  2. Provide a search function for flagged mail

    When reading new mail I may flag some, intending to get back to them later. I need a way to search for flagged emails.

  3. fix email Sent folder. Now shows email address only, even though "show names" is checked

    Even though my mail settings have the checked box next to "Show sender names instead of email addresses in message lists" , Sent folder now only displays the email address of whom I sent to. This was not the case until about a week ago, when a couple of things broke in AOL email. To include a 2 year old calendar event from 2016 mysteriously popping up into this month in 2018. Looks like AOL did and upgrade or had to to a restore from backup on their mail server and something didn't go as planned.

  4. Auto Save Attachments

    Give the option to open or save attachments.. I hate that your webmail auto downloads attachments to my devices!! That should be my choice. It should open in either the reading pane of the email, or another window on the browser. NOT TO MY COMPUTER STORAGE. I have to use the email for work and it is truly a pain and inconvenience to have to download all of the attachments and then search for them and delete them!

  5. E-mails

    The new method for attaching addresses is not an improvement. One must now scroll the through all addresses alphabetically to locate an addressee. If the person's last name begins with a "W", you need to scroll through all addressees "A through V" to get to the "W's". You used to be able to highlight the "W" and then scroll to find your desired addressee. Much easier!

  9. Some of us still use land lines. Could you call to give a verification code so not to be locked out of aol?

    Could you call a land line with verification code. Some of us still have landlines. I don't want to get locked out because I can't get verification code. That would be a disaster.

  10. Seriously, change the interface.

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

  11. Send SMS message when foreign based browser accesses email account.

    Warn users that their email account is being accessed from a foreign country. You currently record such information and if the user goes to security they can see that it has happened. Send an SMS message when a new browser accesses an account.

  13. Add, Not Take Away = More Paying Customers

    How can you really expect ANYONE to like your service? You have continued to reduce and take away features that we once enjoyed! It never improves from the moment it starts. Instead, you reduce it and make it more difficult and lame. How does this make good customer support/service? This has been the problem of AOL since its inception. You still don't get it. Add features, don't take away! Follow Google!

  14. Adding profile picture setting for email receivers to know what the email sender looks like

    When people send an email it would be great for the receiver to see a picture of the person sending the email, just like the profile picture setting in Gmail. When an email receiever receives an aol email they see a blank photo representing the email senderl. Please look into fixing this issue to be more streamlined like your competitor email services

  15. I really love this email, AOL. I've used it since high school and am now in graduate school. It is very easy to use.

    I really enjoy being able to change the theme of my email. It allows me to express how I'm feeling or my mood for that moment in time.

  16. I need a dark background. Have asked already 50x. Give us a night view at least if you do not allow back ground uploads.

    Please allow us to upload a background, your banner alone is a joke. Google and Yahoo allow you to do that. And if not give us a night view option. I hate a white boring channel. I have asked AOL 50x already. When will it happen?

  17. Listening to your subscribers

    You only annoy people if you run controversial ads, like those for Planned Parenthood, that people find morally offensive

  19. mark items as new even when read already

    On then main 'New Mail' page when I have read an email but choose to keep it as new I need to know it is going to do that, Therefore either put a flad/tag to show it is being kept as new or revert it to new i.e. shown in bold.
    Thanks
