  1. New icons added to e mails in the Mailbox on .3293

    These new icons in the Mailbox after every e mail is the WORST thing
    that AOL has ever done.
    You are forcing users to change the way they have always done things.
    You can only use the Delete button at the bottom if that e mail has been read and is highlighted.
    I read all my e mails first and then I used to go to the bottom and just click Delete, Delete, Delete. Doesn't work like that anymore.

  4. AOL GOLD Email should include the "SLIDESHOW" feature for photos.

    AOL GOLD email should include the "SLIDESHOW" feature for attached photo files. I receive Email photos regularly and would like the option to view them in other than thumbnail size and without having to save them. AOL GOLD does not have this function, but regular, Free AOL Mail does. In fact, the FREE AOL Email automatically opens any and all attached email photos in thumbnail format with the "SLIDESHOW" option to expand a photo to full screen. The only way to view attached photos with AOL GOLD Email is to SAVE them to a folder, which is cumbersome, messy and…

  5. Unhappy with new email update

    On 6/16/21 I saw a new light blue bar appear in my emails which moves up and down whenever I move. It's annoying and serves no purpose. I called AOL and was told it's a new update and they are receiving many calls from users complaining about it. I hate this new feature and want it eliminated.

  6. MY wife and I enlarged the font on our laptop to help us read some screens more easily and now the sign in box for AOL email is too narrow

    MY wife and I enlarged the font on our laptop to help us read some screens more easily and now the sign in box for AOL email is too narrow for our screen name to show completely. I chatted with a David P and he says that AOL can't do anything about this. I really find it hard to believe that we are the first people who want to enlarge the font on their computer, so I'm hoping some technician will be able to help us be enlarging the email sign in box to accommodate this for users.

  9. The default width of the emails window needs to increase

    I like the additions of the "Delete, Mark read, & report spam" on the select line. BUT, I keep having to widen the email window to avoid clicking one of those by mistake,

    Can you LEAVE the widith I set to be the default width?

  13. the new choices on mail insertion

    the new mail insertion choice LOOK is annoying and gets in the way of reading mail. Why do it? Bring back animated email inserts instead.
