    • 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.

        • let under sixteens use aol mail

          Under sixteens still might need mail. Just because they are younger it does not mean they do not need it.

            • I am unable to paste from the Windows Clipboard to and AOL e-mail. That would be a good feature

              Using the Windows Snipping tool, select an item to snip, the have the ability to paste directly into e-mail. That is easy with Outlook.

              • Many providers allow text messages from cell phones to be received in an email account.I see avery long list of providers who allow sms meea

                Allow text messages from cell phones to be received in the email inbox.
                I see a long list of providers who allow "sms" messages to be sent to email accounts when searching for ways to get text messages through an email service., It's much faster and easier for the user.

                  • Forwarding Several from My Inbox

                    I would like to forward several e-mails at one time from my Inbox to a work e-mail address. Currently, I can only forward one at a time, but with 60 e-mails a day in my AOL Inbox, this gets very tedious. I could understand a reasonable limit on the most that can be forwarded at one instance, but a limit of 'one' is not reasonable.

                    • 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.

                          • Bug: Sorted folder loses sort when all marked and set to read.

                            To have a stable working set, i move all my incoming mail toa "Sorting" folder. Today it was set to sort by From. I clicked to check all and then set them all to 'read'. I lost my 'From' sort, had to click the header twice to regain the sort.

                              • Allow automatic deletion of emails older than 2 months (or tell me how if it is already possible)

                                I almost never go to AOL mail as my mail is downloaded directly into Apple Mail on my Mac. I did go there when I realized that AOL was WRONGLY flagging emails as spam. I was astonished to see how many emails were in my inbox. Is it possible to set something that will delete anything older than say, 6 weeks? Now that I know I have to retrieve valid and sometimes important emails from Spam I do want things to stay around for a few weeks but the accumulation is a bit much. I have tried deleting large blocks…

                                    • WHY IS @AOL.COM added at the end of my new blocked email addresses???

                                      Why does every email address I put into my blocked mail add @aol.com to the end??? What software did you deploy today that was not tested properly 12/12/18 I put the entire email address in, so there is no need to add this, it is already a valid email address.
