Spam - I want the ability to block all domains coming from ".uk"
I noticed that most of the spam that I receive comes from domains ending in ".co.uk" or ".org.uk" and I would like the ability to block domains that have those endings that are not in my address book or listed as approved senders. Is there a way to restrict these domains? Also, I would like AOL to return the option to block emails containing specific words or phrases. I have a paid account and it is very important to me that I be able to have the ability to restrict the excessive spam emails and emails containing ****** content. If AOL determines these are spam emails, they should be blocked completely. I do not want to have to keep wasting my time sifting through hundreds of spam emails in my spam folder when looking for something that may have slipped thru.

Getting a lot of spam from this domain. 18.104.22.168. How can I block it or have AOL do it?

Blocking an entire email extension, such as "@hotdealls." Most spam emails are coming from the same extension. Hopefully blocking the entire extension is something that can be done.
There SHOULD be a way to COMPLETELY BLOCK chosen domains. So they do not even show up in the spam folder. I spend most of my "spam time" making sure to find valid emails before cleaning out the spam folder.
I get the bulk of spam from a handful of domains. I've never visited them. They continue to show up in my spam folder, and I am forced to sort thru them to ensure I am NOT deleting good valid emails. Please let us block some of those domains and have them not even show up in spam.

As many have stated previously in Feedback, add ability to block email Domains. This is pathetic to not have that built into AOL Mail like all other email tools.

Once a spam email has been deleted, it seems to make no difference, and I keep getting the same subject matter spamming me. Like phone calls, can we have a "Block" option please

Current options are limited when blocking emails. It is one at the time or all. Spam emails usually come from similar emails ie. Renter-info@... the after @ is the only thing that changes. I get many other spams just like this one. Go back to old DOS and be able to block using Renter-info@*.* the *.* would block anything after the suffix you put in.

Searching for domain blocking, it seems that it used to be available for AOL mail. It needs to be reinstated as a filter option.
An old adage was a saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". AOL seem to have had something that was.t broken, but have now broken it.
I do wish their customer support believed in excellence.

I'm with you Steven. I get a ton of emails everyday from junined.com and tried using a wild card like *@junined.com with zero success. Totally frustrating!

block sender button for spam
The bulk of my spam comes from a group of domains. Lately, I am getting way more spam than ever before. Blocking an entire domain before it even reaches my Spam folder would be AWESOME.

Being 75, I wish AOL would allow us to put in partial email addresses and AOL would throw out that partial email before it hits my spam box.
Ex: I get hundreds of emails that start with Admin@ that I never want to read beginning with that opening. These people must be buying these email addresses since the ending of those emails are all different.
Another one would be ANY e-mail address with ALL alphabet letters in the beginning.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN
I get a LOT of spam from several domains. I am NEVER going to want to even read any of it. Please, let me block the whole domain. like "ordings.com" for instance.

alow a domain without the @.....to be blocked completely. Not just filtered(which does not work)

There is a ingenious spammer that continues to change the domain name when spam is sent out. That IP address is 22.214.171.124. It would be great if this IP would be blocked at the firewall, or allow to use that address is our options to block *@126.96.36.199. The '*' would catch all the admin,support,etc names

I have been inundated with political spam. Recently, I blocked 30 such emails that showed up in my spam folder or my inbox.
Now I get inundated with spam of the type contact@*** and cannot set up filters or add the address to be blocked since they change every time.
Please restore the wildcard features.
