  2. Block without opening

    I would like to be able to block from receiving any e-mail at all from senders without having to open the e-mail address to see the sender's e-mail address. A right click on the e-mail should suffice like when I chose to delete an e-mail without opening it.

  3. put blocking mail in the headers

    block or perm delete email contact should be a button along with the delete move and read buttons. that way you dont have to go through half a dozen pages just to block someone. by the time i get there i forgot the name of the address i wanted to block.

  5. Wild cards (*) in email address filters no longer allowed

    Could wild cards in email address filters be allowed again. eg: Send *@anywhere.com to MyFolder. This used to work up until a few months ago.

  7. Delete individual advertisements that stay on the screen too long.

    Allow one to discontinue irrelevant individual advertisements. Often after a purchase had been made, or you just explored something you heard about, they advertise the products you have no interest in and it stays on your screen too long of a period. Often you already purchased or was just exploring the internet.

  9. Return to current position in Inbox after readi

    When I'm done reading an email and I return to the Inbox, it goes to the START (most recent) of the emails. When I'm going through my emails top-to-bottom and I'm several pages down the list, I then have to repeatedly scroll down to re-locate my place. I think it would make reading emails MUCH easier if you provided a "Back" button to return to the same place in the Inbox as the email that was just read. Thanks, Alan

  10. Adding profile picture setting for email receivers to know what the email sender looks like

    When people send an email it would be great for the receiver to see a picture of the person sending the email, just like the profile picture setting in Gmail. When an email receiever receives an aol email they see a blank photo representing the email senderl. Please look into fixing this issue to be more streamlined like your competitor email services

  12. Allow automatic forwarding of incoming messages without leaving of copy of the messages

    I would like to be able to choose to forward all my incoming messages to another email address and not keep a copy of those messages on the original server.

  14. Many providers allow text messages from cell phones to be received in an email account.I see avery long list of providers who allow sms meea

    Allow text messages from cell phones to be received in the email inbox.
    I see a long list of providers who allow "sms" messages to be sent to email accounts when searching for ways to get text messages through an email service., It's much faster and easier for the user.

  16. incoming notification for new emails need to include who it is from and not just the subjext line

    Not sure where this suggestion has gone however it does not appear to be here any longer...New Emails notifications that pop up on my iPhone or iPad show the RE line, 1st line of the body of the email and the date/time. It also shows FROM but it has MY info as this one I'm looking at is a reply to my email. NO WHERE does it show WHO is replying to my email. On new emails to me (not a reply) they don't show ANYTHING as to who it is FROM. PLEASE! include the FROM in the notifications on…

  17. Make email inbox more productive and guarantee that no folders that was created are not all of the sudden gone.

    aol mail should be more customizable making it more productive like the gmail where you can create labels for the inbox for important/urgent.

    That way one does not have to search through the mail to find a specific thing

    aol is being obselete for this reason,

  18. unroll.me

    I have loved tying this inbox to the Unroll.me website to create a daily digest for my sales related emails. Lately (since early September), your process disconnects this daily rather than letting my permissions last more than 24-36 hours. Please go back to what was working before, or at least work with their team to find a working solution so I don't change my subscriptions to another email account and stop using my aol mail.

  20. I had Hugh Grant's voice announcing my new emails "You have letters," but it was replaced by a female voice. Give me my Hugh Grant voice.

    Please re-establish my chosen announcer of receiving new emails- Hugh Grant's "You have letters." Someone disconnected it without my choice and now I don't have options listed to get back Grant announcement.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The customized “You’ve got mail” sounds are not enabled for the UK version of the AOL Mail, so they fall back to the default sounds. Our Product Team is now aware of this issue, and is currently working on a fix.

    Thank you.
