How to Unblock Mail in AOL

By Michael Roennevig

AOL Mail allows you block specific email addresses or domain names from your inbox. This is a good way of avoiding junk mail your spam filter misses or emails from individuals or companies whose correspondence you do not wish to read. If you add an address or a domain name to your block list by mistake, or if you have a change of heart about a sender you've blocked, it's a straightforward procedure to reverse the process and allow blocked mail back into your inbox.

Step 1

Log into your AOL Mail account with your username and password.

Step 2

Click on the "Settings" link in the top right corner of the window.

Step 3

Select the "Spam settings" link in the left pane. You will be presented with a list of the email addresses and domain names you have added to your block list in the "Block mail from addresses I specify" under the "Sender filter" section.

Step 4

Highlight any addresses and domain names you want to remove from the list individually, and then press "Delete" on your keyboard.

Step 5

Click on "Save" in the top right corner of the window to save the changes you've made, and then click "Check mail" to return to your inbox.
