  1. AOL deleted all emails from my inbox.

    AOL deleted all emails from my inbox. Lost important emails like flight confirmations and payment receipts. Should I switch to a different email provider?

  2. make blocked mail just go into the trash instead of the spam folder !

    Why does blocked mail go to the spam folder and not the trash folder.. pretty stupid if You ask me...if one blocks it or uses phishing It should either not even show up or it should go to the trash folder. I have to delete the same emails from the same source every day... frustrating.

  3. move to:

    When moving email from Inbox to a Folder you have to scroll down the alphabetical "Move to" list to find the Folder you want. If there is a long list then it takes time to find it. Or you can guess on the scroll bar to get close but you still have to do some unnecessary scrolling. It would be cool if there were alphabetical Rolodex tabs next to the Folder list to get you close.

  4. length of from field in spam folder

    For some reason, all the folders, including inbox, trash, draft, and any custom folders, automatically adjust the "from" field to the length of the longest addressee's name, but spam folder does not, it has a standard (short) length and truncates all the addressees to that length. So everytime I go to the spam folder to review the spam emails, I have to manually adjust the "from" field length so I can see all the addressees in their entirety. Can you please in a future update change the folder opening routine for the spam folder to work the same way as…

  5. I want to have multiple levels of folders.

    I want to have multiple levels of folders. I want to have an Old E-Mail Folder and have it contain a 2020 E-mail folder, and a 2019 E-mail Folder etc.. AOL can not manage mutiple levels of folders.
    I also tried it with some smaller folders and it is not the folder size that matters.

  14. Improve the functionality of managing folders: deleting ones no longer needed; adding new folders, and editing titles.

    My folders say that I have 896 folders which is grossly overstated. Where is that number coming from. Additionally, I have emptied a number of folders, however, for the past few weeks, I cant locate an option that allows me to delete any folders. I also no longer have the option to add any new folders. Up until the past several weeks, I have been able to add, delete and edit folders. Why is this problems showing up and how do I resolve it, so I can continue to manage my emails efficiently? Thanks

  15. Mail Message SIZE

    I would like to be able to quickly locate large bloated emails (size) so that I can delete them to reduce my space usage. Could you please add a size field column to view and sort by in the email list window.

  16. Disabling links in spam is counter-productive

    I get that you don't want people accidentally clicking to malicious sites, but part of how I determine if a message is spam or legit is to hover over the links and see if what pops up matches the text I'm hovering over. I can't do that if you're "disabling" all the links. I end up having to mark it as "not spam" in order to figure out if it is spam. Does that make sense?

  17. Lost transfers to a chosen folder

    Frequently when I wish to save an email to chosen folder, I get msg that the email has been moved, BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN MOVED... BUT APPEARS IN THE TRASH FOLDER !! Sometimes a save results in the email removal from the list (good action), while most of the time it REMAINS IN THE LIST!! Leads to a doubted action, low confidence in system software!!!

  19. Add a search box to the "Move to:" menu choice.

    Add a search box to the "Move to:" menu choice. I have probably got over 300 personalized folders, so when I want to move a piece of mail from my inbox to a folder, right now I have to click the "More" menu choice, then I have to scroll down this lengthy list of folders, then click the folder I want to move it to. This all takes time and, at least 50% of the time, I get booted out of my list of folders before I ever get to the folder I want to move the item to. This…
