  2. I would LOVE to see a new added catagory for email

    Now we have INBOX & SPAM that AOL places incoming emails.

    I would very much appreciate, and use a new one of (say) SUBSCRIPTIONS.

    I let many of my subscriptions go to the SPAM folder, and friends & family emails go to the INBOX. (I've noted that AOL 'remembers' which go where)
    The problem: One sender of a subscribed newsletter dropped me claiming I wasn't reading the newsletter, I WAS, but it was in SPAM and I'm wondering if they get notified when I labeled it SPAM to move them from the INBOX

    GMAIL, as you may know, has MANY…

  4. What do I have to pay in fee to get 36,678 incoming mails out of my computer

    My idea is to return to your old AOL mode hat keeps customer on your site. At the rate you are going - and I have been with you 1993 (count the years!!) there will be one more leaving, if not many more. Wake up your customer service has gone down the drain.

  5. Read Mail Retained in New Folder after Refresh

    I have been seeing an anomaly where some read emails are retained in the New folder even after the folder is refreshed. This seems to have been addressed twice in recent Desktop Gold version releases:

    Version 11.0.2978: "HOT Fixed! - return to New folder with read mail, read mail still shown".
    Version 11.0.3001: "HOT Fixed! - returning directly to new mail folder after close, mail marked as read still shown"

    I just closed and opened Desktop and it updated from version 2984 to 3001 and the bug remains. (For some reason the version did not update to version 3012 released…

  6. No mail lists, or emails show when first loaded.

    Just a Heads-Up to AOL programmers/testers

    This only happened two days, yesterday & today. The next time I will send a Bug Report.
    Both times, AOL appeared to come up as expected, but none of the mail folders or emails displayed. Waiting didn't help. I'd never seen this happen before.

    Both times, I KILLED the AOL Gold process's and restarted AOL, On both restarts the email folders and expected email immediately showed up..

  11. signature

    AOL Desk top Gold should add more options for different Font signatures. AOL Desk top Gold only list a hand full of fonts to select. The Legacy AOL had a hundred fonts to choose from for your signature.

  16. Weird Keystroke action..

    When doing a SEARCH of emails -- When one letter is typed, the cursor jumps out of the search box, back to email list
    .

    So a search of, say, a 8 letter word, I have to reposition the cursor back to the search box to type the next letter, and AGAIN, cursor jumps out of the box

  17. Put a counter on the old mail folder

    The Old Mail folder needs a counter. Without opening the Old Mail folder, you don't know if there is mail lurking in there or not. A counter would save a couple of mouse clicks several times a day. Older people sometimes can't locate a message they've read, and then they find it in the Old Mail folder!

  18. Mailbox won't display *new* mail

    Why do I even have a "new" mail folder on AOL Desktop Gold, if I can't view only new mail when I open my inbox? If this is a new FEATURE, I don't like it! I'm paying for this service, and expect it to work at least as well as the mobile app!!
    note: before you suggest I refresh, open/close/exit and reload AOL, been there, done that!
