  9. Add send only address option to Desktop Gold

    AOL WebMail has an option to set "send from" with addresses other than @aol.com.
    Since we are paying for Desktop Gold, we should be getting all the features of the free service.
    Please add this to Desktop Gold!

  10. Worthless "View" section in mail

    The "Views" feature is not helpful and automatically filters items that I do not wish to have in multiple places. The most critical issue is the "subscription" area which automatically saves the companies that contact me. The "unsubscribe" feature does not work, therefore I would have to contact each company individually which is very time consuming. I do not like the "View" feature for any function.

  12. AOL hopelessly radical left leaning...

    After being a subscriber for over 25 years, I must say I am utterly disappointed that AOL has become so LIBERAL...it is one thing to lean left, but to provide statistics based on their opinion is not worthy of them. I only wish they would get back to reporting facts and at least, try to stay neutral politically....half the country is conservative, some how they cannot accept that FACT!!

  13. You can improve AOL Gold by not changing how email is functioning without first asking the customer if they want that change.

    When some dumb IT person decides how emails can be better they either need to first take a survey or give those of us paying customers the option to have or not have the new function. Email being moved to "old" mail while you are reading it stinks and I want it to remain on the "new" mail page until I close it and can either delete it or move it. I don't want to have to go to "old" mail in order to do this.

  15. Don't expect anybody to read your news stories since you began truncating the headlines. Now no reason to click.

    Go back to the old style. Make the headlines complete sentences so readers know what the story is about. I'm not going to waste my time clicking on stories now that you've truncated the headlines.

  17. Allow us to delete "views" folders

    FRUSTRATING! The "views" folder group is useless to me, and it defaults to being open - taking up space right (6 lines) at the top of the folders list. Please allow us to DELETE this feature!

  20. Expand the number of spam addresses individual users can block

    As of now I have blocked 1000 different spam addresses which is the maximum number of addresses an AOL user can block. If AOL isn't going to stop this stuff from coming in then you need to give us unlimited ability to block it ourselves. While we are on the topic, how is it that the AOL email algorithm can't identify an email addresses like "375536982@digi.y4y.44zaiwang.com" and "Casinco@rompuy.assemblozov.jp.net" as spam and block it upfront?

    Many spammers use an email address only one time to send many spam messages. Adding every email address that you receive spam from is not the best method of reducing the amount of spam you receive.

    We suggest using the "Report as Spam" option when you encounter spam email message. This will send that message and all of the related information about the message (sender information etc.) to our Anti-Spam department where it will be analyzed by several pieces of information including the number of users who reported it as spam which will help us handle similar spam messages appropriately before they even reach your email box.
