  1. Offer a right-click menu option to restrict spam addresses.

    Give the option to restrict spam addresses or entire domains with a right-click menu option on a spam e-mail, rather than having to jump through hoops to individually add each one to the restricted list.

  2. AOL FOR CRYING OUT LOUD DO NOT CONTROL MY SETTINGS BY PRE-CHECKING THE "STAY SIGNED IN" BOX WHEN I AM SIGNING IN. KNOCK IT OFF ALREADY!

    DO NOT CONTROL MY PRIVACY BY PRE-CHECKING THE "STAY SIGNED IN" BUTTON WHEN I WANT TO CHECK MY EMAIL. IF I WANTED TO STAY SIGNED IN, I WOULD CHECK THE BOX -- DO NOT EVER DO THAT "FOR" ME. E-V-E-R

  3. Block Email Address Button for Each Email

    It may have been said before but I would like to reiterate the ability to have a block email option on the mail page. It is not practical or time efficient to copy and paste SPAM email addresses (30+ daily) to the block email section. Just as there is a SPAM option for emails, then PLEASE install a BLOCK email address option. This would probably solve a significant amount of your spam complaints.

    Stop running 'unseen' ads in the background in the email. It slows my computer down to a near stop in the email. The message comes up 'This web page is using significant energy, etc. I finally clicked 'control' on that warning, and up comes an entire ad.

  6. Allow Users Responsibility For Their Account Passwords

    I am sick of your system not allowing users to set my password to what they want by giving notices saying "Your new password is too similar to your previous password" or other such messages. I understand that you do this for security, but as the account owner I want to set my password to what I want and so long as I have not been hacked my password is still safe no matter what it is even if it was the exact same as the previous password. STOP MAKING THINGS MORE DIFFICULT FOR USERS BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE…

  8. AOL bias should stop

    You wear your anti-Trump bias on your sleeve and it is pathetic. AOL is supposed to be for America, and your posture is destructive and politically motivated. I hate to open AOL each day and read your bias spin. Please stop, especially during this time in our country when you serve no good tearing us down. You obviously did not get the memo that "we are in this together" - you'd rather play politics and sow discord.

  10. Way too much spam and a friending option is needed.

    AOL should provide an automatic block and delete spam emails feature instead of letting them get to the spam folder, especially if the sender is not friended. If there was a friending request feature that would let the recipient know that someone wants to friend them that would be different, then the recipient could accept or decline. That is an option that would be useful.

  11. SPAM Filter ??

    Your spam filter regularly moves messages from my kid's high school list serv into the spam folder. I had to turn the filter off, so I wouldn't miss any important e-mail, now the messages get filtered out again. What is going on!!
    And add to the list of blocked mail entire domains, not just individual addresses. Actually you should allow for a list to be imported.

    By continually using the Not Spam button, you are training your spam filter and our systems to recognize important emails. Additionally, if you are using an email application, like Outlook, Mac Mail, Windows Mail, or the mail app on your mobile device, please check the incoming mail filters in the application’s settings, and change the filters, so that all new emails are kept in the Inbox.

    In order to block incoming emails from an entire domain, go to mail.aol.com – Options – Mail Settings – Spam Settings – and add the domain name (e.g. @example.com) inside the “Block Mail From Addresses I Specify” field, click the plus button, then Save Settings.

  12. Not happy about having to click twice to delete a SPAM email

    Not happy about having to click twice to delete a SPAM email. Please fix this.....it takes twice as long to clean up the SPAM folder. Very aggravating....time is important.

  13. Keep it the way it was.

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

  14. We need sub folders inside any folder.

    We need sub folders inside any folder. It does not make sense to create a new folder any time without the chance to group them!

  15. news

    The journalists at AOL must think we are all stupid. The news stories that you post on the front page of AOL are nothing less than insulting the intelligence of readers. I agree with the comment made by another AOL user - "Your news is NOT worth reading...pathetic." SOOOO TRUE!!! Now I am to the point where I just ignore anything on the front page of AOL because it is like opening the pages of the National Enquirer. Really???

  18. Block without opening

    I would like to be able to block from receiving any e-mail at all from senders without having to open the e-mail address to see the sender's e-mail address. A right click on the e-mail should suffice like when I chose to delete an e-mail without opening it.

  19. Allow settings customization

    If the Customize option is greyed out when the Settings window is open, and you have to open the Settings window to see the Customize option, how are we supposed to be able to click on it?
