    I have repeatedly put a block on the domain address @robust-seat-199520.appspot.com. No matter what I do or what tricks I try to block it it continues to send filth every day and comes through. Your blocks do not work! Why can't we go back to receiving mail only from those in our contacts list and stop the disgusting garbage that gets through to our mail boxes?

    SInce AOl is no longer going to let us blaacok e-mail, junk etc, the wy it used to when we originally started using aol I have decided to go to anohter carrier like g-MAil or yahoo. Better service and free and we can block junk from coming through

    You dropped a lot of controls on receiving mail and now we have little control over who can send things to us. Please put back the blocks on mail; especailly the one for receiving mail only from those in my address book. It really helped eliminate spam which often contains viruses and worms.

    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.

    You have made it immpossible to stay ahead of the spam by taking away the blocks you had. How about not putting a limit on how much spam we can block so as to allow us to keep it out? And it would be very helpful if you would make it possible to block spam from the inbox as we do by just clicking "spam". Have a button to click "block" so we can get it done quickly without going blind trying to read the stupid addresses in the first place. No one wants spam! Give us a break!

    Give us a fighting chance of blocking spam by getting rid of the white on gray print in addresses and enlarging the size of print on their e-mail addrsses so we can read the letters and put them in the blocks. And while you're at it, how about sending the spam straight to the garbage. It has already been designated as spam; so obviously we don't want it wheter in a spam folder or the trash. Junk is junk...we don't want it! Bring back the contacts only block...it worked. And allow us to change our addresses without having to close out accounts so we can avoid the sapm in the first place.

    Since we have to do AOLs job of blocking addresses how about making it a little easier for us? It would help if addresses were large enough to read and not white on grey. Make the whole address show up or stay on long enough when you hover over them to read. Since you are able to filter them into a spam filter why don't you just block them completly once they have been identified as spam? NO ONE WANTS SPAM, in or out of a spam folder. I have blocked in excess of 450 domains in the last 6 weeks and yet they continue to come. Why not go back to being able to ALLOW ONLY options. Everyone was very happy with those wheter it was allow only contacts or allow only certain domains or addresses. If AOL wants to stay in business they better start listening to their customerss needs and wants, especially since you are no longer free. It seems strange to me that you are able to block 80 to 90% of spam FOR A PRICE yet cannot stop it for regular paying customers. Are you selling our addresses in order to charge us to stop spam?
