  2. Glad your recent font enlargement of highlighted email addresses is gone today!

    Thank you for getting rid of the enlarged font when email addresses were highlighted. It was extremely annoying. It was so awful that I considered canceling AOL and just using Google or Safari to read my mail.

  3. email in aol desktop gold

    I like the latest build of aol desktop gold. A lot of fixes in place. The software is a lot more better than before. AOL doesn't seem to crash as much

    A big thank you to the IT department.

    However, I know that there is still work to be done and I'm sure that aol desktop gold still needs work.

    The email is still not quite as smooth as it could be. I have both a gmail and yahoo email account and both of those email accounts are very smooth when switching from new to old to sent email.

  4. Filter out bogus "AOL" contacts

    AOL should be able to filter out bogus emails purportedly from them, and not send them out to recipients.

  6. email address book

    You used to list email addresses by alphabetical name and now you list them chronologically. That makes an address hard to find!

  11. Why did you remove the ability to see the photos in a sent message?

    Before your update, the emails stored in the Sent folder had their photos that were embedded in the correct spot. Now they are just squares. Why the change? I am often asked to send another copy of a sent message with the photos and now it is much more difficult to do.

  13. Favorites Quick Find Field

    As soon as you type a character in the the Favorites Quick Find field, an "X" appears in the right-most position. This allows for a quick clearing of the field when your search is finished. This feature is also part of the Search field of Feedback where I am typing now.

    Please add this feature to the mail Quick Find field.

  14. Add the Attachments Listing to Email Print Outs in AOLGold, like it is in the Browser Email Print Out Feature

    Print out of Email with Attachments, from Browser Access, gives me a listing of the Attachments on the print out.
    Print out of Same Email, from AOL Desktop Gold, does NOT give me the same feature. I cannot see a list of the attachments.
    Please add a feature to AOL Gold, so that my print outs includes a listing of all the attachments sent.

  18. The new Star on the right side of the screen that shows up when you are reading an email, prevents you from accessing the bottom of emails.

    please get rid of the star on the right side of the screen when you are reading emails. It prevents you from seeing the bottom of the email and saving it, deleting it etc. It is very annoying!

  19. Buttons at bottom of each piece of e-mail -- SAVE, MARK UNREAD, or DELETE -- have become obscured by AOL upgrade.

    Since the recent upgrade, the size of opened e-mails is slightly larger. This obscures the SAVED, MARK UNREAD, OR DELETE buttons at the bottom of each piece of mail. I have to use a work-around -- an extra step or 2, which is time-consuming -- to designate how each piece of mail should be handled (SAVE, MARK UNREAD, OR DELETE). I agree with other users that the new orange highlighting of mail is, at best, unnecessary and, at worst, annoying. The ineptitude of AOL never ceases to amaze.

  20. setting bcc, cc etc to send email

    sending mail bcc , cc etc you have to go the bottom of the screen for each one. The old way was faster it was right by the name. Please reinstate the old way or make us able to reinstate it using settings.
