AOL is becoming more political, favoring the left. It should remain neutral in its stories. as It is offensive to have leftist reporting and stories that are reported as news, that are a not so subtle attempt to influence readers to not support a duly elected president and those companies and individual who support him. This did not occur in the previous administration and should not be happening in this one. Why would AOL wish to alienate its conservative customers?
I would also like to have this back; unfortunately, I need to migrate certain business related email out of this account; and instead of emailing all 50 people per day, it would be better if I could forward these to my business related email (along with a forwarding message to the sender). I think it's very sad this feature was removed
Due to recent adjustments to the AOL Mail platform, the Spam Settings customization, are no longer available for all accounts. We apologize for the inconvenience. In order to block a specific sender, go to Options – Mail Settings – Spam Settings and add the email addresses in the box below “Block Mail from Addresses I Specify”, then click Save Settings at the bottom, and in case you receive unwanted emails in the Inbox, mark them as Spam.
EVERY day I delete the same spam, same email addresses... WHY!!!!??? I delete, I'm supposed to stop getting the spam. FIX IT
I copy and paste these ***** email addresses but it won't accept and then show cannot have the gibberish icons...which it does not. I am sick and tired of getting these ***** emails and I am doing what I am supposed to do to block these terds.
AOL is in bed with the devil. I wonder how much money they make out of allowing spam messages to bombard my account.
I contracted with a bulk marketer and emailer back in 2010 for a life insurance product that I had exclusive rights to as a multi state licensed MGA. It was costly and every day I got dispositions of what happened with every email sent out. Read, spam folder, unread, trashed, etc. They cleaned the list accordingly on a regular basis. I am now getting more spam in my AOL email accounts than I have ever seen in the past. If these bulk mailers keep dispositions of what they send out they would see 99 % of what they send be goes in the spam folder and is trashed. I would not waste my time spamming me. AOL is passing the buck to their subscribers. If you suspect something is spam move it to your spam folder. If these spammers have an ounce of brains they will see their junk that you are not interested in is being trashed on a regular basis. AOL should bring back their old spam filters. I suppose they think cutting IT people monitoring their email servers helps their bottom line. In the end they just lose long time AOL subscribers to another email provider.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, we’ll send it over to the Product Team and hope to have it implemented in the future.
Long-time AOL user. Please return the spam settings options to the way they used to be. Having to enter all the spam addresses that I want blocked is ludricous when it amounts to at least a hundred per day. Seriously, AOL. Is this how you treat your customers. Look like it's time to move on to another email provider. You lose.
Please FIX the SPAM ISSUE. I want to block emails from people I don't know!!
Return the filter list that allows only specific emails. The new change caused all of the unwanted spam mail back into my inbox while moving the mail I do want into the spam box. if this continues then I may just end up stop using aol mail entirely.
I recently read that that may be what you want to occur. To: Lose your paying customers. I'm one who knws that I don't have to pay aol, but have been doing so faithfully for over 30 years. It's fee money to you.
I will stop using aol mail if you do not immediately return to my being able to use the filter where only email in my address book comes into my inbox.
AOL--- What the *** are you doing by removing that option?
Like others have posted: I've had AOL for well over 22 years! Unless they bring back the ability to allow emails only from people you choose, and put back the list I've built up over 22 years I will close my account down and go with someone who does.
I only want to receive email to my Inbox that is in my Address Book.
FIX IT NOW.
I completely agree with this request. I do not want any mail blocked. And on the wild chance that someday I do want mail blocked, I want to tell you what to block... I do not want you to block mail using whatever screwy algorithm you've concocted. You currently send very important emails into my spam folder against my wishes.
I use Outlook as I e-mail client. I have my own filters and spam setting on Outlook that keep unwanted e-mail from my in box. Recently I discovered that AOL was sending valid e-mails to the AOL spam folder.
I want the option to turn it off completely
Way too much spam every day.......... stop it!
