I have the basic version of aol mail ( Free version) and used to be able to order my emails by From, subject , date etc.
However, now I am only able to order my emails by date and not any other column. Is this because I have the free version of AOL mail?
The Read, Unread and See All filters are no longer available. However, you can sort your emails by date, subject or sender if you switch to the Unified Inbox view.
If you’re unsure how to switch to this view, please refer to the following help article: https://help.aol.com/articles/how-do-i-switch-to-the-unified-inbox-view.

Previously we were able to click on the From bar and rearrange our list by sender. It does not do this anymore. It makes it quicker to delete unwanted emails rather than hunt & peck through the list.
Product Support's (Other- Product Support, AOL) response to Anonymous 'ordering emalis' Sep 5, 2018 post is so **** pathetic: "The Read, Unread and See All filters are no longer available."
Many of your users used to use these features. Now, they're "no longer available.
Why are these features no longer available?
BRING BACK THE SORT FUNCTION IN THE FROM (Sender) COLUMN!
we need the email status back were is it?
I read this post and switched to the Unified Inbox view as suggested. Problem is that it then displays all messages which have been deleted in the past going back to 2009 making deleting garbage next to impossible.
Organize by simular emails or repeated mails on free service would help reduce volumes
great aol has made my account so secure I can no longer sign on
I can't group the flagged emails.
Is there a way to sort my NEW emails by sender? I used to be able to about a year ago. Why can't I do this any longer?
LIKE, HOW DO YOU LET ALPHABETIZING FOR THE TRASH CAN AND SPAM
BUT NOT FOR NEW MAIL>!>!>!>!>!>
How can I put my e mails in A-Z order please?
Can you please allow the from in the inbox to be sorted like you can in the deleted. You use to be able to.
They don’t even recognize password or email
Group/ Sorting by choice. I would like to be able to group/sort my email by any column I choose at any time. At this time I can only sort by date. Being able to have the freedom to sort by any column (date, name or subject) at any time makes organizing my work that much faster and easier. -3/25/19
We ought to be able to display incoming emails by sender. We used to be able to. What happened?
The old mail feature allowed sorting email - Need to be able so I can keep grouped. I like to file all Credit cards in a folder and now I have to search for each one.
I basically don't use the email as much anymore because of the non-sorting feature
This new "old" and "new" email is so inconvenient. The former system worked just fine. A user had one place to look/search for a desired email.
Moreover, your removal of the "unread" bolding of the email as a reminder to go back to it is also inconvenient. Putting that little yellow flag beside an email makes it difficult to see when looking.
Sometime apparent innovations are not as helpful as the designer might think.

About a year ago I lost the ability to sort my INBOX on the FROM column. It takes me so much longer to go thru and delete my emails.
Please allow read mail marked "Keep as new" to return to the original black instead of grey.
Also, please can we go back to alphabetizing our mail. it was so much easier.

After 99 comments about this you CLOSED it but have not said what you are doing about it!
Within Sent emails you can SORT by the 'To' field. But no longer can you do the same in New or Old for the 'From' field. It was ages ago that it worked in all cases.
You, AOL, would also benefit from this because sorting, particularly in Old, would enable grouping and much easier/more housekeeping (ie deleting etc).
