  1. 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.

  2. Blocking e-mail addresses

    Not happy that only 1000 addresses can be blocked. Can you not expand that?

  4. Listen up everyone!

    AOL cares nothing about their customers! They don't care what you think. It's for their convenience in making it easier for themselves in not adding the spam features for us. This also puts more money into their pockets. They are more concern in putting in more ads on your webmail page, than making it easier for you!! The best thing to do is to close your AOL account and go somewhere else. If everyone closed their accounts, we'd see how fast they'd move to put in those block features for spamming, back. AOL sucks BIG time!!

  6. Changes to 'Today on AOL' news feed

    When I open a news item on Today in AOL it changes to a page that does not allow me to open any photos and has awful music playing or someone talking about a totally different subject than the news I want to read.
    I hate the new changes. If there is no way to change this I'm off to Yahoo.
    After 23 years of being a faithful AOL customer maybe it's time to move on!!!!

  7. Annoying CNN "news flashes"

    Find a way for your staff to not force their news predilections on my desk top. I find the CNN "news flashes" jumping in leftwards from the right side of the screen to be annoying, insulting and bullying. Can such news (real, fake or other) be delivered only by request or permission received?

  8. put blocking mail in the headers

    block or perm delete email contact should be a button along with the delete move and read buttons. that way you dont have to go through half a dozen pages just to block someone. by the time i get there i forgot the name of the address i wanted to block.

  11. Searching mails.

    Allow the user to select the file they would like to search. I do not always want to search through deleted files. The default to ALL files produces too much junk. The options should be for the user to select new, old, sent or deleted mail. Not all by default.

  12. Downloading Saved Mail?

    You use to let people save the old mail to our systems if we liked. I would like to save my old mail to my system and not have to get on yours system every time I am looking for some thing in my old mail and use up the space that you give me for old mail on your system.

  14. Wild cards (*) in email address filters no longer allowed

    Could wild cards in email address filters be allowed again. eg: Send *@anywhere.com to MyFolder. This used to work up until a few months ago.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback, we’ll send it over to the Product Team and hope to have it implemented in the future.

  15. Add additional options for Fonts that we can choose from

    I believe all of us that uses webmail only has up to 9 Fonts to choose from. I would like to request if this can be increased so that we can have more options to choose.

  16. Advertisements

    You are allowing advertisements from . This is a scam company. You do not receive the same clothing as advertised. You receive from an address in Chino, Ca. When you want to return the item for a refund, the Company tells you that you have to send it to China at your own expense - which by the way is over $100.00 in shipping costs. Stop showing their advertisements .

  17. Allow movement of unwanted sender addresses to the"Block" area with one key stroke?

    Your new systems stinks. Please let us have the possibility to move unwanted senders' addresses to the "Block" area with one key stroke. I am not sitting here for the next 4 hours moving 35 of 39 ******/pornographic address one by one - especially if some of the addresses are more than 25 characters long!

  19. 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.…
