  1. The inbox isn't showing any of my new e-mails? I can only see make them appear if I switch to Basic version.

    The inbox isn't showing any of my new e-mails? I can only see make them appear if I switch to Basic version. This is happening more often than I care for. Sometimes I cannot access my inbox for a whole day and it requires me to sign out and re-loggin to regain access. Very annoying having to switch to Basic version.

    Also, this is ONLY a problem on my laptop using Apple MacBook Pro so it may be related to the last two iOS.

    Help!

  5. port 995 for sending emails to 3 party Software not working

    port 995 not accessable using my very easy to use 3r party client (client software has not advertising and is MUCH faster than AOL online). I can send out emails (which went away for about a week), but now I can't receive any mails via port 995. And I would add that I changed NO settings prior to the failure. Also, prior to failing completley, I had to to "ping" the Send/receive 5 or 10 times to get it to work, but after a few days it completley failed.

  8. Session Timeout

    I'm in the middle of actively typing a message to a friend when you interrupt to tell me that my session has closed while I was idle and I need to sign in and start over. So, typing messages is idle work???? Of course nothing was saved and I did have to start all over. What B.S.!!!!

  9. Why does AOL request password on a regular basis?

    Why does AOL request password update on a regular time frame? I can not find the info requested and no frame or option to update / change password. I am extremly frustrated at this point.

  12. Why am I attached to a UK address that is constantly causing me to get a reply that it didn't go through?

    I am constantly getting a note after sending an email that the UK address did not go through. WHAT? WHY....I have been a paid subscriber for years and am finding it harder and harder to use and depend on AOL
    And this UK note is ongoing.

  15. Blocking spam

    There has been a big uptick in spam email since the Corona virus struck. How about a spam blocking option like they have in Hotmail and Outlook? A couple of clicks and it's done. No guess work, no digging around to find the sender's address and it works.

  18. Stop putting a block when I try to access my mail using the Mac Mail APP

    I had to change computers because the one I used crashed due to liquid damage. However I was able to save the HD and have it installed in the new PC. Now my Mail App is blocked from accessing imap.aol.com so I cannot get may emails any more. Yes, I used the password created on the AOL website. IT STILL WILL NOT ACCEPT ACCESS TO MY MAIL VIA THE MAC MAIL APP. WHY???

  19. get rid

    The spam filter is worthless. Please get rid of it or allow me to disable it. It is impossible to look at anything in a message and tell if the user wants it, I download mail to my computer and the filter catches things I want but I miss them unless I go online and look at the spam.
