When is AOL going to STOP flooding the site with paid advertising and start doing something to make using the site less cumbersome to navigate?? I've noticed it takes longer now than ever before to get to and go through emails because of all the advertising that gets down loaded at the same time you are trying to open your emails. The real goal is for you to click on the advertising or view it. I believe AOL is deliberately slowing down the time it takes to open each individual email so that each user will spend time looking at the ads which do nothing other than distract a user from viewing his/her emails. Who wants to PAY AOL for not seeing these ads?? Not me! Oath will continue to lose AOL and Yahoo customers until Verizon decides to dump both of them just like Time Warner did when it dumped AOL and sold it to Verizon! Verizon, Oath, will find out how much its customers like what they are doing as they lose them by the thousands every month.
AOL's forced advertising which is embedded in our email accounts is destroying the access and time it takes to access our emails! AOL is nothing but an Advertising pit!
STOP the advertising within my email list!
AOL has forced ads into my list of emails taking up space in the upper right corner of the screen with no apparent way to remove it from the screen! I'm so sick of dealing with this ****!
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.
Its really cool now that AOL has turned off SPAM FILTERING! AOL shoves all that advertising down our throats and decides to turn OFF the SPAM FILTER!
Why do you think AOL has stopped the customization of Spam Settings? I believe because they are trying to force you and the rest of us to pay them for Spam Controls. The trend with AOL is all about monetization of the site including making its users pay more for using it! Trust me when I say, AOL is out to make its users pay for more services!!
Why did AOL turn "off" spam filtering when it was working to stop spam emails from being delivered to my account? I'm getting so many spam messages a day now that it has become a pain ********** to delete them. My guess is that AOL will soon be requiring all of its users to pay AOL to filter out spam messages based on the new User Agreement I read. AOL is trying monetize the all aspects of using AOL's site.
Why has AOL allowed spam and junk mail to stop being filtered. I'm getting tons of **** from AOL that I didn't used to get. This is probably aonter one of AOL's ways a getting its users to PAY for filtering!
It now takes two extra clicks to get my email list to open. Why is that AOL?? Is it because AOL wants to shove down our throats so much more advertising and they want to make sure we see it?...
By continually using the Not Spam button, you are training your spam filter and our systems to recognize important emails. Additionally, if you are using an email application, like Outlook, Mac Mail, Windows Mail, or the mail app on your mobile device, please check the incoming mail filters in the application’s settings, and change the filters, so that all new emails are kept in the Inbox.
In order to block incoming emails from an entire domain, go to mail.aol.com – Options – Mail Settings – Spam Settings – and add the domain name (e.g. @example.com) inside the “Block Mail From Addresses I Specify” field, click the plus button, then Save Settings.
For all those complaining about disabling/turning off the Spam Filter, remember that AOL has moved to a system that monetizes its services, so don't be surprised if you soon see you can activate AOL's spam filer....if you want to PAY for it!
