    You can “filter” incoming mail in AOL Mail to make certain emails go directly into the folders where you want them — or, to make unwanted mail from specific senders go straight into Trash or Spam. Note: You can create up to 50 filters. Here’s how to set up Filters and Alerts: 1. In the upper-right corner next to your Username, click the down arrow, and then click Mail Settings. 2. In the left panel, click Filters and Alerts, and then click the Create filter button in the middle of the page. 3. The “Create Filter” window opens. Give your Filter (or Alert) a name, and fill in as much detail as you’d like. 4. Under “Look for incoming messages matching all of the following,” define the criteria for the filter. That is, the emails that the filter will capture. 5. Under “Do the following with matched messages,” click the Move to folder… drop-down arrow if you’d like to send these messages to a folder (you don’t have to do this; messages can just keep coming into your inbox), then check (or leave blank) a box beside the type of Alert you’d like to send yourself when these messages arrive. (You don’t have to select an Alert.) 6. Click Save. To learn more about your Mail Settings and Spam in this AOL Help article: https://help.aol.com/articles/aol-mail-spam-and-privacy

      What happened to the subject line spam filter? Spam comes from spoofed or hijacked email addresses, so blocking those addresses doesn't eliminate incessant spam emails for viagra, Keto diets, etc. etc.

      Allow us to permanently block email. I keep getting emails from xpress which is spam and it is going in the spam box but there are tons and tons from this person. I want to permanently block this person. How do I do that? I have searched for it and the AOL directions given do not work as when I go under options there is no 'spam' section. Very annoying and now I am getting more of the same nature from other senders. This is a big issue - I do not want one to accidentally open and infect my computer with a virus.
