  1. When I did a search of a set of targeted emails for delete, the delete function deleted my emails in my IN BOX and not the targeted list.

    Your AOL anywhere has a bug. Yesterday when I was trying to clean up my mails. I used a search of "HISTORY" to clear out a group of emails. I pulled out 900+ emails. I don't know why so many but realized that some emails were not meant to be deleted. So I went through the entire list of 900+ and uncheck all the ones I didnot want to delete before I deleted the emails. I usually then go to RECENTLY DELETED folder and permanently deleted some so when I do search again, it will not show up. The reason…

  2. How do mass download all mail in a folder

    With AOL now deactivating accounts not used for a period of time, it's imperative that we have an option to MASS DOWNLOAD all saved mail in ALL folders we've created. Even if they weren't deactivating accounts not used for long, there still MUST BE an OPTION ADDED to MASS DOWNLOAD every piece of mail INCLUDING ATTACHMENTS TO THE MAIL, without having to open 100's, if not 1000's pieces of mail and downloading them, and their attachments 1 at a time. This is an imperative option. THIS FEATURE MUST BE ADDED ASAP - and if there's a way to do it,…

  3. Need to be able to edit or delete default Archive folder

    The default Archive folder in AOL mail cannot be edited or deleted. Users need to be able to better customize this folder for personal use. Especially helpful would be 1) the ability to change its name, 2) moving entire folders into it for tabbed or layered archiving, and 3) deleting it entirely if desired.

  4. 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!

  8. 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.

  12. 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

  15. 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

  17. fix email Sent folder to default to sender name. Like before. Now shows email address

    Some AOL email Server upgrade a few days ago broke a couple of things. Currently, my Sent folder changed from my settings to show by names, to showing email address only. All other folders show by contact names or sender name.

  18. 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…

  19. 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!
