  2. Screen the pop up ads in the right column

    Todays pop up ad is a link to a Bitcoin scam using Peter Jones as bait. Now I'm happy to have ads relating to what I have browsed recently but did think that Aol would screen them. Having identified that this is a scam I doubt I'll every look at the ads again

    If you previously created an Account Security Question (ASQ), you may be prompted to enter it when signing in to certain parts of your AOL account. You can no longer create or update your ASQ. Instead, we recommend you turn on 2-step verification and add a recovery phone number and email address to your account.

  6. I want to be able to send emails that restrict people to respond back from that email.

    I want to be able to send emails that restrict people to respond back from that email. I get a lot of notices that say "do not respond back to this email" because it won't let you and it's frustrating to have to search and find an email of who to respond back to regarding that email. So... I want to be able to respond back to some of those people the same way they do me. Let them see what it's like to not be able to respond back conveniently. I want to send notices and information and concerns…

  9. number of search results

    There suddenly seems to be a limit to 20 results for a search. If one has thousands of messages to sort into folders, it becomes completely impractical, on the other hand I've been told in the past by AOL that I mustn't exceed around 5000 messages in the inbox. So PLEASE reinstate unlimited (or a much more reasonable limit to) search results!

  11. I do not like the faint lettering on my favorites bar. The words used to be easier to read because they were black instead of gray.

    Improve the lettering and readability of the saved sites on my bookmarks bar. The letters look gray instead of black. Too difficult to read now.

  12. Put the settings with the processes again!

    Put settings with the processes again!
    You previously had it where we could adjust the mail processes on the mail screen, but it's not there any longer. It's off, hidden, in some mysterious location that can't be found but portions of the settings can be found via the mail "HELP" menu.

    Very silly.

    Put everything related to a service WITH that service rather than around the corner, behind the ficus plant, and next to the filing cabinets.

    You look for tools of a program within that program. Not in another program unrelated to the program you were using, for each…

  13. By NOT having us hit an "ok" on an email we delete! Its' a waste of time!!

    Every time I delete an email I don't want, a square shaped "pop up" comes on the monitor and has "cancel" and "ok"! When I delete something, I delete it; I don't want to have to keep hitting an "ok" on an unnecessary pop-up! It's time consuming and irritating at the same time. Can we please stop getting those??

  14. Forwarding Several from My Inbox

    I would like to forward several e-mails at one time from my Inbox to a work e-mail address. Currently, I can only forward one at a time, but with 60 e-mails a day in my AOL Inbox, this gets very tedious. I could understand a reasonable limit on the most that can be forwarded at one instance, but a limit of 'one' is not reasonable.

  16. Keep up with the New Breed of Internet Services

    You are definitely the best internet service provider. With competition from
    Yahoo back in the day. You used mail-in disk service like Netflix. Because of too much popularity your systems were overloaded from a lack of forecasting the success of your platform. You have to update your methodologies in order to succeed in today's marketplace.
    Best Regards, Pat... !!!

  17. Why have you changed the enable link process in your emails?

    I used to be able to click on a link within an email and it would ask me if I wanted to enable links, I would click on enable and then click the link again and go to that link. This no longer works. I now have to turn off my Pop-up blocker in order to look at anything in my emails. This is crazy! I don't want to get Pop-ups on everything, I only want to be able to go to the links that I want. PUT THIS BACK!!!!!
