I really don’t like the way the app is set up for iPad or iPhone. I want to see the entire body of my mail. That side bar takes up nearly half my screen. It should not be locked in place.
Also this new version doesn’t let me sort. I really thought the ability to only see people I know vs everyone was what kept AOL a step above all other vendors. Now your just blanketed with it all even on the desktop version.
On the IPad/phone I have no control of my contacts. Have to go to desk top to add remove edit I can’t even check that the address is correct because it’s to small and no way to preview.
For all the money I’m paying I might as well go free on gmail or something. Very disappointed in the advancement it been more of a take away. Oh yes and I can’t even put my cute tags as my signature it doesn’t know how to save my pictures. Ugh😳🙀

Edited: I used to love this app


It seems that the issues have all been addressed during the last update so I am changing my review and upgrading from one star to five.

I have used this app for years and I suppose I took for granted that it simply did what it was supposed to do. It worked smoothly and allowed me to read my mail, mark items as unread, and separate it into folders. (I have simple email needs)
A few weeks ago it started occasionally freezing up. I updated my OS to 11 and then updated the app. This latest version barely opens at all and freezes up almost every time. Please fix it and I will change my review. For now, I can only give it one star.

Marked Spam is never put in my Spam folder...

Ol' Mac II Dude

...or if it is, why do I keep repeatedly getting Spam from the same sender? I’ve been an AOL member for 31 years, and if I really don’t want to keep getting Spam from the same sender, I’ve got to go to the AOL website, find the page to block Spam, and physically type in the address of the Spam sender!

Why is this so difficult, AOL? What good is it if a user marks an email as Spam if it’s never going to be handled as Spam? This is the most annoying thing no matter which means I have with accessing my email.

Otherwise, I like the App. Especially when I want to read an email in full screen where the text size is increases accordingly.
