  1. 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?

    The best way to resolve this is to mark the emails as “Not Spam” and add the addresses in your contact list, that way you can train the spam filter to better identify important emails in the future.

    Also if you use a mobile device or email client to access your mail over IMAP, please check the Spam filters in that application, to make sure it’s not marking important emails as spam.

  3. 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.

  7. I would like an option other than HuffPost news. I

    I would like some more middle of the road option to HuffPost news. If only one can be used, I think it is only right that we should be seeing a more objective news source if we are forced to have only one.

  10. Verification Code Problems

    Please once again accommodate landline phones as backup contacts for your verification codes and similar communications. I live in a mobile phone dead spot, so more than half the time, I can't receive calls or texts to my mobile phone. Also I can't always access the backup email addresses that you offer as options.

    I want and need to be able for you to call my landline with your verification codes and other communications.

  12. 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.

  17. Important Emails, and/or auto filter labels and tags?

    Hello AOL,
    Is there a way to mark emails from specific contacts as important? So we can search them and perhaps set at custom notifications?
    iOS works great with VIP marked emails using the AOL, however it would be nice to have on your Web Email too.
    Or pehaps filters that automatically flag emails, with customizable labels and colors. This is a valuable outlook and gmail feature and wonder if AOL could devise a similar system?
    Thank you for your attention,
    Kim
