  1. Allow the option to display full name and/or email address instead of username only on the email homepage.

    At present, on the email page that lists the emails, on the top right area (next to home, visit blog, and favorites; above the sign out and options links) there is no option to change the displayed name. Only the username is shown. It would be great if there could be an option to change the username displayed to email address and/or full name.

  3. Remove checkbox for "All" Inbox

    Several times, I've accidentally clicked the box above the inbox and deleted everything in my inbox. I've caught it and was able to move it back, but what if I do the same in the trash box and actually delete it!?! REMOVE that check box!

  4. Please allow option to include a column for email size (in kb) in the regular listing

    I'd like to be able to view the size of each email (in kb or mb), in order to permit selection of very large emails that I may not wish to download to the client - or that won't download to the client. Consider adding a column to the email display list. Or add a setting with checkboxes so I can choose the columns I wish to display. Thanks for your consideration.

  6. AOL blocks me from using my other AOL account, demanding verification through email or TXT message or through third email account (associate

    AOL should be less parochial.
    I am traveling, and AOL notice "unusal activity" - blocking me from accessing my other email account, while demanding some form of "verification" involving my cell phone. I DO NOT USE CELL PHONE WHILE TRAVELING ABROAD. AND I MAY NOT HAVE ONE. I HAVE PROBLEM WITH LOGGING TO MY ASSOCIATED EMAIL ACCOUNT, WHICH IS RARELY USED. Getting login info for the side email account is troublesome, and demanding it is unexpected. Please devise less difficult ways of verification. AND: users of AMERICA (onLine) may sometimes leave their parish and visit monks in Tibet. Or in…

  11. How can I make chronological list of all my emails with a contact?

    My idea to to have AOL enable me to make a chronological list of my emails with a contact over time. I would think this should have been a feature since I started this account 20 years ago. My second idea is to just leave AOL permanently and take my emails with me. But AOL won't allow this either. Why does AOL disrespect its members by making it difficult to communicate with an actual person at AOL???

    Oh, it seems I MUST accept your terms. Why doesn't AOL believe it MUST treat us with respect???

  15. address lines.. enlarge the to: line as we cannot tell if we put a small o or q. it only shows some of the word.. thank you.

    the address line needs to be larger so you can tell what letter was typed. you cannot tell an "o" from a "q" when the bottom or top of a letter is cut off. Thank you.

  17. Filter contacts by phone number

    Provide options to filter contacts by phone number. Largely helps in filtering unwanted email addresses that have got auto added despite disabling that option.

  18. Improve the AOL "Help" Feature

    You should amend your "help" feature so that customers can describe the specific (technical) problem they are having and not have to go through the various answers available on your site, which may not be applicable. In my case, I have a problem all of a sudden where my emails seem to go to the Trash or Junk file of my addressee. I go through your options, but none fits my problem. It is very disheartening. Thank you

  19. Make email inbox more productive and guarantee that no folders that was created are not all of the sudden gone.

    aol mail should be more customizable making it more productive like the gmail where you can create labels for the inbox for important/urgent.

    That way one does not have to search through the mail to find a specific thing

    aol is being obselete for this reason,
