    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

  6. 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.

    Sent to "Help" report a bug @ AOL;

    I see that AOL Desktop Gold has still not fixed the problem of reported SPAM addresses added to the "Blocked" list that keep getting deleted so entire process must be repeated. from 190+ last night to 17 this evening, and the computer was not shut down during this period, just was "logged" out. 1st few times I reported this, someone in "Tech" wrote back that they were trying to figure out what was going on. Now, no replies even tho problem is ongoing. Does "Desktop" even care???

  9. Submitting Bug Reports are Useless

    .I have 2 computers with the same AOL problem involving Premium Security. Bugs have been submitted 7 days ago and still not fixed.

    I have been an AOL paying customer for over 18 years and this is what I can tell you. Years ago, when a problem was reported it was fixed during a phone call. Or, it was escalated with a commitment to respond within 24 hours.

    Now we have the following:

    1. The phone call- in tech always wants to reinstall AOL, usually without positive results
    2. The next step is for the customer to submit a Bug. The phone…

  11. AOL desktop gold update option

    AOL desktop gold updates should have an option for either automatic or manual. Many software vendors do this.

  12. Tech help needs help!

    I tried to install a paid version of Gold on a new hard drive. One tech called me and we installed a program to let her do the install. She couldn't and then told me it was due to over 1000 viruses on my computer. Another called me back and tried to get me to pay Microsoft $99 to repair my computer. I'm a tech myself. So I found a link and installed the Gold software myself. I've been with AOL since they were out on floppy for dial-up. Bad advice is not what your Tech people should be putting…

  14. Desktop Beta - Subscription Required

    In the past, Beta clients for AOL Desktop could create a separate AOL account to use for the sole purpose of software testing by clicking the link in the AOL Desktop Beta FAQ page. At present, that link does not work because it leads to the subdomain 'i.aol.com' which no longer resolves. In addition, when I create a 'free' account to test with, I receive a 'Subscription Required' notice upon attempting to sign in to the Desktop client. This makes sense, but I don't want to use my paid subscriber account for the purpose of Beta testing - I would…

  15. McAfee

    I am tired of calling the McAfee support and going through the same fixes that do not work. I have been getting notifications that my free McAfee for multi devices is expiring. I have talked to the McAfee support now at least 3 times and they have done the same fix each time. But weeks later I get the "about to expire" notice. Clearly you cannot fix the problem which says a lot about AOL's lack of expertise. Tired of paying over $30 a months for benefits that do not work. Fix it now or I leave AOL. **@aol.com. I…
