  1. 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. 

  2. Save me time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm using AOL desktop Gold
    once I decide to put an email into a folder
    I need to take it there quickly,
    Presently I have to scroll all the way to the s's to find the folder.
    I need a faster way to find the folder to save it in that folder I need.
    Scrolling takes me 45 seconds to get there.
    please put another way for me to get to that folder that wanted to save the email in.

  3. Remove Twitter Link from Help Menu

    I noticed that in all current builds of ADG, on the main 'Help' menu, there is a link to AOL Desktop on Twitter. The link leads to a profile that doesn't exist. I would recommend one of the following fixes: Either remove the link from the Help menu -or- Rename the link to reflect Twitter's rebrand as "X" and have the link go to a profile that exists. Dead links look bad, so just wanted to let the team know I found this. Thanks in advance.

  7. Why is mail going directly to Recently Deleted instead of the Spam folder? I will decide what is spam and what isn't.

    This changed in the past couple of days. I would check my Spam folder and decide from there if it is spam. Now I have to check the Recently Deleted folder to see what went there. How do I go back to the previous way?

  8. Update the System Requirements on the beta page.

    I remember when 11.0 first started, Windows Vista was supported and was there on the System Reqs. Then, it disappeared the moment Vista went out of support in April 2017. Yet, I still see Win 7 and 8.x on there and never saw Win 11. Please update. 7/8.x has been out of support since Jan of last year (2023). :) that’s all.

  15. Welcome Screen changes

    Here's an idea.....change the Welcome Screen back to the way it was two days ago.......you know when the pictures were not huge and the print small. Change is not always good.

  19. search window upgrade

    I am suggesting to your Technicians to return the search window as it was before you upgraded AOL SEARCH. It was much easier to do a google search when looking for a particular subject. THE SEARCH BUTTON IN THE ADDRESS BAR IS TOO SMALL.
