I cannot find any help for the issue of "Today on AOL" which has been missing from my Mail page for weeks. Should be a place to contact someone even if you don't pay for AOL

It would be nice to go to my email without having to look at a page full of news first. Especially when the news headlines are clearly slanted with a liberal left agenda.
JAMES SURABIAN commented
Despite going through the required actions on settings, I cannot go straight to my inbox when I set it that way. It always goes to your My AOL news when I try to check my emails. Then I have to click on the letter symbol to get to my emails. I'm not interested in your liberal news interpretations, I just want my emails.
BENJAMIN SUNNESS commented
Just mail. No news or opinion.
DANIEL PATTERSON commented
I no longer want to see all your biased liberal news every time I am trying to log in to read my email. How do I block?
CHIKAE SATOH commented
Please stop showing useless liberal news on the home page when I log in.
RICHARD GREEN commented
I don't want to see your "today page". How can I circumvent that?
Pamela Sebastian commented
I very much dislike the "update" to aol and wish you would go back to the way it was -- but I and others have already said that many, many times. Just do it!
Pamela Sebastian commented
1. When I click on the AOL icon, I want to be shown my email, NOT your "news items.
2. When I click on a link within an email and then want to go back to the email, ensure that the "back" button takes me back to the email, not somewhere else (like "news").
3. Please get rid of the circles with initials or logos to the left of an email listing. The old list had boxes one could check to be deleted, archived, etc. You can still do that, but it is much harder to see which ones you have checked.
4. Why the bold type in email listings? It takes too much room and less of the list is visible.

I want to unsubscribe from "Today on AOL". I pay for email each month and that is all I want.
RICKEY GILLILAND commented
Don't force users to open your biased home page and have to navigate from there when ALL they want to do is view their email. AOL has NEVER been this bad. Fix your broken links.
No idea here just please I am not interested in news when I check my mail. How can I just get rid of it and go ONLY TO MAIL?

This is one of the most obnoxious nuisances I deal with every day. This is essentially a Trojan Horse. Clicking on any 'news' item provides no useful information, but it does unleash a torrent of ads. Your designers have made no allowance for older, more educated people, whose interests don't include the Royal Family, celebrities known only to people who watch the least thought-provoking media and who somehow still believe that selfies are a legitimate creative outlet.
Until parent company Verizon unleashed AOL on me as its new email host, things were much easier to accomplish, and I didn't have to put up with force-fed, pubescent, ad-plagued, sub-tabloid mentality content, I've already asked you several times, how do I permanently remove this awful time-waster?
Please stop the huge pictures "From the Web" when I view AOL Today.
I pay for a service and AOL creates a home page that I have no interest in and can't find a way to delete or change to something of interest.
MICHELLE KISTNER commented
Would like my log in page to go to a particular topic.
Entertainment, sports, etc.
Do not want to see POTUS when I open my page!!!!
This option was available years ago when AOL was a paid service to those needing a dial up account.
eliminate your politics from the home page or give us to option to shut off...
Log in; click on mail; get there. No other steps, no other ads; no news with Trump's face splashed all over the screen.
Allow me to choose what shows up when I open my account.

I despise him but even if I supported him it would be ridiculous to start every day with another picture of his face. If you have to promote "news", at least make it new!
