  3. When are all these corrections going to be made?

    No offense intended, but my patience with aol gold has worn pretty thin. I saw where an aol person mentioned in their answer to a complaint that it is updated every two weeks. I am still having issues from when aol gold went live that are not fixed!?! The least aol can do is to allow us to use 9.6 until gold functions without a hitch.

  7. FIX THE EMAIL SYSTEM

    after reading a new email and marking it unread the email will sometimes go in the old email folder. I mark it unread to go back to new it goes into new then I check old folder and it's back in the old folder. I can go back and forth with this all day trying to keep an email new. Very frustrating. I have had tech support at least 3 times now with no fix. Hate the GOLD/CAN'T TRUST IT

  8. Editing My Address Book

    When Editing My Address Book, once I delete an entry, the system jumps back to the top of the list. Very annoying! Make the system stay at the point of "edit."

  10. Missing a ton of email

    Inbox says I have several emails I mean thousands (which I should because I am lazy and don't check often plus get a lot of junk) but I have 4 new emails and old ones I had saved as new a long time ago. Where did the rest go? Says 3000 emails has 15... Where did they go, when I need to see some of them? Is this because of windows update? Windows 10 updated, and restarted then my aol was unresponsive, I ended the task now no matter how many times I close and open aol I can't see…

  13. AOL DESKTOP GOLD

    I randomly experience the inability to log on. Also my version of AOL Gold does not get updated or that I have been so advised.
    know where to check for current version of AOL Gold would be helpful

    Being self employed creates enormous issues when the anomolies occur
