        How do I eliminate folders in AOL mail that I no longer want or need? They're taking up cyberspace and literal space in AOL.

        Can anyone answer the original question -- how do you delete an empty folder? Right clicking on it does not work because delete is not an option on that drop down menu. Anyone?

        I too am finding it rather frustrating not having the ability to create sub folders in AOL Mail, will this feature ever be available???

        What is the point of this? Questions get asked, but never answered. I need to delete mail folders. Right click doesn't give me the option (it used to)

        OMG. I was just FORCED to AOL Mail by Verizon. Seriously, we can't create subfolders, and people have been been asking for 3 years? I was also just told (thanks live chat) that 6 years of emails in folders will be recovered - in ONE folder. And i can then manually recreate my 57 sub folders and move the thousands of emails myself. To my "are you kidding" I received a "This is the procedure madam". 10 days in to a forced AOL mail account, NOT HAPPY. And yes I did transfer by the date required. But apparently they can't recover folders. Who can't recover folders? Embarrassing and problematic.

        Can someone tell me how to delete a folder? I am using aol 9.7 I believe. When I click on the folder there is no delete option.

        I would love to see and beadle to use subfolders in aol.mail. This is something that would be very popular among aol users.

        AOL - I see a lot of people want the ability to create subfolders (including me) - please respond - is there a plan to allow that to happen??

        Through necessity I am having to use AOL through the web now as changing computers, but am at a loss that in 2014 you can't create a sub folder. Will have to think again or set up another account elsewhere!
