  1. Block without opening

    I would like to be able to block from receiving any e-mail at all from senders without having to open the e-mail address to see the sender's e-mail address. A right click on the e-mail should suffice like when I chose to delete an e-mail without opening it.

  2. Allow scheduled sending of emails

    Why can't we compose an email and schedule when we want that email sent? That is a very useful feature when you are for example, catching up on many things over a weekend and sending business emails you want delivered Monday morning so they are hopefully not lost in the email abyss on the other end over the weekend.
    There are also times when you think of something needed but know it should really go later so you write an email as you think of it. but want it sent at the appropriate time.

  4. Auto-deleting Spam

    Not a good idea to delete Spam messages automatically as from time to time a vald and wanted email gets put into spam. Perhaps make it a user option?

  5. Turn off SPAM filter

    I used to be able to disable the spam filter. I can no longer do that. I use POP to retrieve my email and am missing very important emails because they are not delivered to me but saved on your site. This negates the usefulness of POP. Why don't you give the users the option to disable spam filtering? It makes no sense that you don't. Please fix this!!!!

  6. Why doesn't AOL "remember" me?

    Why doesn't AOL "remember" me. I click "keep me signed in", which supposedly is teh replacement for "remember me". But I also later sign out, of course. It doesn't remember me when I return.

  10. FIX aol mail for continued use with microsoft edge

    FIX using Microsoft Edge for accessing AOL mail. Have been using it for years and just would not work starting yesterday. Followed the instructions your chat advisers gave with no success. Had to install chrome. However, I was able to access my second aol mail account in Edge. Please FIX this problem for all of us dissatisfied customers. And tell the chat people to stop ending the session while people are following their directions.

  14. Dark Theme Background option!

    I'd like there to be an option where you can choose, not just the "AOL" Logo theme only, but also the Background too. (Like the whole screen.) The White (Standard) screen can become a real Eye-Strain at times + also cause Headaches at times too. The Black Tone would Really help out lots of us AOL Customers, when entering our Email Pages! PLEASE MAKE THIS COME TO BE AS ANOTHER UPDATE!

    Thanks!

  15. SPAM Filter ??

    Your spam filter regularly moves messages from my kid's high school list serv into the spam folder. I had to turn the filter off, so I wouldn't miss any important e-mail, now the messages get filtered out again. What is going on!!
    And add to the list of blocked mail entire domains, not just individual addresses. Actually you should allow for a list to be imported.

    By continually using the Not Spam button, you are training your spam filter and our systems to recognize important emails. Additionally, if you are using an email application, like Outlook, Mac Mail, Windows Mail, or the mail app on your mobile device, please check the incoming mail filters in the application’s settings, and change the filters, so that all new emails are kept in the Inbox.

    In order to block incoming emails from an entire domain, go to mail.aol.com – Options – Mail Settings – Spam Settings – and add the domain name (e.g. @example.com) inside the “Block Mail From Addresses I Specify” field, click the plus button, then Save Settings.

  16. PUT BACK THE BLOCK ALL MAIL CHECK BOX

    Put back the block check box so I can block all mail!!!

  18. Add other email accounts

    Dear Concern,

    Is there any way to import and receive emails from other email service like Gmail, Yahoo etc. to my AOL account and send emails on behalf of them using AOL. I think nowadays this is a common feature of all email service providers' but couldn't find it on AOL.

    Looking forward to seeing your response.

    Thanks & Regards,

  19. I would like AOL to have a "read receipt" option. I send e-mail that I wish I could get a receipt that the person I sent it to opened it.

  20. Just Came Over From Netscape -- When Can I Go Back To Those Settings / Views / Layouts?

    Netscape mail was VERY organized and viewable - 20 messages per page, easy navigation to other pages and folders, simple links to move / delete / spam list messages. This AOL page seems to be nothing more than Outlook in disguise.
