what are we really paying for? there are a lot of other free services out there.

  17. Your e-mail editor should include an option for a user to change/delete all instances of a given text string.

    Include an option in your write e-mail editor for a user to change/delete all instances of a given text string. You used to have that feature. I don't know why you removed it.

  18. No Place to find Amount of Space Consumed

    I have looked everywhere on the screen, and there is no place to show how much of the TB, of allocated storage space, has been consumed.

    The provided steps do not work- any other suggestions?

    Please follow the steps below, in order to check the storage on your account:


    1. Visit the Privacy Dashboard page here: https://policies.oath.com/us/en/oath/privacy/dashboard/index.html

    2. Select AOL from the list of brands.

    3. Click Sign in at the top to sign in and see your account data.

    4. Click on “AOL Mail” below Your Products section, in order to see the storage and other information.

  19. Just Came Over From Netscape -- When Can I Go Back To Those Settings / Views / Layouts?

    Netscape mail was VERY organized and viewable - 20 messages per page, easy navigation to other pages and folders, simple links to move / delete / spam list messages. This AOL page seems to be nothing more than Outlook in disguise.
