  2. Why do I suddenly have a limit for the number of people I can have on one of my contact lists?

    I need help: I tried to change the email address for a contact on one of my lists, which has 165 names on it. I deleted the original email, but when I tried to add the new address, I got this message: "Too many email addresses for a distribution list." This is seriously interfering with my work.

  3. Delete individual advertisements that stay on the screen too long.

    Allow one to discontinue irrelevant individual advertisements. Often after a purchase had been made, or you just explored something you heard about, they advertise the products you have no interest in and it stays on your screen too long of a period. Often you already purchased or was just exploring the internet.

  6. Auto Save Attachments

    Give the option to open or save attachments.. I hate that your webmail auto downloads attachments to my devices!! That should be my choice. It should open in either the reading pane of the email, or another window on the browser. NOT TO MY COMPUTER STORAGE. I have to use the email for work and it is truly a pain and inconvenience to have to download all of the attachments and then search for them and delete them!

  7. 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. deleted mail

    There should be a setting that when you close the email a dialog box comes up to ask if you want to permanently delete deleted mail. This will keep the folder empty. I forget to enpty the deleted and it gets a lot in it.

  9. Forwarding Several from My Inbox

    I would like to forward several e-mails at one time from my Inbox to a work e-mail address. Currently, I can only forward one at a time, but with 60 e-mails a day in my AOL Inbox, this gets very tedious. I could understand a reasonable limit on the most that can be forwarded at one instance, but a limit of 'one' is not reasonable.

  11. Sweep function

    Please add a sweep function to allow all emails from a selected sender to be deleted with a single click. This feature is available in Outlook and some other email providers, and is very useful for de-cluttering an inbox.

  12. 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.

  15. Every single time I come over here I have to change from the standard to basic setting. Isn't there a way for you to save my preference?

    It is MUCH easier to maneuver in the inbox in the basic/accessible setting than in the standard setting. Every single time I come to the inbox I change it to the basic/accessible setting and yet every single time you change it back. Isn't there something that can be done to save my preferences? This is getting real old real fast.

  16. savings email attachments

    Need an easy way to save attachments without having to download, open preview, then save to designated folder. MacMail allows a one-step 'save' click to accomplish this when viewing the email

  18. I do not like the faint lettering on my favorites bar. The words used to be easier to read because they were black instead of gray.

    Improve the lettering and readability of the saved sites on my bookmarks bar. The letters look gray instead of black. Too difficult to read now.

  19. By NOT having us hit an "ok" on an email we delete! Its' a waste of time!!

    Every time I delete an email I don't want, a square shaped "pop up" comes on the monitor and has "cancel" and "ok"! When I delete something, I delete it; I don't want to have to keep hitting an "ok" on an unnecessary pop-up! It's time consuming and irritating at the same time. Can we please stop getting those??
