  1. hovering over "From" entries should show the sender complete URL.

    This is needed due to the huge number of fake messages containing as names legit places, but the real URL proves them to be fakes for phishing. AOL had it for a while but now it is lost.

  3. You can improve this site by not showing the president's face each and every day!

    Do Donald Trump have stock in AOL.COM? If he is not paying for his face on here, why do I see it every time I log on. You asked my opinion that's it.

  4. Space restrictions

    The area available for comments or replies is much too small..It is nearly impossible to get any amount of facts or pertinent information posted.
    Also the site has tons of slow loading ads, notices and whatall that slow down the response and typing. This is most annoying and discourages the use of your site. Look at Yahoo's site and accommodations the provide users... and you will see the difference. Thanks for listening..J.R.

  5. SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRESET INTERVALS

    SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRE-SET INTERVALS RATHER THAN MANUALLY: When composing an email, it would save much frustration for drafts to be saved automatically at intervals, for example every 2 minutes, rather than to do a manual save to drafts at intervals. Manual saves are forgotten more often than not, and that means losing what has been composed for random unintended/unexpected reasons. THANK YOU!

  6. addressbook

    Put the **** addressbook as an icon.

    Can never find it. To edit.

    Oh I am sure it is some convoluted place.

    Just don't think I need to go to google to find your addressbook should be more intuitive. Don't you think?

  9. Hey AOL - how about less emphasis on ads, and more attention to your customers?

    It is extremely frustrating to have to put up with no less than 4 full screens of advertising just to actually get to my Email!! Separating the Login screen from the Password screen, just so AOL can sell more ad revenue, wastes my time, slows the process and is very annoying. Also, I notice constant problems with email loading and navigation, but those stupid, annoying banner ads always come right up!!

    We will make sure to reach out to the product team to see if we can bring back local news from that specific outlet.

  11. Allow us to delete all mail with one click

    I have over 100,000 emails and will never be able to read all of them. Is there a way I can delete them all at once

  12. backing up of emails

    for people who use a paying service, there should be an unlimited time to have you emails restored. 10 days is really ridiculous. what are we really paying for? there are a lot of other free services out there.

    The best way to resolve this is to mark the emails as “Not Spam” and add the addresses in your contact list, that way you can train the spam filter to better identify important emails in the future.

    Also if you use a mobile device or email client to access your mail over IMAP, please check the Spam filters in that application, to make sure it’s not marking important emails as spam.

  16. Theme change

    When changing the theme of AOL mail it would be nice to see the AOL mail removed from each theme. Users should know they are using AOL...

  18. Your e-mail editor should include an option for a user to change/delete all instances of a given text string.

    Include an option in your write e-mail editor for a user to change/delete all instances of a given text string. You used to have that feature. I don't know why you removed it.
