  2. away message text format does not allow spaces nor enter

    When typing an "away message" it does not allow spaces nor enter at the end of a sentance. It appears as if it is a run on sentance

  3. 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.

  4. I can not forward with these type of attachments - 69.9 KB image002.png or image001.png (6.6KB) also winmail.dat (111.4KB)

    we should be able to forward anything that we can receive, We pay for AOL and almost no one does that and they have better capabilities on free e-mail accounts such as outlook, gmail, yahoo etc

  5. The ability to mark emails with a color.

    If I could mark some of my emails with a color, they would be easier to locate and would also remind me about important emails. This color would go all the way across the strip describing the email ( Date, From, Subject ) so it would stand out. Basic colors could be Red for important. Yellow for something to be aware of. Green for a good one. Or you could make up your own color scheme.

  8. Any chance we'll get back the ability to hit Ctrl and Enter and have it Send our emails?

    AOL used to allow us to use our keyboard to Send an email by simply holding down the Ctrl key and hitting the Enter key.

    Any chance they can add that back again. It should be a very simple macro command.

  13. SPOOF Email

    Getting spoof emails saying it's from my email address to my email address about an AOL Calendar reminder that is not showing on my AOL calendar (calendar.aol.com) It started happening last 2019. Collected more than 9000 about this in my specific folder Tried to create a filter so that all emails from this sender will go directly to my specific folder but now i am getting them on the inbox.
    I also see emails from the Sent folder which iI did not send. It shows that I sent out emails from Me to Me.
    Every time I click the link…

    I am very upset that the feature under send email has been removed. You cannot select save on my pc. This feature has been removed. I have been using AOL and this feature for over 30 years and this is a big inconvenience. This feature needs to be restored. Thanks

  15. The "Save Window SIze and Position" for the Mailbox window should also save the column widths.

    The "Save Window Size and Position" should also save the column widths in the Mailbox window. Every time I select "Read" to open the Mailbox, I have to make the "My Mail Folders" column wider to fit all my folder names, and I have to make the "From" column wider to see more of the email addresses. Other apps and programs do this without the user even asking to save them. They just keep the widths the same as they were left when last used.
