  1. import is not working

    AOL didn't work after a system restore. aoL reinstalled. Tool bar, preferences and mail stored on my PC missing. Before the reinstall, the appdata\local\aoldesktopdata\db file was saved to the desktop.

  3. mail

    I do not like the new version of email started in July 2020. When I click read, the email comes up blank.I close it, click read again and it comes up with the contents. I then have to go to top of email and click "allow xxxx" to be able to open anything in that email. More steps and nothing is improved, please go back to the way it was.

  4. Mark emails as being read within your file structure after you actually open them up and read them!

    When I see an email in my Inbox, and move it to an email folder of some kind, then click on and open up the email to read it, and then back out - the email still stays bold, without the red "checkmark" on it, and there is NO indication that it has been read. The system always worked the way I just described, but changed today (7/15/20) and no longer works the way it has for years. Whenever one clicks on a "bolded" new email to read it, it should always change state and become unbolded so that one…

  9. "Mange folders" is not working

    Manage Folders is not working. I have attempted to delete some older ones and tried adding new ones to no avail. Other options such as "move folder" do not work either.

  10. Mail and mailbox slow to load

    Last update has broken the mailbox. Messages in folders are extremely laggy - slow to load, load out of order and then reload, deleting messages is slow - everything was working great and now it's a mess.

    The spam folder has had an issue for awhile. Clicking on "this is not spam" causes the message to disappear completely. It does not get transferred to the inbox.

  11. email out

    Email is not working. They say customer support is available to paid subscribers 25/7. I call & get no answer. They say chat is not available due to corona. What about social distance requirements would be a problem with having a chat representative available. It's just an excuse for AOL's terrible service. Why am I paying $18/mo for AOL? Guess I'm stupid, but no more. Time to cancel after 35 years.

    Is the constant sign-in on my iphone AOL app being checked out. Is this the reason when I am asked to get an email confirmation code or email confirmation response is not going through? I couldn't e-file because of the inability to receive a confirmation code.

  14. Emails take forever to receive. I will have someone tell me they just sent me an email and it takes maybe an hour or more to get it.

    Emails take forever to receive. I will have someone tell me they just sent me an email but I might not receive it for hours. And I'm not getting emails from people that are in my address book or replies to emails I have sent to them. WTF is up with AOL. Ever since net neutrality was blown out of the water, the service has deteriorated completely and we pay for it.

  19. Over 50 people reported they cannot put their signature at end of E Mails!

    How do you get AOL GOLD to PRINT your signature at bottom of E Mails? I have a "saved signature" and did all the right steps, but HOW do you get that signature to print out on the E Mails. Many people have written in on this...that AOL Gold is lacking the ability to do this!
    HOW DO YOU DO IT ???

  20. r

    When I log on, all my emails are gone. Yesterday a message from AOL told me steps to get them back.....I HAD to include my mobile number. WHY?? Within hours I started receiving phone calls and the caller ID showed MY name and MY mobile phone number. In other words I was calling myself. This had NEVER happened before I had to post it on your website. WHY?? You should act on all the messages you get about how frustrating AOL GOLD is. I have paid for AOL for so many years...and was pleased with it UNTIL you came up…
