  1. 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.

    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.

    Due to recent adjustments to the AOL Mail platform, the Spam Settings customization, are no longer available for all accounts. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    In order to block a specific sender, go to Options – Mail Settings – Spam Settings and add the email addresses in the box below “Block Mail from Addresses I Specify”, then click Save Settings at the bottom, and in case you receive unwanted emails in the Inbox, mark them as Spam.

  10. don't change my email; today December 27, 2018 I now have a terrible email experience and where are my "older emails?"

    AOL did some recent changes to my email and I hate those changes !
    How can I change back to the previous way? Example, before, I could read a message and then delete or save it. Now when I finish a message, the next message automatically opens ! This is a major security issue, since that message could be bad spam or malware, etc. Please change this email system back or tell me how to change it back to the way it was.

  11. "Today on AOL" Landing Page - Disable

    In my settings, I deselected the box that says "Show me Today on AOL when signing in". Yet every single time I log in, it takes me to the "Today on AOL" page. I double-checked my settings and the box is still deselected, but it keeps doing exactly what I asked it not to do.
    Any chance you can get the system to actually recognize the settings?
    Thanks.

    By un-clicking Today on AOL when you sign in, you will be directed to your Inbox, not the news page, however this will not remove the news page from your mailbox. If this is not happening, please make sure to have the latest version of your browser or change the browser.

    If you are using AOL web-mail (mail.aol.com) you will need to sign out of an account, from the top right corner of the page, then sign back in using another account. Unfortunately AOL web-mail does not have a switch account feature.

    In case you are using an email client on your Windows 10 (e.g. Windows Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird), please follow the steps from the section titled ‘Instructions for common email apps’ from the article below, in order to add another account.

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    We recommend using the ‘Standard’ version of AOL Mail. To switch to it, simply click the ‘Options’ menu located in the top right corner of the screen, then click ‘Standard Version’.

  16. 2-step Verification

    I also did the 2 Step Verification. Sure enough, I had problems getting my emails to synch on 3 devices: my iPhone, my NOOK and my MacBook Pro!

    1 Possible Solution: Please have AOL Programmers include a STATEMENT in the 2 Step Verification directions ----that 2 Step Verification should NOT be used for anyone with more than 1 device, please!

    Innocently, people know about 2 Step Verification for many other applications, browsers, etc ...and they and I believed we were ADDING SAFETY via AOL's 2 Step Verification! We are mainly people with 2-3 devices. TY!
