  1. Adding profile picture setting for email receivers to know what the email sender looks like

    When people send an email it would be great for the receiver to see a picture of the person sending the email, just like the profile picture setting in Gmail. When an email receiever receives an aol email they see a blank photo representing the email senderl. Please look into fixing this issue to be more streamlined like your competitor email services

  2. I really love this email, AOL. I've used it since high school and am now in graduate school. It is very easy to use.

    I really enjoy being able to change the theme of my email. It allows me to express how I'm feeling or my mood for that moment in time.

  3. Listening to your subscribers

    You only annoy people if you run controversial ads, like those for Planned Parenthood, that people find morally offensive

  7. The flag next to the selection box

    The placement of the important flag next to the selection box is in a bad place. When you try to delete several emails at once that may be advertisements that you choose not to view, you accidentally hit the flag because of its placement and loose the selections you have made to delete. Put the important flag in a different area. This is annoying.

  8. Option to use regular AOL webmail on tablets

    Why can’t I use regular AOL webmail on my tablet? When I logged on to my AOL e-mail for the first time, I was forced to use AOL Mail for tablets and I HATE it! I specifically don’t use any e-mail clients on my iPad because the interfaces and capabilities are awful, nothing like using regular webmail or full-featured desktop e-mail client.

    You’ve got all the necessities available in the tablet interface, why can’t I just use it like using regular AOL webmail on my laptop? It’s all just whatever internet computer languages are used (HTML, PHP, Java, etc.), so…

  9. I HATE being forced into using red fonts from links, not being allowed to change the color. GET RID OF THEM!

    I think AOL should not be dictating the color of links I choose to embed in my email in RED FONT. UGLY! I can't stand them.

    The color RED should not be written in stone. We need to be able to change the color. RED is not always palatable, and I, for one, have trouble viewing the color red. It's ******* my eyes. I can't even change the color to a dull red!

    Fix it, please!

  10. Blinking words within emails

    It would be great if there was a way to not only highlight words in an email, but to have them 'blinking' as well.

  14. I can honestly say that your browser/interface for email is one of the worst I have ever seen

    I have persevered with the interface since the conversion from Verizon and I must say it has not gotten any better. You would think there would be some improvement or at lease up to the standards of the current century.
    Let's go people. Do something even if its wrong.

  15. Updating Account Information

    Lately AOL has been asking me to update my contact information by adding additional phone numbers, email addresses, etc. You seem only to accept mobile numbers, but you don't say so. When I add my landline number, you assume it is a mobile. Then I just have to remove it. This happens on several accounts.

  17. Please CARE about AOL member wants & restore EMAIL ALERTS sending text notifications when certain sender mail was received --

    Not everyone lives online.

    If AOL wants to keep members & give value, stop pushing unasked for products and services and please deliver those functions and features this long-time member actually relied upon & utilized frequently.

    Really tired of indifferent AOL customer service.

    I am PAYING for this ACCOUNT, but AOL delivers incredibly poor customer interaction, and trying to gain assistance, even when the source is AOL technical difficulties, is just infuriating. With every issue and contact, I get closer to leaving AOL. . .

    What is WRONG WITH THIS COMPANY that they cannot listen -- or grasp that they…

  18. sucks

    your new interfaces suck. instead of having any kind of "classic" email i have the option between "standard" which is bar none the worst email setup i have ever seen (seriously who opens emails as popups ant what were you thinking when you designed the UI) or a "Basic/accessible" which is neither its like you tried to give your "standard" interface an older look without knowing how email has worked for the last 25 years. this new oath group so far looks to be horrid. how can you be this large of a company and not know how email is…

  19. Create "move to" folder algorithm for move "after" or "if older than" date

    I have a massive inbox. I would like to move bulk mail into "year" folders. If I could at least indicate all of like "2017" emails to a folder I could reduce the inbox to maybe 4 back months of emails, and have yearly saved folders.

  20. Remove checkbox for "All" Inbox

    Several times, I've accidentally clicked the box above the inbox and deleted everything in my inbox. I've caught it and was able to move it back, but what if I do the same in the trash box and actually delete it!?! REMOVE that check box!
