  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!

  2. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. Deleting Folders

    Your directions for deleting folders will not work when the left panel is minimized. After driving myself crazy, I stumbled on how to get it to work by accident. PLEASE add this to your help topic on how to delete mail folders:

    The direction that is missing is that you must drag the left panel open all the way in order to get the gear and the option to right click and delete. Click on the line that separates the left panel from the rest of the email screen. Drag it a couple inches to the right, and the gear…

  7. improvment inbox

    Recommendation: allow the user to see in their inbox a summary of all different senders of emails; then a user could pick senders to delete all of those emails without having to delete individual emails. Please note---spam filter is not a solution as I may want to still see some emails from those senders. Real life example: I recently shopped and bought a new vehicle, and bought other products which i may buy again, but not for a while. Since I reached out to many retailers and new car dealerships, I now receive boatloads of offers. I don't want to…

  9. 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.

  12. Create "move to" folder algorithm for move "after" or "if older than" date

    I have a massive inbox. I would like to move bulk mail into "year" folders. If I could at least indicate all of like "2017" emails to a folder I could reduce the inbox to maybe 4 back months of emails, and have yearly saved folders.

  13. Allow users to delete multiple email folders at once.

    I have tons of empty folders. I am forced to delete them one at a time. I need to be able to select multiple folders at once for deletion.

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  18. 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 ???
