  1. Restore the old spam settings. Now we only have one setting.

    First you took away stationery and vast choice of fonts, emojis, etc. Then you changed how mail is set up (from new, old, sent, spam, deleted mail to current style) and the Spam settings from numerous choices to only one (blocked). it seems the longer we continue to PAY for AOL Gold, the less we are getting for our money. I see by the Feedback that I'm far from alone in feeling AOL Gold does not seem "golden" to your PAYING customers.

    • NOT ONE POSITIVE COMMENT IN MANY MONTHS. HEY AOL? LISTENING?

      Absolutely right,new GOLD *** major wind. The old AOL program was much more stab;e and user friendly; This GOLD version is not only an embarrassment, but probably ripe candidate for a class-action lawsuit. AOL should stop charging customers for an inferior product that is rife with problems not found in previous versions. AOL? ARE YOU LISTENING? EL **** !

        • Give Us Options

          Let US decide if the new AOL page is OK or give us the option to switch back to the old page. No local news, weather is vague, Get rid of all the ads or stop charging us

          • aol is brain dead

            Has anyone working at AOL graduated high school? AOL is such a mish-mash of driblle and tripe and that it appears to be a training class for 8th grade wanna-be's......

            AOL ****. If the word "maybe" and "reportedly" were taken out of the English vocabulary, AOL would be out of business.

            • Comment Section

              Comment section doesn't show my Nickname automatically. I need to type it in manually. This problem doesn't happen before. I already talked to AOL's Technical Support and was advised to submit a feedback. My AOL Desktop Gold is updated.

              • Forget trying to fix AOL sounds and restore Windows OS media player. Simple.

                Dump your version of personalized sounds and restore the Windows Media Player. There are many sites from which all kinds of sounds may be downloaded and played. You have disabled this feature and forced us to consider your selections.

                • AOL gold welcome screen new version stinks. Half screens/icons on left NO Good.

                  The AOL Gold new welcome screen stinks. Half screens from the previous article or ad showing. Icons for maail and others on the left side. I liked it the old way without all the clutter and a picture (which was larger) of the article by itself. Stop changing things all the time.

                        • Spam Mail Deletion

                          I would suggest that recently deleted "Spam Mail" should go into the "Recently Deleted" folder the way previous versions (Blue) of AOL did for years. This would allow review prior to permanent deletion, esp. if the Spam Mail were deleted in error.
