  1. Improve customer service, it's appalling

    Called for assistance to reset email password last week. A couple days later learned I could receive, but not send emails using my iPhone, my primary method for communicating. I called for support and was told that for help I must pay for a monthly support service, but could use the online help. Tried the online help, it was of no help. I will be letting everyone I talk to know to choose any provider accept aol. I wish Verizon Fios had never sold this to aol. It's wrong that I can get help to change a password for free,…

    If you’re using AOL app, you can mark as spam the desired emails by selecting them and checking the box before the email then press the last icon to mark it as spam.

    If you’re using built in app from iOS, make sure to select the email and then click on the flag icon to mark them as spam.

    In most cases this problem is caused by the use of a VPN (virtual private network). A VPN will hide your real location, and for security reasons AOL will ask you to verify your login.

  11. Why are the left side columns COLLAPSED?

    The left hand side used to have words rather than syupid symbols describing the various items in email.
    STOP changing things because every time you DO that,. it gets screwed up.
    STICK WITH WHAT WORKS and is more user-friendly.

    Resize panels:

    1. Hover over the line separating the panels.
    2. Click on the arrow that appears.
    3. Drag the arrow so the panel is the size you’d like.

    Thank you for reaching out. That is your email alias, which was automatically setup when your Verizon email account was created. The alias does not change your user name and does not create a new mailbox, it becomes the mailing name associated with your primary account and is immediately ready to use in order to send and receive email on. Unfortunately the email alias cannot be deleted from a Verizon account. Please let us know if you have other questions or concerns. Thank you.

    Once the password is changed apps that are connecting through IMAP/POP will no longer be able to login, unless you have an application password setup through the Two Step Verification.

    First check if you have the Two Step Verification enabled, by going to: login.aol.com/account/security
    If the Two Step Verification is enabled, click on the application password, and delete all of them, in order to create new application passwords for your email apps.

    In case the Two Step verification is disabled, you can go to the Recent Activity link below, and remove access to apps, from the Apps connected to your account section.

  15. Settings needs another option

    Title: Give me an option to Stop putting names in front of every email I sent. Only want email address showing. Stop auto saving every address I type, some have typos and they are saved anyway, thus if you auto show an email address with a typo and I don't catch, it is a failure. Give me option to Stop auto save email and not provide name. I don't like your new AOL. I have been on your tech support for 1 hour just now and no way for Help Support to do this they say. AOL must give me…

    If you do not want to have a display name when sending emails please go to Options> Mail Settings> Compose> Display name. Here you can delete the name that appears instead of your email address. On the same page down below at Sending, uncheck “Automatically add email addresses to Contacts”.

  16. email names

    please allow easy switching back and forth between email names. As Gmail now does. Without signing out and signing back in. Also stop putting read mail in the old mail category. Just leave all received mail in one place except for spam which has been deleted.

    Please go to mail.aol.com on a desktop computer and check if the password is correct. If you are able to sign in this way, clear your cookies and cache on the mobile device and try again.

    1.Fix setting to allow AOL to automatically sign in. 2. FIX Calendar. It doesn't send reminders. This has been a complaint from others and myself for a longtime and since nothing has been repaired it's obvious the problems are not being investigated by you and will never be repaired

    When you see incorrect local information (such as the news or weather for a different location) on your Welcome Screen, you may want to verify your location is correct. This can be done by making sure your correct City, State is in the top left of your Welcome Screen.

    If it is not, please click “Update Your Location” under Local News and Weather, enter your Zip Code and press Save.

    If this does not work, please clear your cache, cookies, and history.
    Here is an article for instructions: aol.it/1KTJUg6
    Then try adding in your Zip Code again.

    To switch from Celcius to Fahrenheit, just click on the ’’C’’ right next to the temperature level.
