  2. Icons interfering with my email titles (garbage can, read & recycle). I need to hover over title and read. Interfering with my business.

    Horrible, icons slowing my business down. Why are these here?? If you need to update the product don't do things that are slowing people down. This is idiotic.

  3. AOL desktop gold update option

    AOL desktop gold updates should have an option for either automatic or manual. Many software vendors do this.

  4. When you continue demonizing Trump, you are also demonizing the other half of all voters of the USA-- your customers, stupid!!

    Would you AOL editors, mind slanting your EVERY article a little more to the RIGHT, just to give your customers more comprehensive knowledge?

  5. The COMPOSE button starts an email. I go to the "To" field and type a name (for example Paul) that's in my contact list. But it isn't found

    I click COMPOSE, then move the mouse to the "To" field and type a name (for example Chuck) that's in my address book. But the system doesn't find it because that name is not in the actual email address (continuing the example the contact list says "Chuck Kollars" ckollars9@yahoo.com). How can I get the address search to look at actual names too, not just the email addresses?

  9. Search boxes

    I found a tiny little red box upper right corner that says 'Search".. I used that and what I search for works.. Why is this big search box on the opening page? No need for it as it won't work.

  10. saving saved messages on AOL on a usb stick from relatives passed away

    I have many messages where family has sent me jokes and messages of love and caring on my saved mail area. I'd like to save them on USB sticks in case AOL stops or won't save messages for us any more. this way my loved ones care and affection and memories won't be gone forever. Can you folks add that link to save them on A USB or disk option?

  11. Tired of seeing Trump

    In case you haven't noticed, Trump LOST the election. He is NO LONGER President of the United States. The Olympics are on, Covid-19 infections are rising significantly in many States. Can't you find REAL news articles to put on the Welcome pages? I am tired of seeing his face every time I open AOL.

  13. Don't see the one that is my concern

    For 25 years that I have been with AOL when sending an out going e mail to a new address, this new address would automatically be added to my address book. This seams to have been changed to now one has to add any new customers to the Mailing Manually. This is not in the best interest of your 20 Million customers. Please change this back to the way it has been for 25 years. Thanks

  15. Sloppy Service

    I'm certain this will be ignored, but lately AOL has become one major pain in the butt, First there is the delay is getting on after log one. Then, and the worst, is having to wait 30 seconds (& that is not a guess-that was timed.) Then, if lucky or patient enough for get on AOL, there is that "OOPS" page that comes from out of the blue. I've done 30 yrs with AOL , but that will come to an end. NOW, ISN'T THAT A GREAT IDEA!!!!!

  16. like rise in crime, attacks on police etc. You are not journalists you are socialist advocates

    Stop attacking Trump long enough to attack the antiAmerican leftists trying to destroy the nation, from defunding the police to glorifying ANTIFA and BLM you are a sorry pathetic bunch of pinko activists!!

  18. SPAM

    WHY do I get so much garbage spam. The emails that they originate from don't even exist. Most say unknown sender. I get disgusting emails that are ****, etc. The old AOL had better controls, never got these.
    The old AOL had stationery for your emails, pictures, etc. I'm switching to gmail. They screen spam. AND YES, I have every spam control in use.

  19. Superfluous Unwanted Background

    Here we go again! The headline touted Judi Dench's unusual health condition but before I could get to it I had to go through a whole bunch of background stuff from her childhood on up through her first job to her first acting job . . . It's frustrating and I really am tired of this kind of bull ******.

  20. Unable to make changes to address cards and SAVE!

    At my last experience with the AOL Gold techs I was unable to make changes to address cards and save. After trying several different things the tech (can't remember his name) suggested we report a BUG, which he did. About a week later I happened to think about it and tried changing several address cards then save the changes, IT WORKED!

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
