  1. Need an option to Delete a Sent Item

    Some networks allow users to delete a sent item before it is opened.
    Since the "Save Draft" and "Send" buttons are next to each other, we need an "Unsend" button.

      • I want to be able to send emails that restrict people to respond back from that email.

        I want to be able to send emails that restrict people to respond back from that email. I get a lot of notices that say "do not respond back to this email" because it won't let you and it's frustrating to have to search and find an email of who to respond back to regarding that email. So... I want to be able to respond back to some of those people the same way they do me. Let them see what it's like to not be able to respond back conveniently. I want to send notices and information and concerns…

          • stop sending superbowl ads - I don't watch ANTHEM KNEELERS

            Why do you keep giving me the same ad some kind of pizza and Super bowl.

            I WOULDN'T accept a free ticket to watch those guys Kneel during our national anthem no matter who was playing.

            Whoever is paying for that ad is getting screwed if it cost them 1 penny to show it to me - worthless ad.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Eliminate the necessity of deleting an email message 4 times.

                      Eliminate the necessity of deleting an email message 4 times. I delete a message once; I'm asked if I really, really want to delete the message; I answer "Yes." Then the message goes to the "Recently Deleted" folder. There I must delete it twice more. Who considers this an improvement ? I'm considering severing all my contact with AOL. Other browsers have reduced the number of times a person has to delete an email message.

                        • Make email inbox more productive and guarantee that no folders that was created are not all of the sudden gone.

                          aol mail should be more customizable making it more productive like the gmail where you can create labels for the inbox for important/urgent.

                          That way one does not have to search through the mail to find a specific thing

                          aol is being obselete for this reason,

                          • Allow the option to display full name and/or email address instead of username only on the email homepage.

                            At present, on the email page that lists the emails, on the top right area (next to home, visit blog, and favorites; above the sign out and options links) there is no option to change the displayed name. Only the username is shown. It would be great if there could be an option to change the username displayed to email address and/or full name.

                                  Why no reading pane option for left of screen? The way it is now is the most inconvenient way to view. Choice to move to left would actually make using the pane easy. See Outlook for template.

Is there a way to restrict these domains? Also, I would like AOL to return the option to block emails containing specific words or phrases. I have a paid account and it is very important to me that I be able to have the ability to restrict the excessive spam emails and emails containing ****** content. If…

                                      • PPlease return the "block emails containing these words" filter - IT WORKED -y remove it?

                                        Return the spam setting for blocking emails that contained specific words. I have NO IDEA why you would remove it - and looking at all of the exact same complaints I don't know why you would not have returned it to spam setting. Adding the email address does nothing because they just send **** with a new address -why should I pay you for this inconvenience? I accept better for my money.
