  1. Spam settings

    Some of my e-mails are going into the spam folder that should not. I would like all e-mails from domain @vt.edu to go to my inbox, but some are automatically going there from this domain. This has only been going on, to my knowledge, for about a month. I would like to get this domain added to the safe list, either globally or in my mail settings (which I can't seem to do). Thanks

  2. contacts going into spam

    Many legitimate contacts are going into my spam folder - all in Arizona, where I am coordinating care for my mother-in-law. I have missed several important emails regarding her care. I click not spam and add to contacts, and the problem is persisting. Any help appreciated.

  9. Back Button is extremely infuriating - with AOL Mail

    Every other web mail provider Gmail, Outlook, iCloud support the back button.

    When using the back button on mail.aol.com it logs you out of the email service and you are forced to login again.

    Please make it so that it supports the back button!

  15. do not automatically move read mail to "old mail"

    How do I stop the automatic deletion of an email after I have read it? I want to delete them as I want to and not have one I have read automatically moved to old mail. I may want to review an email and having to go to old mail is a pain.

  18. Allow -- to convert to em dash (—) automatically

    Add option to make two hyphens (--) equal em dash ( — ) so my emails don't look semiliterate.

    Also, fix your Search so I can search for " em " (with spaces) without every instance of "email" coming up.
