    Stop running 'unseen' ads in the background in the email. It slows my computer down to a near stop in the email. The message comes up 'This web page is using significant energy, etc. I finally clicked 'control' on that warning, and up comes an entire ad.

  2. SPAM - Return to Sender

    Have a "RETURN TO SENDER " button that tells them to STOP sending mail. This will force them to deal with a flood of email in their box. AOL customers should not have to deal with trying to unsubscribe to all the junk mail. WHO SOLD my mail address to all of the Spam senders; AOL? STOP IT .

  4. SPAM Filter ??

    Your spam filter regularly moves messages from my kid's high school list serv into the spam folder. I had to turn the filter off, so I wouldn't miss any important e-mail, now the messages get filtered out again. What is going on!!
    And add to the list of blocked mail entire domains, not just individual addresses. Actually you should allow for a list to be imported.

    By continually using the Not Spam button, you are training your spam filter and our systems to recognize important emails. Additionally, if you are using an email application, like Outlook, Mac Mail, Windows Mail, or the mail app on your mobile device, please check the incoming mail filters in the application’s settings, and change the filters, so that all new emails are kept in the Inbox.

    In order to block incoming emails from an entire domain, go to mail.aol.com – Options – Mail Settings – Spam Settings – and add the domain name (e.g. @example.com) inside the “Block Mail From Addresses I Specify” field, click the plus button, then Save Settings.

  5. Why doesn't AOL "remember" me?

    Why doesn't AOL "remember" me. I click "keep me signed in", which supposedly is teh replacement for "remember me". But I also later sign out, of course. It doesn't remember me when I return.

  6. Not happy about having to click twice to delete a SPAM email

    Not happy about having to click twice to delete a SPAM email. Please fix this.....it takes twice as long to clean up the SPAM folder. Very aggravating....time is important.

  7. Way too much spam and a friending option is needed.

    AOL should provide an automatic block and delete spam emails feature instead of letting them get to the spam folder, especially if the sender is not friended. If there was a friending request feature that would let the recipient know that someone wants to friend them that would be different, then the recipient could accept or decline. That is an option that would be useful.

    We need sub folders inside any folder. It does not make sense to create a new folder any time without the chance to group them!

  13. screen advertising better before accepting it.

    Please stop posting ads that are in foreign languages. It's very disturbing.

  14. Turn off SPAM filter

    I used to be able to disable the spam filter. I can no longer do that. I use POP to retrieve my email and am missing very important emails because they are not delivered to me but saved on your site. This negates the usefulness of POP. Why don't you give the users the option to disable spam filtering? It makes no sense that you don't. Please fix this!!!!

  15. news

    The journalists at AOL must think we are all stupid. The news stories that you post on the front page of AOL are nothing less than insulting the intelligence of readers. I agree with the comment made by another AOL user - "Your news is NOT worth reading...pathetic." SOOOO TRUE!!! Now I am to the point where I just ignore anything on the front page of AOL because it is like opening the pages of the National Enquirer. Really???

  16. Block without opening

    I would like to be able to block from receiving any e-mail at all from senders without having to open the e-mail address to see the sender's e-mail address. A right click on the e-mail should suffice like when I chose to delete an e-mail without opening it.

  20. It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app.

    It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app. Management of my email without these filters is quite cumbersome. You used to have them. Please include them in the next (hopefully very soon) update. Thank you!
