  1. ordering emalis

    I have the basic version of aol mail ( Free version) and used to be able to order my emails by From, subject , date etc.
    However, now I am only able to order my emails by date and not any other column. Is this because I have the free version of AOL mail?

  2. 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.

  4. Hey AOL - how about less emphasis on ads, and more attention to your customers?

    It is extremely frustrating to have to put up with no less than 4 full screens of advertising just to actually get to my Email!! Separating the Login screen from the Password screen, just so AOL can sell more ad revenue, wastes my time, slows the process and is very annoying. Also, I notice constant problems with email loading and navigation, but those stupid, annoying banner ads always come right up!!

  5. It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app.

    It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app. Management of my email without these filters is quite cumbersome. You used to have them. Please include them in the next (hopefully very soon) update. Thank you!

  6. Give us back the desktop software.

    You had a really good desktop program and now it's almost like any other web based server.

  8. Mass delete using search

    We should be able to search for keywords and delete all emails associated with one click. That was the case before.

  9. Email list goes back to top

    When I open an email (clicking from the emails in the list), it reverts back to the top of the new messages list. Then I have to scroll all the way back to where I was. That is really a problem if going back many pages of new mail. It may be difficult to find the place again. Would be nice of you could go through mail and read one by one staying in place where you wer in the list

  11. searching for one email only

    please give us back the ability to search through our emails alphabetically. Why has that disappeared? Bloody inconvenient when trying to search back to find one email. That was a much easier way to zero in on one email. The ability to search only by date is unworkable.

  13. 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.

  17. AOL Email Incredibly Slow

    AOL email has been incredibly slow for several weeks. Have to wait a long time for it to respond to alphabetical letters typed, opening an email, moving, closing, deleting emails and all other activities. It has become unacceptable. Tried signing out, closing and reopening aol but nothing helps.

  18. I cant even scroll properly without these ads on the side interferring

    Either get rid of the ads, or find a way that they do not interrupt scrolling down. Its a nightmare. I dont pay you $10 a month for nothing.

  20. Now when I do a web search I get something from "History Hide" and it lists nothing that I am looking for. Help!

    Why when I do a search do i get "History Hide" and it doesn't give any options for what I am searching for?
