  1. fix the order you throw things out

    you don't throw trash away in a barrel by sticking it down the bottom of the can by the date you received it from the store...so why don't you sort the mail we discard in the order we discard it!

  2. Limitations on categories

    Why are there only three categories in the calendar system (Personal, Birthday and Holidays). It would be beneficial to have others such as work, meetings and travel, etc. or at least a way to color the three categories differently.

  3. Why can't I edit the subject line in an email in my inbox?

    It's really annoying that we can't edit the subject line in an email. For instance, my real estate agent sends emails with the subject line Properties of Interest". I would like to edit that to show which actual location the email is referring to.

  5. incoming notification for new emails need to include who it is from and not just the subjext line

    Not sure where this suggestion has gone however it does not appear to be here any longer...New Emails notifications that pop up on my iPhone or iPad show the RE line, 1st line of the body of the email and the date/time. It also shows FROM but it has MY info as this one I'm looking at is a reply to my email. NO WHERE does it show WHO is replying to my email. On new emails to me (not a reply) they don't show ANYTHING as to who it is FROM. PLEASE! include the FROM in the notifications on…

  6. Make it so I can use my iPad to block email addresses because none of your mobile apps have the option to do so.

    I should be able to use all of the things I can on a computer, while logged in to AOL, as I should on my iPad? That just kind of makes sense.

  12. The flag next to the selection box

    The placement of the important flag next to the selection box is in a bad place. When you try to delete several emails at once that may be advertisements that you choose not to view, you accidentally hit the flag because of its placement and loose the selections you have made to delete. Put the important flag in a different area. This is annoying.

  13. Outage and Technical Alerts

    Need an alert system for AOL mail members to let them know when the mail service is down. A text alert system would be great. Today I could not download documents on my PC or on my phone. This made for a very unproductive work day. If I had confirmation that it was a server issue as I suspected it was, I could have made alternate arrangements to receive the documents I really needed to download today.
