  1. How Do I control spam ... a button that says this is not spam is NOT helpful... we need a button that says THIS IS SPAM ... Thank you

    We need a button that says THIS IS SPAM ... not one that confirms I want to keep this sender in my list

  2. Increase tech knowledge/level for Help Desk

    There ought to be a way for Tech Assistant on a call to refer a problem to a certified webmaster. We experienced a problem whereby the email auto-complete for an address would ONLY print BOTH the Contact Name and the Email address. This made it impossible to send certain group messages when I only wanted folks to see email addresses, not names. The telephone tech assistant did all she could AND received NO HELP from whoever the Level One person was. You really need to enable a referral (for a subsequent call, if necessary) so that some resolution can be…

  3. Give local news on AOL Homepage Where It Says Local News

    Ever since you got Yahoo to do your Local News on AOL Home Page I am NOT getting local news. You used to use a local newspaper or TV station for local News but today for instance I got Ohio News. Other days it is news for other parts of the United States,. I know Verizon now owns AOL and Yahoo but Yahoo is NOT giving LOCAL NEWS. I have written to you earlier about this but still getting news that is NOT LOCAL. Please correct this or get rid of LOCAL NEWS part of news page.

  7. You sent out messages that might as well have been in a foreign language. I guess I will have to see what happens at the end of October.

    We're not all Computer savy. I can drive my car, but I can't begin to understand how to change oil, sparkplugs, brake fluid, etc. Think about it! I've stayed with AOL since the 90's, and have even paid for access all these years, even though I've been told by others I'm wasting my money. I've paid thinking you would take care of changes etc.

  9. Explain choices provided by AOL to assist customers "problem solve" an issue.

    I received an email informing me that my email may need authenticating. For those of us who don't understand what that means, it would be helpful for AOL to provide some selections or drop downs that I can select for an explanation or clarification of what I need to do. It doesn't help to offer me choices if I don't understand which choice (potential remedy) is applicable to my specific issue. Although I understand the challenges that COVIG19 presents, it is irresponsible for AOL not to respond to phone calls, emails, or Chat, when you offer these features as a…

  11. Your app ***

    I have had this account since aol was founded. Now I am considering moving to another provider. This decision, on your part, is absurd and problematic. I already get laughed at for maintaining my aol account, so your decision is to make it worse?

  15. Allow for bulk deletion of old emails such as by dates, year or number

    Many of us have lots of old emails in our inbox (eg 20,000) . There needs to be a method of clearing out old emails either by year or by a date range . It is too tedious to delete old emails one at a time

  18. Do you ever think it would be possible to actually get to a website when searching instead of going page to page to page.

    Open up a particular website and you have 10 other site possibilities show up on the next page. Open one of those and your have more websites. Open one of those and you have more. You just never get to any usable website. You could easily spend an hour or more opening website after website that just yields more pages of websites.
    It is truly an exhausting experience trying to get anywhere.

  20. Allow the "From" button work to alphabetize emails

    I was always able to keep my emails down to a manageable number because it was easy to delete emails once they are alphabetized. Now the From button does nothing.
