  1. News On AOL.. --

    You show a "story" of interest and when clicked on it opens in a new tab . You have to click "Next Page" far too many times to reach the one that addresses your original story theme. It takes too much time to read thru all the background and I normally click off these stories.

    Also.. the old format of AOL was better as you could access yr files off line... Hope feedback is helpful.

  2. Eliminate free advertising for Trump

    you should not show an advertisement to "meet Melania Trump" if you contribute to his campaign in the "Today on AOL" page. Not even sure that's legal as it looks like free advertiseing to me. At least make the jerk pay for the exposure. The whole thing is offensive to me. Otherwise I like AOL a lot.

  4. Drop Your News Service

    You should drop your news service. It's not a news service. It's just you spouting off trashy Leftist garbage day after day after day. If you can't be objective, or halfway moderate, or credible or trustworthy, just stop it. Give us cartoons, or animal videos, or something worth seeing. No more biased coverage.

  5. You may have cost me my biggest client.

    DO NOT MERGE THIS WITH ANY OTHER REQUEST. IT IS NOT THE SAME!!!!!!!!
    I used to be able to have the spam filter turned off. Suddenly, AOL started deciding what was spam. I don't see this on Outlook where I collect my message. I had eight orders from one company go into spam. Give back the option to disable the spam blocker. I can decide for myself what I want to keep and what I want to delete.

  6. Here's a mine waiting to be stepped on...

    Don't do what I just did! I was nearing the end of a detailed email I composed, when I went to another site to copy something I needed to paste. When I back-arrowed to Compose, everything I had written was gone and unretrievable. This AOL non-solution has been around for two decades. Isn't that long enough to fix glaringly poor programming. I was forced to switch from Verizon-hosted email to this train wreck. I suspect that Verizon or Oath broke it when they began leveraging it for Ad and profiling revenue. Email used to be a simple and essential tool.…

  8. UNSUBSCRIBE NOT WORKING

    Recently the UNSUBSCRIBE link at the bottom of spam emails doesn't work. Why? At the top of spam there is now a yellow bar that contains the message: we have disabled links and pictures. If you think it's safe then mark it as 'not spam'. It's SPAM! How the do I know if it's safe or not? Frankly, I don't want to find out. I just want unsubscribe and not get their ** spam anymore and delete what I have gotten. Get it sorted, AOL.

  9. Advertisements

    You are allowing advertisements from . This is a scam company. You do not receive the same clothing as advertised. You receive from an address in Chino, Ca. When you want to return the item for a refund, the Company tells you that you have to send it to China at your own expense - which by the way is over $100.00 in shipping costs. Stop showing their advertisements .

  10. 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.

  11. SPAM Choice controls

    I use my spam file for two things: (1) all the **** that gets sent can easily be deleted (and this seems to have gotten worse during the stay-at-home orders; and (2) to receive email from companies that I do want, but that send an enormous amount of email. On the second bullet here, I then can identify them quickly, open up and quickly determine if I want to keep or not. Have done this since opening an AOL account - 15+ years ago. Today, in looking through my SPAM file I find that AOL has decided how I will…

  18. Stop forcing us to mark spam as "not spam" to click unsubscribe links on spam emails!

    What idiot made this policy I don't know but by permanently blocking all links and images from emails in our spam folder you force us to mark spam as "not spam" to unsubscribe from spam mailing lists. This is a horrible, horrible idea. Get rid of it.
