  3. 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.

  6. 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???

  7. 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.

  12. Recently my spam mail has ballooned and I do not understand why. I have several email addresses, but the others have little or no spam.

    Recently I have started receiving a lot of spam at the email address on AOL. I have several other email addresses that rarely or never get any spam. How can I block these so I never get them again? I know I have never been to any of these sites especially since many of them are pornographic.

  13. You can provide a way to mass an delete email folders. I have two folders full of emails I no longer need.

    Allow customers to delete email folders with large amounts (thousands) of email stored with a single deletion.

  15. AOL News

    I accept that AOL is hopelessly liberal and publishes anything negative about Trump. But it is not acceptable that AOL ignores news about General Flynn's exoneration and the details of how the FBI plotted against him and the administration. You have no credibility.

  16. Train tech support to help customers without pressurizing them to buy packages for money to resolve issues

    I kept sending emails to abuse@aol.com for almost 2 months about overflowing spams without anyone paying attention to my repeated queries/complaints. The Help/Feedback section is blocked on my AOL page. Whenever I've called in the last 10-12 yrs., I get connected to another country and they only pressurize to buy a package to resolve issues. This has been a consistent problem. Do we pay every month to spend more money on tech support? Your company doesn't even value old clients!
