  1. Put it back to how the mail account was!

    Put it back to how the mail account interface was! I really dislike the awkward navigation to get a simple task done, it’s NOT user friendly.
    It’s just change for the sake of change, not an improvement.

  2. 1 Improving Email's spell check features and also 2. Folder arrangements

    Two points:

    1. The e-mail's spell-check has the feature "skip" Why doesn't AOL e-mail's Spell Check has the feature of "Skip All"? This will help in speeding spell check if I have a unique word such as SplChk coming several times in the body of the e-mail.

    2. In the Folders arrangement, why doesn't AOL e-mail has the feature of "Nested Folders" such that we can seep several folders in one folder?

    2.

  6. Can the delete, spam, and not spam buttons be colored or moved apart?

    Can the delete, spam, and not spam buttons be colored or moved apart?They are too close and accidents occur. Please move the button apart and add a color change:
    examples: red to delete, yellow for spam, orange for not spam, green for keep as new.
    Or allow customization to do so.

  7. Support multiple server connections to cache for third party clients under IMAP

    When a third-party client such as Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail enables multiple server connections to cache for an IMAP account, accessing folders initiates additional login authorizations which will eventually be rejected when too many requests are made within a given period of time. This is very frustrating for the user, since he or she has in fact "done everything right" when setting up the account. As a workaround, PLEASE advise the user when setting up his e-mail account under a third-party program to set the maximum number of server connections to cache to 1:

  9. AOL Spam mail delete buttons are incorrect.

    To delete Spam mail there is an empty button in both New mail and Spam mail. In Spam mail after pressing empty there is an unnecessary confirmation needed. In New mail after pressing empty Spam there is a missing confirmation and users can mistakenly loose mail without seeing the Spam folder first or at least stop the action. The buttons need to be reprogrammed in the right places. This change is urgently needed.

  10. Why do you always make thing harder to use?????

    Bring back the frop down menu for my email names. You gave us the ability to use seven different names, and it used to be that there was a drop down menu that showed which name had email, and you could simply click on it. Now you hae to type in the entire name of each different email to see if there's anythiing new. It was much easier before, you made it a lot more difficult. Why? Also, AOL is terrible at sending more than one image at a time - other ISPs are much better at this - can't…

  11. change default address

    I have used the AOL system since it was netscape.net. Recently I noticed that when I send mail, the default for my own address is the netscape.net version. Even though I often add my current AOL address in the message, I find that some people have picked up the old address. How can I change the settings on my account so 1) the default when I write a new message is my AOL address while at the same time 2) the earlier netscape.net address is not eliminated?

  12. hovering over "From" entries should show the sender complete URL.

    This is needed due to the huge number of fake messages containing as names legit places, but the real URL proves them to be fakes for phishing. AOL had it for a while but now it is lost.

  13. functionality

    It would be great when within an email, there was a "back to inbox" arrow that would take you back to the Inbox, rather than having to click on the Inbox in the left pane. (Similar to what gmail already has). Just a thought for easier navigation.

  15. Make the tabs a little bigger for people with fat fingers like me

    Make the boxes bigger so I hit the right button when I'm typing. It would be nice to be able to hit the send once. Or tap the side menu and the right thing beingclicked

  16. Keep putting written e-mails into draft, go to retrieve it and it's not there only subject and receiver.

    Hold e-mails in drafts complete after they have been written might be a good idea. Stop erasing work done, AOL

  18. You may have cost me my biggest client.

    DO NOT MERGE THIS WITH ANY OTHER REQUEST. IT IS NOT THE SAME!!!!!!!!
    I used to be able to have the spam filter turned off. Suddenly, AOL started deciding what was spam. I don't see this on Outlook where I collect my message. I had eight orders from one company go into spam. Give back the option to disable the spam blocker. I can decide for myself what I want to keep and what I want to delete.
