  1. 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??

    • why can I block IP address

      you ruined Yahoo now your ruining AOL. we used to have word block as well as address block.
      My recommendation is to add IP block and re-add key word block
      lets make things better not worse

      • 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.

              • 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.

                • put blocking mail in the headers

                  block or perm delete email contact should be a button along with the delete move and read buttons. that way you dont have to go through half a dozen pages just to block someone. by the time i get there i forgot the name of the address i wanted to block.

                        • Not spam missing

                          The Not Spam button is missing, it says Spam again in the Spam folder. I'm using classic mail. There should be a button saying Not-Spam in case an e-mail got flagged as spam by mistake. Thanks.

                                  Allow one to discontinue irrelevant individual advertisements. Often after a purchase had been made, or you just explored something you heard about, they advertise the products you have no interest in and it stays on your screen too long of a period. Often you already purchased or was just exploring the internet.

                                    • fix email Sent folder. Now shows email address only, even though "show names" is checked

                                      Even though my mail settings have the checked box next to "Show sender names instead of email addresses in message lists" , Sent folder now only displays the email address of whom I sent to. This was not the case until about a week ago, when a couple of things broke in AOL email. To include a 2 year old calendar event from 2016 mysteriously popping up into this month in 2018. Looks like AOL did and upgrade or had to to a restore from backup on their mail server and something didn't go as planned.

                                      • vcf export import contacts

                                        I've got a vcf file of contacts I'd like to import.
                                        And it would be excellent if I could export a vcf file of contacts.
                                        As I understand it I could edit them as a CSV excel file then reload.
