  1. We need sub folders inside any folder.

    We need sub folders inside any folder. It does not make sense to create a new folder any time without the chance to group them!

    • We need the sub folder and move feature.

      The sub folder feature isn't available online nor the move feature. Please add this feature for AOL is the only one that doesn't have it.

        • Grouping folders

          Change it back to the way it was brfore; where a customer can have folders and sub folders within the folder. By separating all of your folders individually in makes it very difficult to organize

              • Remove checkbox for "All" Inbox

                Several times, I've accidentally clicked the box above the inbox and deleted everything in my inbox. I've caught it and was able to move it back, but what if I do the same in the trash box and actually delete it!?! REMOVE that check box!

                • trash is broken. It is not possible to delete all email messages. The top icons and the right click icons do not work.

                  You have a major bug. Trash icons are broken.
                  Right click on the left column Trash icon does not have working empty link,
                  Top delete all icons are also grayed out and not working in trash.

                    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The engineering team is currently looking into the issue where the ‘Empty’ option (when right-clicking on the Trash folder) shows grayed out.

                    As a workaround, you can open the Trash folder, select the messages you want to permanently delete, by selecting the check box in-front of each email (or select the top check box to mark all the emails), then clicking on the ‘Delete’ button above the message list.

                    In case you do not see the ‘Delete’ button after selecting the messages, go to Options – Customize – and check ‘Show Button Labels’.

                    • Bug: Sorted folder loses sort when all marked and set to read.

                      To have a stable working set, i move all my incoming mail toa "Sorting" folder. Today it was set to sort by From. I clicked to check all and then set them all to 'read'. I lost my 'From' sort, had to click the header twice to regain the sort.

                      • fix the order you throw things out

                        you don't throw trash away in a barrel by sticking it down the bottom of the can by the date you received it from the store...so why don't you sort the mail we discard in the order we discard it!

                            • archive email

                              There should be a better way to either delete or archive emails in order to clean up very large email inboxes
                              1. Create delete from date---> to date ranges
                              2. Create Archive folders, similar to Outlook

                              • Could you make it 2 clicks to delete mail & picture files to prevent accidental deletions

                                I once accidentally deleted all my mail files with a wrong click which thankfully AOL retrieved for me. But since then I have noticed to delete my spam files it takes 2 clicks & I am asked if I really want to delete them but it only takes 1 click to delete my regular mail & files. Could the 2 click & verification be added to those files as well ???
