Spam icon not showing number of pieces in folder
I don't like the change to the spam folder which no longer shows how many pieces of mail are in the folder next to the icon like New Mail and Drafts. I use to just glance at this folder to see how many were in there now I have to open it up. I just figured this out and don't understand why you would make this change.
This has been a problem for over two months now. AOL, everyone wants to know if they have email in their spam folder. Put the number of spam messages back when we log into our email. Good companies don't take away features that are helpful.

I can open the spam folder and see the number of messages shown at the top.

AOL has a "support" e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org
Send your comments to that. They still will not respond, but it makes it harder for them to ignore it.

Might as well give up if you think AOL is going to respond to any complaints we make. I got upset when they took away the ability to click on the headers to sort in the old style email. Have to always switch to the unified type to manage all my emails.AOL mail in general has become irritatingly buggy in various areas.

I agree that the unread spam messages indicator should be reinstated!!
AJ BACH commented
I agree! Please put the # back next to the icon!
Very unhappy at this change, and lack of response to the issue being raised by customers
Peter Winstanley commented
Is anyone at AOL answering this Spam situation.
No counter ?
Plus now flooding the folder with most fraudulent and filth
When you reply to your salary payers please advise how to BULK block bulk permanent spam senders
TOM HILL commented
Has there been any response to this from AOL? Mine spam folder count just disappeared a couple months ago but is still very annoying not to be able and just glance at it and know if
I need to clean it out. Why would you take this feature away? Please fix for us. Thank you.

I also flag everyone of these messages and then delete them. What is going on? This is so frustrating and so awful to allow this to continue. I just read the comments below and now I know why I can't find the amount of spam messages because that is blocked by AOL if I understand this.
Flo Princiotta commented
i am getting close to two hundred spam messages a day! Along with disgusting spam on my website. I have tried to block but AOL is not allowing to add the names and block this nastiness. It also won't allow me to remove the date on my hold mail website but it keeps updating it on a daily basis.
RENATE SANDERS commented
I'm having the same issue and don't like it at all. Was this purposefully done? Is there going to be a solution?
Paula Denton commented
Agreed! Why did they change this? I liked checking it now and then because it would hold emails I needed that was deemed spam but wasn’t. Any way to correct this?
GEORGANN GARVER commented
My aol spam folder does not show on either my ipad or Mac Pro so I am unable to check it. Any ideas?
WILLIAM ROSENSTEEL commented
I agree 100% !!!!! Bring it back, very much needed !!!
ALEX MILLER commented
I have just missed another important email, which was diverted to my spam folder with no indication it was there. What a crazy idea this change is. Why did you do it? I am really angry.
Barbara Purchia commented
Totally agree that the unread spam messages indicator should be reinstated!!
DIANNE THIELMAN commented
AOL, please show the number of spam messages again!
Dianne Jaslow commented
I did not think I had any spam mail because there was not a number. When I finally opened the spam I saw that there were hundreds of them. I can't think of a reason to change placing the number of spam e-mails so people will know to delete them before it takes a long time to delete. And sometimes there is an e-mail that gets in spam that is important and needs to be read. Please rethink this and reinstate the number of spam e-mails which is a very important feature.

Same here. It took me 3-4 weeks to realize I hadn't received any Spam in a long time (or so I thought). I had accumulated about 4 screens worth, of which 8-10 messages were Not Spam.
I always kept my Spam folder clear, eliminating the chance of something getting misdirected there for very long. Now I have to remember to check (one more task to keep track of), and when I find nothing, it's wasted time. This is one of the features that makes AOL still worthwhile as compared to alternatives.
