AOL Help: Delete Folders for AOL Email on the Web

Personalise folders for AOL Email on the Web by deleting the ones you no longer need.

To delete a folder and all its contents:
1. In the Email window at the bottom of the folder list, click the Edit Folders button. The Edit Folders window opens.
2. Click the Delete Folder button next to the folder you would like to delete. A pop-up window asks if you want to permanently delete this folder and all of its contents.
3. Click Delete to delete the folder.

The folder is removed from the Folder List and all of its messages are deleted.


  • You can delete a personal folder, but you cannot delete any of the system-generated folders.
  • When you delete a folder, the contents are discarded immediately.
