  1. deleting mail contacts

    When you scan items in your address list (under mail in mailbox) from A to Z to clear out unwanted addresses, the curser shouldn't jump back to A after one deletion. It should move to the next name in the alphabet on the list so you can continue to survey the list, otherwise you have to go through the entire alphabet to find the spot where you'd been. Very time consuming.

  2. Two issues to take under advisement.

    Two issues to take under advisement. The verification process is very laborious, had to identify literally a hundred images to progress through the AOL system all to verify why my password was not being acknowledged. Of greater importance: Please tweak the Desktop Gold software to allow the customer to ADD ADDITIONAL FONTS on the drop down menu . As everyone is very sensitive to branding the feature on the previous iteration allowed us in marketing, graphic design to gear our email correspondence to the visual sensibilities of our clients and reflect our own corporate identity BETTER.and more accurately. Thank you.…

  3. As I scroll down to read e-mails, I often stray a bit and accidentally send my mail to the SPAM folder. Bigger margins please. Thanks.

    Please increase the margins to the right of the e-mail so that it is more difficult to accidentally select icons in close proximity.

  4. Voice Command for Email

    I hope that you would develop or add a feature in AOL Desktop Gold that let us hear the email or have an option to make AOL Desktop Gold read emails for us.

  5. Rapid flashing AOL ads and law suits

    I've got three emails open and my desktop email window. There are four, rapidly flashing ads driving me nuts and making me sick to my stomach, so that I can't work. Maybe you, AOL, don't care about that, but are you aware that, for someone with epilepsy, that type of rapid, flashing movement can cause a seizure? And perhaps a law suit? Do you actually believe that those ads sell anything? Maybe people click on them just to try to stop the movement, but if I could stop them long enough to read whose ads they are -- or when…

  7. DELETING

    Restore instant delete, Suddenly, you now have to confirm each and every delete. Total waste of time and really aggravating, especially if you have a number of items you want to delete. It's also unnecessary as if you delete something accidentally, you just go to 'recently deleted' and 'restore'.

  8. Fix the language

    It is bad enough that social media users are destroying our beautiful language, but for far too long we have had to listen this provider tell us "You've got mail." First of all, "You have mail." is proper, and doesn't need the "got which is so very overused today.

  9. friends sent to spam

    There is a problem in the SPAM procedure. Everyone I know who has AOL periodically finds their friends sent to SPAM. We spend days fishing them out and marking them This is Not SPAM, and then they finally go back to normal and another person gets marked SPAM. I have one friend who doesn't get the point that this is systemic, not individual, and she just spent 4 hours on the phone with a tech trying to get my emails to go back into New instead of SPAM.

  13. Email Export glitch: No way to export an AOL email address book to Constant Contact for bulk mailing service. Tech Zack tried even webmail.

    Bulk email export glitch. No way to export an AOL email address book group folder to Constant Contact for bulk mailing service. Your tech Zack tried multiple ways--including web mail through Microsoft Edge. No dice. I have pages to enter into an Excel spreadsheet format--one at a time. Ugh.

  14. AOL.s (VERIZON "OATH") is NOW "FULLY" controlling my AOL E-MAIL ... and you need to stop this **** "immediately"

    Now that you 'selectively censored' who I get my e-mail from - You need to restore my e-mail servive to what it was previously, and IMMEDIATELY ... or you'll have to answer to my Congress persons !!
    Btw, I'll actually (hand) WRITING to them on this "complaint" tommorrow .. because you already have too much control over my internet, and 'far over' and "above" your "TOS rules"

  17. why can't ADG have a "reformat" feature to reformat email received with text down the center ?

    sometimes i receive email that already has the text down the center of the page, sometimes character by character. other times , i'll send out an email and the recipient receives it the way i described. i've been told so many copies have been passed, that the margins are affected. I understand any other provider has a "reformat" tool. I can't find it. so why can't adg have a "reformat" tool????

  20. Please add click and drag for emails. I do not want to open or down load an email that might be a phish.

    Please add a feature to deal with possible phish emails. I do not want to open to forward to aol_phish nor do I want to down load the attachment so you can see what is being sent. I would like a feature like outlook has that allows the email to be attached without opening to another email.
