Similar to Block email, please create Alert email setup page to redirect new emails into a temp , junk or user created folder name.
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

AOL needs a way to stop the **** emails. They change their email address slightly to get around the block
Derek Gates commented
Please enable us to block ALL e-mails from a particular source.
I desperately want to block @prodigy.
Stephen Lloyd commented
Is there a way I can block these spam e mails that are not from AOL?
Nancy Newman commented
My Spam folder often contains e-mails that I should receive. Several senders appear in the Aol spam folder that usually go directly to my in-box and I don't receive them as I typically would. Please check the screening protocol that sorts e-mails into my spam folder.
Please filter out adult / **** spam from my account. Tried blocking those as per your blocking instructions but they keep coming in as spam. Kids using this acct. and dont need them seeing this stuff. How About putting a blocking check box by them as well as the delete check box. Thanks. Like yahoo has gives a choice to delete, block & block similiar spam. Tnx
One should be able to copy/past the offending email address of a spammer rather than having to retype it. AND, there is one email address that even if I delete it, remains. How does one get rid of a "bad" spam address?

You did a real disservice to those of us that had spam/filters to prevent filthy, ****** emails from coming through. I am trying to eliminate what comes in but it is endless. Thank you AOL for nothing!
Spam is getting so annoying. Why don't we have the "Filter Words" option any more ?? If I copy and paste an e-mail address into my spam filter, I still keep getting e-mails from the same senders and it's so annoying. I have been using AOL since 2004, and I am seriously considering changing my e-mail address and using a different provider. Sort this out AOL !!
Please, I need help. I have a customer who had a domain hosted by AOL. They are a government contractor and for various reasons have both changed employers (but still doing the same tasks) and been bought, sold and transferred multiple times in the last few years. Bottom line is that the account AOL was hosting for them no longer exists--they all have new E-Mail addresses, because they have a new company and name.
But. They set up a recurring appointment several years ago. Somehow that appointment, or at least my notification of such, was resurrected about a year ago, possibly part of a restore from backups at AOL. So every week I keep getting a meeting notice for a meeting which no longer occurs, from a person who no longer has that account. I cannot E-Mail them at that account, nor can they delete this reminder. It is just hanging out there in "the cloud" inaccessible to anyone, as far as I can tell.
I've contacted AOL before and they said contact the sender. I've done that multiple times, but since they haven't owned the account for probably five years, they tell me they can't do anything about it. They suggested it might be in my computer, but I haven't found it there, and it is a physical E-Mail that I receive on multiple devices every week.
Please look into this and cancel it. It's getting old. I can supply a copy of it if you wish.
Here is a copy of the start of the notes that identifies its source:
-----Original Appointment----- From: Barrett, Richard J - Exelis [mailto:Richard.Barrett@exelisinc.com] Sent: Wednesday, July 01, 2015 8:05 AM

Stop allowing messages sent to "****************" from appearing in my emails!
make it easier for us to stop abusive emails. I have this one BIT-- that sends me 2 pages of religious stuff everyday and it needs to stop
Please create a filter that will allow us to chose not to receive emails in foreign languages or send them directly to spam folder.
My feedback is why am I getting a INSANE amount of spam, both in my spam box and my incoming box? Between 12:00 noon today and 4:00 PM if received over 100 spams, sometimes it is over 170.
how do I stop someone from emailing me
James Teeter commented
If you can't do "*" wildcard for SPAM address filtering for, how about allowing the single character wildcard "?" ?
All of a sudden my inbox is getting more than 30 spam emails a day, thanks to whatever laxity you have recently instituted at AOL. They all use different sender addresses, and so adding an address to my "Block mail from addresses I specify" box is not only time-consuming, it's futile. It is no longer worthwhile to have an AOL email address.

Then while looking for a new Email address, don't look to Yahoo....They have the same thing as AOL.
