  1. Bring back mail download decompress option.

    Bring back the Mail Download option of decompress YES/NO. By automatically decompressing your loose the file name of the original compressed file. This prohibits business tracking of the original transmitted file in its zipped/compressed file name and format.

    When saving an e mail into a folder, under prior versions, clicking the first letter for the desired folder took me to the location of the folder. Now, I have to do so manually. You should go back to the prior versions. It is simply easier to save or move files under the old versions of AOL.

  3. Posting comments on AOL articles... Mouseover "like" count is now ridiculous!

    AOL responds to the feedback I posted with telling me how the new hover feature works. If they would have read my comment, they would have realized, I understand its function but hate it.

    Are you kidding me AOL? I told you about my experience. Did you even check out to see how annoying it is? Then you close the feedback so no one else can comment on it because you know 90+% of the feeback you are getting is entirely negative on the product. Pathetic!!!

    One more bad tick mark for AOL! Lack of caring for customer experience.

    Original…

  5. Allow all AOL.com mail free users to use the beta software

    As of January 24, 2017, you all have cut off letting free AOL mail users to beta test, use, and contribute to this beta program. I had all four of my screen names registered and set up to use this service and so did my mom. Mom and I have both been involved with your service in some form or another since we first signed up as paid dial up subscribers back in 1993. Remember that? That was back when AOL ran on DOS from a 3 and half inch floppy drive. Now, look how far you all have progressed.…

  6. Please put Reject back on the aol chat rooms made by aol coustomer

  11. It's no longer possible to "break" the blue bar when replying to quoted text. Just one more way Gold is inferior to previous versions.

    It used to be possible to add replies between lines of quoted text by pressing Enter, and a new line would open with no blue bar, but that doesn't work anymore. There is also no option anymore to use <<(text)>> to quote text instead of the blue bar. It's the blue bar, or nothing. Every day I discover more reasons to ditch AOL Gold and use some other email program. The new Gold is inferior in so many ways to earlier versions.

  12. I am struggling with your new AOL Gold as items I used a lot, like being able to have the address book in my carousel tray to link quickly.

    I have been a loyal AOL member for over 20 years, much to the chagrin of many others telling me to get with it. I am struggling with your new AOL Gold as items I used a lot, like being able to have the address book at top of page to use link quickly as I use it a LOT in my work (real estate). Now I have to go to mail, and hit Address to get to the addresses. It takes more time now than before. I also like just having a "send" file, not have it clutter my…

  18. AOL USELESS TECH SUPPORT + DEAF TO SUBSCRIBERS WISHES !

    all tech support wants to blame problems with gold on users computers - standard scripted solutions , reload gold , restart , clear cache , clear cookies , reset location , + etc. - NONE work to cure problems that are built into gold by AOL by amateur + incompetent programmers - AOL does not listen or do anything about ALL the topics posted on this forum - ignorant of long time paid subscribers - AOL is thumbing their nose at all longtime loyal users !

  19. Maximize all, Print button, Personalized Welcome page.

    There should be an option to have all the windows like read, write, favorites, news to open up automatically in full screen when opening AOL.
    The print icon on the top right bar that appeared on each page was very useful -please put it back!
    I want to change the welcome page of AOL to Huffington post - Black Voices like it was before in order to open automatically when
    I started Aol but all I managed to do is to make it a homepage that I have to click on each time.
