  4. If an ad shows a little (x) box in the upper right corner it allows for your feedback. It doesn't matter what you mark it still comes back.

    I see these articles or ad's in boxes and it allows you to click the (x) in the upper right corner to give feedback. I keep seeing these celebrity ******* who I am supposed to be surprised that they are perverts or something that someone thinks is appropriate to normal people. I keep hitting the "offensive" mark but these same perverted articles keep returning. Why bother asking if you aren't planning on doing anything about what we think or feel is offensive?

  6. attachment review

    Title: Review suspicious attachments
    I called Tech support to inquire on an email that I received with an attachment from a friend that was suspicious. My friend did not respond to me. I would like to forward the email to an AOL tech support person that can open the attachment in a secure setting so I can know whether the attachment is malware. I had attempted to open the attachment on my iPhone and closed the email a few seconds after and I am concern that I may have downloaded a malware. Please respond. Thanks.

  8. As of yesterday I started getting Ads that I cannot delete. They are always at the top of my emails and there's no way to delete them.

    Please stop the Ads with no way to delete or block them. I've had AOL for 30 years and have never experienced this. Please stop the Ads!

  9. Give me the ability to turn off the SPAM Filter

    I do not go to the AOL site to check my email. I use Outlook and connect to the server using POP. As such, I am missing many emails that are not SPAM, but AOL has marked as SPAM. Your solution is for me to access the AOL mail site and filter by the senders email. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION. As I said, I use Outlook and only Outlook. I have a spam filter and Norton scanning items as they are delivered. I do not need or want AOL to filter my email. Either fix it, or I will…

  13. Unread mail

    I used to be able to sort and find all of my unread mail. I can no longer do that. It would be nice to have that feature back very soon. Thanks.

  14. Searching for specific address does not yield prefer results

    When I search for a certain address or person, it instead leads to emails that have no correlation with what I am asking for. When I ask for one address, it will prioritize other addresses that do not relate. Please fix this, because this is impeding on my ability to work.

  17. Old deleted mail being fed to my mail app.

    I access AOL mail with the Macintosh Mail application. Starting several days ago (around May 12, 2020) all my previously deleted emails from around 2018 and older began being fed to my computer again as if it were unread mail. At one point there were over 99,000 emails pending transfer to my computer! Every time I open my mail app this transfer commences. Please resolve this error!

  19. Stop pushing all of the liberal fake news on your news page.

    Stop pushing all of the liberal fake news on your news front page. Pushing your Socialist view onto your customers. Really sick of it. Who is vetting this stuff? Soros?

  20. Your SPAM filters are a misreable failure!

    When I click on Support Options & want to choose "email", this message displays:

    "Email Us -
    Email support is currently unavailable due to COVID-19 health and safety considerations for our employees. For help with an issue, search our help articles.

    Your "Help" articles are absolutely worthless! Receiving dozens of SPAM daily - several from the same addresses. Three times in the past several weeks I maxed the block list because of too many SPAM being received & had to delete 100s of bad addresses just to add more to the list. Why make the block list unlimited - or…
