  2. 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).

  5. archive email

    There should be a better way to either delete or archive emails in order to clean up very large email inboxes
    1. Create delete from date---> to date ranges
    2. Create Archive folders, similar to Outlook

  7. Downloading Saved Mail?

    You use to let people save the old mail to our systems if we liked. I would like to save my old mail to my system and not have to get on yours system every time I am looking for some thing in my old mail and use up the space that you give me for old mail on your system.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  13. put the dates back on the email instead of the time of day the email was sent to you or fix it where the people

    do not change someone's email to the time of day the email was sent to to me out the clear blue aol changed my email to show me when the mail was sent the time of day. I would appreciate it if you would change mind back to the date. That works for me the date the email came in.

  15. vcf export import contacts

    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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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
