  2. It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app.

    It would be most helpful to have filters for new mail, unread mail, flagged, unflagged, attachments like you have on the aol app. Management of my email without these filters is quite cumbersome. You used to have them. Please include them in the next (hopefully very soon) update. Thank you!

  3. news

    The journalists at AOL must think we are all stupid. The news stories that you post on the front page of AOL are nothing less than insulting the intelligence of readers. I agree with the comment made by another AOL user - "Your news is NOT worth reading...pathetic." SOOOO TRUE!!! Now I am to the point where I just ignore anything on the front page of AOL because it is like opening the pages of the National Enquirer. Really???

  5. 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.

  6. Space restrictions

    The area available for comments or replies is much too small..It is nearly impossible to get any amount of facts or pertinent information posted.
    Also the site has tons of slow loading ads, notices and whatall that slow down the response and typing. This is most annoying and discourages the use of your site. Look at Yahoo's site and accommodations the provide users... and you will see the difference. Thanks for listening..J.R.

  7. SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRESET INTERVALS

    SAVE DRAFTS AUTOMATICALLY AT PRE-SET INTERVALS RATHER THAN MANUALLY: When composing an email, it would save much frustration for drafts to be saved automatically at intervals, for example every 2 minutes, rather than to do a manual save to drafts at intervals. Manual saves are forgotten more often than not, and that means losing what has been composed for random unintended/unexpected reasons. THANK YOU!

  8. screen advertising better before accepting it.

    Please stop posting ads that are in foreign languages. It's very disturbing.

  9. addressbook

    Put the **** addressbook as an icon.

    Can never find it. To edit.

    Oh I am sure it is some convoluted place.

    Just don't think I need to go to google to find your addressbook should be more intuitive. Don't you think?

  11. When you open an email why is the toolbar at the top in white and shadowed so you can barely read delete, forward, send etc.

    When an email is open, the tool bar at the top is a very light shade and the send, delete, forward commands are white and barely visible. Why is it this way and why was it changed. Please fix it.

  12. Allow us to delete all mail with one click

    I have over 100,000 emails and will never be able to read all of them. Is there a way I can delete them all at once

  13. backing up of emails

    for people who use a paying service, there should be an unlimited time to have you emails restored. 10 days is really ridiculous. what are we really paying for? there are a lot of other free services out there.

  17. Dates on emails

    The old date system you had on emails was much better than the new one for locating old emails.

  20. Your e-mail editor should include an option for a user to change/delete all instances of a given text string.

    Include an option in your write e-mail editor for a user to change/delete all instances of a given text string. You used to have that feature. I don't know why you removed it.
