  1. Searching mails.

    Allow the user to select the file they would like to search. I do not always want to search through deleted files. The default to ALL files produces too much junk. The options should be for the user to select new, old, sent or deleted mail. Not all by default.

    • Wild cards (*) in email address filters no longer allowed

      Could wild cards in email address filters be allowed again. eg: Send *@anywhere.com to MyFolder. This used to work up until a few months ago.

        Thank you for sharing your feedback, we’ll send it over to the Product Team and hope to have it implemented in the future.

      • Support List-Unsubscribe

        I’d love to see AOL support it whereas instead of having to click the unsubscribe link in the email and another webpage opening confirming the unsubscribe you are simply unsubscribed (without the need to load another webpage).

        • Why do I suddenly have a limit for the number of people I can have on one of my contact lists?

          I need help: I tried to change the email address for a contact on one of my lists, which has 165 names on it. I deleted the original email, but when I tried to add the new address, I got this message: "Too many email addresses for a distribution list." This is seriously interfering with my work.

                • 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

                  • Delete individual advertisements that stay on the screen too long.

                    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.

                    • Add additional options for Fonts that we can choose from

                      I believe all of us that uses webmail only has up to 9 Fonts to choose from. I would like to request if this can be increased so that we can have more options to choose.

                      • Grouping folders

                        Change it back to the way it was brfore; where a customer can have folders and sub folders within the folder. By separating all of your folders individually in makes it very difficult to organize

                          • 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.

                              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.

                                  • The area to compose your email keeps shrinking. It is now less than 1/4 of the screen. It needs to double, at least. Get rid of the junk.

                                    Most of the stuff on the screen has nothing to do with writing an email. All of that stuff should disappear when you open the pane for writing. The address and subject line should scroll out of view as soon as you reach the bottom of the pane. The autosave bar should be eliminated. The URL line and the search line should be hidden.

                                    • 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.
