Favorites are not part of the AOL app. Open Faves on your mobile browser at aol.com/favorites, and on your desktop at aol.com (the Heart icon at the top of the AOL.com homepage). You can add the Faves bookmarklet to a desktop browser at http://www.aol.com/favorites/.

Why does my mailbox say 'New Mail' and 'Old Mail'?

If you see "New Mail" and "Old Mail" when you're viewing your mail folders in the AOL app, it means that you're using the New/Old mailbox style (or at some point you decided to use this style).

This mailbox style separates your messages into mail that you've read (Old Mail) and mail that you haven't read, or have marked as Unread (New Mail).

If you'd prefer to see all your mail - read and unread - in one place, you can switch to the Unified Inbox style. The Unified Inbox displays all your mail in one inbox and not in separate New Mail and Old Mail folders. Emails in the Unified Inbox are listed by date with the latest messages at the top.

To switch to the Unified Inbox:

1. Click here.

2. On the page that shows up, at the bottom, click Switch to Inbox.

3. In the AOL app, sign out of your account and then sign back in.

The next time you sign in, instead of seeing New Mail and Old Mail, you'll see Inbox, which will have all your read and unread messages.

How do I provide feedback?

Have something to say? We want to hear it! We love hearing from people who use AOL Mail. To send feedback, in the upper left, click the menu button.

In the menu, in the upper right, tap the gear wheel icon.

Under the Support section, tap Send Feedback.
