  1. My aol mail stopped working in a 3rd party consolidation app, citing settings - gmail, hotmail, outlooketc still work

    Aol stopped working in my blackberry hub + services - "can't authenticate, check settings (in AOL) and try again" All my other emails work, the app doesn't integrate either. Please put specific directions in help for settings to allow my aol mail to work again. The App for android is untenable - no flexibility at all for intra-device organization, cumbersome GUI.

  3. Third Party App Passwords

    Background:
    My email suddenly stopped sending and receiving (minutes after it was working fine) a few days ago. I use the desktop version of Outlook with POP/SMTP settings. After days of trying to fix it, I realized that I needed to generate an app password in the Account Security section of my Verizon AOL email account, and then enter that password in the Outlook settings (File - Account Settings - Server Settings). I talked to an AOL customer support representative (which unfortunately is not 100% free - I needed to sign up for a paid monthly service with the first…

  7. Let ``read'' messages stay in New Mail until I delete them!

    Do NOT delete New Mail as soon as a message is read! This is very annoying and does not happen in gmail, which I prefer. Allow the user to hold the message in New Mail, delete the message or send it to Old Mail. Otherwise keep all New Mail messages until the USER moves them. I spend an hour a day searching for messages in Old Mail that I want to keep after I read them.

  8. View Message Source is broken in Basic\Accessible Version

    I am using https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/basic (Basic/Accessible Version).

    When viewing an email message,if I select More\View Message Source, then a new tab opens with https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/basic in inbox view, not a tab with the message source.

    If I switch to to Standard Version, View Message Source opens a new Window with the message source, not a new Tab.

    Also, when I Save As from the new Window, the file name is always "rawplaintext"instead of a unique name such as MessageXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.txt which was available in Basic\Accessible Version.

  9. Security

    The Recent Activity function within Settings does not allow the USER to see at the same time if there are more than one device logged into the email account. For instance, sometimes when I log off, the LOG OFF pop up prompt does not always appear. So I don't know if another unknow device is accessing my account. Recently Activity function should display all devices (phones, laptop) log onto the account at that moment. Thanks for listening.

  19. auto-forwarding email

    I am disappointed that you do not allow auto-forwarding of email. I have been a subscriber since 1989. I will spend the next month updating all of my accounts that used the aol email address to another service.

  20. I only want "UNREAD EMAILS"!

    Instead of just unread emails... my inbox now shows every single email (thousands) until I click the dropdown box and hit "see unread".

    The next time I sign in or refresh, those thousands of emails are back again. WTF?

    Never had this problem before ... I just want AT ALL TIMES to see unread emails in my inbox.

    AOL is getting horrible especially with all of the ads everywhere (that now look like emails) after almost 20years it's about time to move on...
