  1. search

    Searching is not working for items past a month. It does not work in the standard version and ONLY works in the Basic/accessible version. Could someone please resolve the functionality on the standard version of aol mail. Thank you.

  4. Make it more dependable

    Lately, after composing an email, it states that it was not sent even though it was. During a session, I'm frequently told that I'm no longer signed in and then have to log in again. Often when I delete an email, the screen fades and the deletion is delayed for up to 30 seconds. Usually AOL is very dependable and stable. A friend on the other side of the country who also has AOL has told me that she is having these same problems. Please look into it. Much thanks.

  5. Please tell me how I can keep recently deleted mail for a week - sometimes I inadvertently delete, and can't recover. Thanks

    Create a setting for keeping deleted mail for a desired amount of time.
    Sometimes, mail is inadvertently deleted, and never able to recover.

  6. Tell us how do I stop certain words from getting thru to our e-mails.

    I would like to be able to stop certain words from getting to me all together but I do not know how and cannot find anything in any of your setting. I am 70 years old and most of your settings do not help us old people that do not know about computer.

  7. Taboola

    Drop Taboola as a poster on your news page. They post only distorted spam. They list items being in my area with pictures of buildings or desert back grounds that are several thousand mules from my area. They produce rambling worthless items and I have noticed my computer slows down or crashes when on their pages. They are junk and need to be removed.

  10. Add Enable reading pane to preview mail in SPAM folder ONLY as an option

    The current setting under OPTIONS > MAIL SETTINGS > GENERAL is to ENABLE READING PANE TO PREVIEW MAIL applies to ALL folders. Which I don't use or need. However, I would like to have the PREVIEW MAIL option available only in the SPAM folder.

    Suggest adding under OPTIONS > MAIL SETTINGS > in either GENERAL or SPAM SETTING, the option to ENABLE READING PANE TO PREVIEW MAIL IN SPAM FOLDER ONLY.

  14. leave the themes to us to choose

    Asa a Paying Customer for the last 16 years I would like to have my customization left alone. It changes each time I go on line and I have had this theme for 10 years Other wise I will stop paying for a service I'M not receiving anyway as it was a dial up account Prior to 2008 Since I have been using the free version. I see no reason to pay you

  15. Saving emails on my PC

    Why can't I save my emails to my PC and not have to sign in if I want to read one I saved. The old system was so much smoother and easy to use. Thanks.

  16. Every single time I come over here I have to change from the standard to basic setting. Isn't there a way for you to save my preference?

    It is MUCH easier to maneuver in the inbox in the basic/accessible setting than in the standard setting. Every single time I come to the inbox I change it to the basic/accessible setting and yet every single time you change it back. Isn't there something that can be done to save my preferences? This is getting real old real fast.

  17. I want AOL to automatically delete emails that only contain links to click on

    Many spam emails contain only links to click on. AOL should be able to recognize these as spam and block or delete them completely. I do not want them coming to my spam folder which inundates that folder and it is difficult to sift thru all of these unwanted spams looking for emails that may have gone to the spam folder in error.
