  1. Here's a mine waiting to be stepped on...

    Don't do what I just did! I was nearing the end of a detailed email I composed, when I went to another site to copy something I needed to paste. When I back-arrowed to Compose, everything I had written was gone and unretrievable. This AOL non-solution has been around for two decades. Isn't that long enough to fix glaringly poor programming. I was forced to switch from Verizon-hosted email to this train wreck. I suspect that Verizon or Oath broke it when they began leveraging it for Ad and profiling revenue. Email used to be a simple and essential tool.…

  2. You can improve AOL mail by putting back the when read feature. It is a pain not having it.

  3. Allow scheduled sending of emails

    Why can't we compose an email and schedule when we want that email sent? That is a very useful feature when you are for example, catching up on many things over a weekend and sending business emails you want delivered Monday morning so they are hopefully not lost in the email abyss on the other end over the weekend.
    There are also times when you think of something needed but know it should really go later so you write an email as you think of it. but want it sent at the appropriate time.

  6. Allow 3rd party email clients

    You won't allow sending from Thunderbird or Apple Mail. The reason is security. It's obvious you want us to read ads or track us or something to do with your bottom line.

    If security were the true reason, then everyone would disallow 3rd party email clients from sending email.

    If you don't allow 3rd party email to handle my account, I will close it and say goodbye to AOL altogether.

    I never chose to sign up with AOL; verizon was taken over by AOL, and I wanted to try to keep that account, but it is no longer practical, unless…

  11. Separate SEND from SAVE please

    please separate the SEND from the SAVE -- it is too easy to accidentally hit SEND instead of SAVE... so annoying.

  13. HAVE A FEATURE TO SCHEDULE A DATE AND TIME FOR MAIL TO BE SENT

    instead of just clicking on to send later, actually have a feature where we can set date and time to be sent and when that date and time comes, the mail is sent automatically

  14. E-mails

    The new method for attaching addresses is not an improvement. One must now scroll the through all addresses alphabetically to locate an addressee. If the person's last name begins with a "W", you need to scroll through all addressees "A through V" to get to the "W's". You used to be able to highlight the "W" and then scroll to find your desired addressee. Much easier!

  16. disable auto send

    It would be great if the automatic send feature (Ctrl+Enter) could be disabled. Just sent something by mistake while typing the email.

  17. Stop the "Control-Enter" method of sending email.

    I'm very tired of having my reply sent before I'm ready because I hit "control-enter" by mistake while typing. I would very much like this characteristic of the system to go away, or at least have the option to disable it. Mousing over to the "send" button would be my only preferred way to send a message.

  19. Forwarding Several from My Inbox

    I would like to forward several e-mails at one time from my Inbox to a work e-mail address. Currently, I can only forward one at a time, but with 60 e-mails a day in my AOL Inbox, this gets very tedious. I could understand a reasonable limit on the most that can be forwarded at one instance, but a limit of 'one' is not reasonable.
