  1. 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.

  2. disable auto send

    It would be great if the automatic send feature (Ctrl+Enter) could be disabled. Just sent something by mistake while typing the email.

  4. Shut off Autosave function of the Draft or at least give the option to shut it off - annoying; or let us manually save a draft!

    I want to shut off the "autosave" function of an email draft. It's annoying and the autosaving is interfering with the sending function. At a minimum give us the option of manually saving a draft. We used to be able to shut it off under the Compose settings, but I can't see it. I'm using a desktop. Please shut it off!

  5. Why have you changed the enable link process in your emails?

    I used to be able to click on a link within an email and it would ask me if I wanted to enable links, I would click on enable and then click the link again and go to that link. This no longer works. I now have to turn off my Pop-up blocker in order to look at anything in my emails. This is crazy! I don't want to get Pop-ups on everything, I only want to be able to go to the links that I want. PUT THIS BACK!!!!!

  6. Please restore the text alert feature that I received when getting email from certain contacts. Would have been very useful during Florence!

  7. For decades I have depended on AOL for my my primary correspondence. With various new ownerships, Oath, and who knows the resulting fracture

    For decades I have depended on AOL for my my primary correspondence. With various new ownerships, Oath, and who knows the resulting fractures within the company as a result, the new comers have managed to ruin a household name. Of course it could be argued what do I expect from a free service — well nothing is free at the end of the day, and anyway AOL was produced out of innocence and a new era not unlike the discovery of the wheel. So now you have grown-up with the realization you can control people completely and close the door on…

  8. Combine all emails included in the same conversation into just one email.

    Right now all emails coming in are treated as separate emails, even though many are replies to an earlier email sent out. Why not combine the replies with the original email to reduce the number of entries in our Inbox?

  9. Please allow option to include a column for email size (in kb) in the regular listing

    I'd like to be able to view the size of each email (in kb or mb), in order to permit selection of very large emails that I may not wish to download to the client - or that won't download to the client. Consider adding a column to the email display list. Or add a setting with checkboxes so I can choose the columns I wish to display. Thanks for your consideration.

  10. dropbox

    On mobile AOL mail, it does not offer the option to surf Dropbox for files. It will only allow a very limited set of folders on my phone. Please add this functionality.

  11. Stop the "Control-Enter" method of sending email.

    I'm very tired of having my reply sent before I'm ready because I hit "control-enter" by mistake while typing. I would very much like this characteristic of the system to go away, or at least have the option to disable it. Mousing over to the "send" button would be my only preferred way to send a message.

  13. Merge Yahoo Account

    It would be nice to be able to link or merge my Yahoo and AOL accounts. A combined contacts list would be helpful to update details in one place instead of two. And a combined email inbox would make it easier to stay up to date with friends. The AOL and Yahoo mail look and feel have converged; it would be great to go further and unit the two services.

  15. Color our Email page like Gmail and Yahoo mail. (not a stationary issue)

    Please allow us to color our email page with either a personal picture or a picture online. And please do not merge this request with "stationary issues." I am referring to our personal email page. Thank you.

  18. Seriously, change the interface.

    It just looks too much old and is a mess !! Fonts like Avenir Next or Helvectia Nue should be used.
