  1. spelling dictionary

    You "suggestions" as to how to fix the spelling dictionary don't work as there is no option under Mail for any spelling dictionary words. Yes, the words get underlined and you can right click and tell AOL to accept the word as spelled but in the next email, the same words get underlined as wrong again. Restore the Spelling Dictionary so that words we had to it STAY in it. Before we had to pay for AOL, it worked so much better. Now we PAY you and get far less than we used to. Please fix our Personal Spelling Dictionary…

  3. I have sent repeated bug reports on Feedback

    While you responded on Feedback, no one from AOL has reached out to address my issues: Is anyone going to contact me to resolve my issues?

    I have sent repeated bug reports and still have no resolution. I have contacted support, they went into my system and reinstalled the software but since the issue wasn’t resolved they advised to send a bug report. But the bug reports do NOTHING!! My issue is still here on the gold desktop software. I can't switch between new, old and sent mail tabs in aol gold desktop software without very long delays. Most of…

  7. emoji idea

    I've written this idea before and have not seen a response. On most devices that offer wmoji's, it does not close the window when you select the emoji. I often like to insert several at a time. Could you please leave the emoji box open until I'm finished selecting emoji's?

    Also, I would really be a good thing if when I select, "Mark as Unread" you would let the text go to bold again. This way I can see which emails I've marked to reply or deal with at a later date.

  9. You have ruined AOL with a very lousy email restructure. Where is my email Verizon????

    "New" AOL mail pages are garbage. I live in the busy physical REAL WORLD and don't have time. Be smart and bring back "old" email for those of us who still live in the physical world. Just plain stupid.

  10. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO USE READ RECEIPTS LIKE ALL OTHER PROVIDERS PROVIDE!!

    Why Doesn't AOL have available Read Receipts for emails we send??? I HAVE BEEN AN AOL CUSTOMER FOR 24 YEARS NOW!!!!!!!!!! People make fun of me that I still keep it! But it would mean that I change EVERY account I have linked to this email address, etc and it is a huge hassle to do so. PLEASE ENABLE THIS FEATURE!!!!!!!! IT WOULD GAIN AOL NEW CUSTOMERS.

  11. Why are the images now a "preview"? Now you have to down load them!

    Why didn't you leave the embedded images alone? Now they show as a preview (that I can't even see on my cell phone) and I have to download everything to see what it is! GO BACK TO EMBEDDED IMAGES!

  12. Can Music to an AOL email or AOL mail attachment that play when it is open by recipient

    To me, I think we need a way to Add Background Songs or music to email to play when the recipient opens his or her AOL email attachment note or letter. If it can be done AOL--Gold help desk live support just said cannot be done. I do not know how or if it can be done. But sure is a great idea. Thank you.
