  3. Deleted SPAM addresses should AUTOMATICALLY BE SENT to "Block Unwanted Mail" list.

    ALL AOL PROGRAMS, especially AOL GOLD should automatically BLOCK SPAM address or at least have the option to do so. Any and ALL deleted SPAM addresses should AUTOMATICALLY BE sent and ADDED to the AOL "Block Unwanted Mail" list. Probably the reason it isn't already is AOL is partly corrupt and in paid cahoots with certain SPAMMERS and/or AOL Programmers either don't know how to set that up or have been instructed not to by AOL Veeps. Either way, it's idiotic and antiquated and renders inept, impotent and poor service for which AOL now has a global reputation.

  5. A NEW OPTION, REPORT A BUG. LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE AOL DOES, IT DOESN'T WORK.

    GO AHEAD AND REPORT A BUG, IT DOES NO GOOD. ANY SURPRISE? NO, NOTHING GETS FIXED, NOTHING WORKS RIGHT, EMAILS WON'T OPEN AND WHEN THEY DO THEY'RE BLANK. THOSE BUGS HAVE BEEN REPORTED REPEATEDLY. ALONG WITH THE ERROR CODES THAT COME WITH EVERY SINGLE MAIL ATTEMPTED TO BE SEND.

  13. you folks sure ruined the address bar. used to store about 50 or more searches and now not very many at all

    Return address bar back to what it was before you came up with the new and improved version. Many folks are unhappy and so am i. If it ain't broke leave it alone. Just look at the neg posts.

  14. favorites folder

    At the top of the "Favorites" dropdown box there used to be a folder with the word "Favorites" to the right of it. It is no longer there. This was where one could click and then click the "New" button so as to create a new folder under the "favorites" category. If you need to discuss this leave your direct phone number and I will contact you so as to a remote session so that you can see what I am talking about.

    I've had one email in spam now for more than a week that will not delete. I've tried multiple times. Each time I get an error code ET-5016 telling me to try again later yet all the other ones delete. I'm sick of it and want it gone!

  18. Autofill website in the ADG browser

    When searching for a specific website using Aol Desktop Gold browser,it used to fill in the rest of the web address based on what I searched for in the past.Now the autofill is disabled with no way of turning it back on and the only option I have is to select one of the many options in the dropdown that appears as I type in the entire website.This is made particularly difficult by the amount of suggestions that appear in the dropdown,even if I do clear the footprints of ADG regularly.

  20. keyhg@aol.com

    On desktop Go;d up and down scroll bar should be on left side of page as writing is from left to right and would certainly help left handers or maybe put it on both sides and keep everybody Happy
