  1. Problems with Printing Emails

    In oder to print out my emails completely, I must switch to the Basic/Accessible previous version of AOL and then switch back to the Standard Version. Otherwise, several words are cut off on the right side of the page. This is NOT acceptable and I hope this inconvenient, annoying glitch will be corrected asap. Thank you!

  2. searching body of old emails

    We need to be able to search for a complete phrase (enclose in quotes), not just individual words. It is ridiculous that I still must read two or three times as many emails as necessary in order to find the exact phrase that was used. If Google can offer this search function, why can't AOL?

  3. Don't send messages in the web site spam mailbox to my laptop as good mail.

    I got the AOL "mail suspended" phishing email today on my laptop. When I logged into AOL to report it as spam, it was already in the spam mailbox. If AOL had already put the email into the spam mailbox on the website, why was it forwarded to me on my laptop as a piece of good mail?

  4. PASSWORDS

    I have had AOL since 1999 and have always been pleased with it. But now, every time I sign on it makes me change the password. I'm done. If I try to sign in again, I will download everything I ever had in AOL and go to another email sponsor. This has been happening for the last 10 days. I'm done, I'm done, I'm done. Stop the ********* and move on.

  5. Interface with Office 365

    Seems neither no setting for AOL used within Microsoft Office 365 Outlook takes them, nothing POP, IMAP, Outlook.com, Office 365 - I have to manually log into this account to keep it from getting deleted after over four decades, I use it for research not a main email site, I have used Outlook for over four decades never have I seen such a mess at AOL, first Yahoo, then Verizon, the AOL Verizon, can you make up your mind who you are and have the users have the proper setting to set up Office 365 Outlook!

  7. AOL website needs to reflect the look of the new & improved look of the app. The website is a very old design.

    The new AOL app is great, big improvement. Now the website needs to be updated and reflect the look of the app. The AOL app working much better then GMail, which needs a lot of work to be done to it.

  8. emails

    Like most people, I get far more emails everyday than I actually read. It's really frustrating to go through them, checking the ones you're going to delete. Then you get to, oh lets say number 135, and accidentlally click outside the box. Then all of your check marks disappear and you have to start all over again. Will you fix that please.

    Your new e-Mail format ****. It runs everything together. I see someone else has asked you to go back to the old format ... repeatedly. You probably should pay attention to your customers or you may lose them. I'M ON THE VERGE OF LEAVING!!!

  18. Recurring failure notice won't stop

    No clear way to stop a recurring Failure Notice. Not seeing any way to stop the same notice that is repeating more than 50 times in my Inbox and don't want to miss a new Failure Notice. There needs to be a Help answer for this.

  19. 3rd party app passwords

    3rd party app passwords are truly stupid. What's wrong with using my online password? What else is stupid is this site. Lots of comments about it, but your site doesn't work, so cant vote for or join in support. How do you expect someone to accurately key in a jibberish 18 character password accurately? AOL used to be good, now sinking to the bottom with all the other useless **** on the internet.
