People with AOL are being inundated with spam email. AOL has to do a better job blocking massive amounts of junk email.

Due to some stupid,asinine new rule at AOL that they don't want anyone using third party email software,I was forced to delete my Verizon email account and reinstall it with a password provided by AOL.That was yesterday and I've received about a dozen spam emails since then.It wasn't happening before and there's no excuse for it happening now,except that AOL is totally worthless.

SPAM e mail has increased significantly. This needs to stop.
Mike STEPHENS commented
I agree it need to be updated. I used to get very little SPAM and now it is 10 or 15 a day. Something changed. Change it back!

Same. I have the old Verizon email of which was transferred here to AOL. I have been working hard every day (Since Nov 30th) to clear the 1500+ junk/spam emails from my account. I've set up about 12 additional rules to help my system filter the inundation of AOL junk/spam emails.
PAUL CLERI commented
The amount of spam I've received in the last two weeks surpasses what I had received the last year. What is going on? (I also have a verizon.net email address)
Stoney Curtis commented
Same experience as others here. Also have old verizon.net accounts. Trying to motivation us to close our old accounts? Makes me wonder.
Jenee KAWEJSZA commented
The increase in SPAM is absolutely OUT OF CONTROL! I also have a verizon.net email. Are these the only ones being affected?
DOUGLAS SCHAEFER commented
Starting December 1st, 2021 when AOL made security changes to their e-mail platform, requiring encrypted connections to their servers, they also must have changed their spam provider because all users seem to be reporting an increase in spam making it to thier inbox starting on that date. My familiy all have verizon.net mailboxes and we all saw an increase in spam starting Dec 1. This is going to look bad for Verizon. Just return your spam filters to the way they were prior to Dec 1
PETER FRITCHMAN commented
Please give us the option control spam filter level instead of now wanting $10 a month to do what you used to do for free on my Verizon.net accounts. Did you guys just shut off the spam filter? What did you do? Maybe better to ask what you DIDN’T do.

I am getting bombed with spam e-mail the last 4-5 days with my aol verizon.net account
I am glad I am not alone looking at the other comments
I am going to change my e-mail address on accounts that were using the verizon.net accounts(not many) and dump this e-mail address
ANDREW MCCORMICK commented
Agree with everyone on this thread. The spam is getting out of hand and every day is worse, I've had my verizon.com address for over 20 years and it was never like this before. I don't want to change but I will if I have to to get rid of this problem.
LINDA HERRERA commented
I am having this issue as well! AOL, why are the spam filters not working??
Kim Wilder commented
The last month I am receiving multiple spam emails daily in my regular inbox. I almost never had an issue before.
John Street commented
Absolutely. And, what, did they suddenly turn off the spam filters? Starting couple of day ago I now get a ton of obvious spam. I was recently forced to stop using my third-party mail program and go straight here because of some supposed security concerns. Now I have to put up with this ****???
DAVID WILKINS commented
As of the last few days, a lot of spam is suddenly getting through the filter into my inbox. Senders that were previously blocked are now getting through.
RICKY BRAGG commented
Sudden barrage of scammer emails, some in foreign languages, most in different font from legit emails. Why? Gotta fix this. They are so obvious.
THOMAS GANNON commented
Same as others - recently more spam email is not getting caught by your filters. What has changed? Please revert any updates to restore the spam filtering to what it was a few weeks ago.
Pam Amaro commented
Why am I getting so much spam, 20 or more almost every day? I will be changing email service to gmail if this continues.
ANGELA SUGGS commented
Why am I suddenly getting so much spam email ? It's gone from 20-30 a day to 200-300 daily!!
Ian Haydock commented
Will not be on AOL much longer -USA junk mail is rising each day !!!
