  1. write mail

    It would be convenient when a user has multiple accounts /user names if the "write mail" screen would display the user name currently logged in. Example:
    "Write mail from User1234"

            • Stupid ads

              I still think it is stupid to have picture captions that have to be activated so a damned ad can play where the caption should (used to) be, along the side of the photo. As it is now, if the caption button is activated, part of the photo is lost. STUPID!

                    • allow spelling changes within spell check.

                      after generating an email, one uses aol spell check and comes across a misspelled word-
                      if the correct word is not in the suggested list, one must close spell check and manually correct the spelling in the email.
                      spell check should allow for changes to be made dynamically in the box where the misspelled word shows up.

                          Suggesting that a possible selection in settings to disable the welcome screen appearing when signing in. I have defaulted to go directly to mail, however, there remains a default to the welcome screen in backdrop. This is rather annoying as I can still see it and my attention is then directed to the welcome screen to make an action to close it .

                          Another suggestion is that an alternative news source be available to AOL members to have a discounted subscription to CRTV.

                                  • NOT ONE POSITIVE COMMENT IN MANY MONTHS. HEY AOL? LISTENING?

                                    Absolutely right,new GOLD *** major wind. The old AOL program was much more stab;e and user friendly; This GOLD version is not only an embarrassment, but probably ripe candidate for a class-action lawsuit. AOL should stop charging customers for an inferior product that is rife with problems not found in previous versions. AOL? ARE YOU LISTENING? EL **** !

                                        Change survey from 1 to 10..some computers do not recognize 10 , thinks it's a 1 (giving a poor rating)
                                        1 to 5 is sufficient

                                          Has anyone working at AOL graduated high school? AOL is such a mish-mash of driblle and tripe and that it appears to be a training class for 8th grade wanna-be's......

                                          AOL ****. If the word "maybe" and "reportedly" were taken out of the English vocabulary, AOL would be out of business.
