  1. News articles problems - broken links or contain viruses.

    Frequently when I try to open an article from the main page or a sub-page either the link is broken or a virus or worm infects my system. You need to do a better job making sure posts are clean.

  2. My emails will not load.

    Now that I am paying a monthly fee to AOL, I have less service and less features. I have had AOL for 20 years+. This is unexcusable.

  4. When I click on offered News on AOL welcome screen I always get a web attack: Fake Tech Support Website, only on AOL, computer has no virus

    When I click on offered News on AOL welcome screen I always get a web attack: Fake Tech Support Website, only on AOL, computer has no virus. Norton always blocks this, but I want to read the news. I am paying for no news and risking some sort of internet attack from AOL. Not good

  7. AOL Gold has too many glitches. Does not work like old FREE version

    The free old version was so much better than the new AOL which I now pay for. Constant issues, less options. Today it says I have 160+ emails and I can only see 3 in my New mail folder. Go back to the way it was. This is terrible,

  14. Disaster search mail function

    Disaster. Search email function disabled although essential to my work in international law and finance, Restore as previously so that by entering name in search receive all emails to and from that person.

    I have wasted at least six hours as a result of your incomprehensible switch to yet another software system, Gold, which eliminates essential functions. This is a disgrace. I work as a lawyer by the hour and this is time wasted as a result of AOL incompetence and AOL's efforts to lock in its customers. AOL makes virtually impossible to transfer groups to another internet service provider.…

  17. Sudden need to sign in each time

    After being signed in all day, now when I close AOL Gold, I have to sign back in instead of automatically having the browser open. Then my personal favorites are missing in the task bar, Edit settings doesn't work and I end up having to restart the PC to only have to sign back in again which fixes the "favorites on the task bar, but I get the "welcome, etc. sounds each time. Mail isnt impacted. I reset the sound by disabling them, now every time I have to sign in. Why?

  18. Sent mail is not being saved in the "Mail You've Sent" Folder

    I've sent emails over the last several days, Mail I've read, is in the "Incoming/Saved Mail" folder, but mail I send is NOT in the "Mail You've Sent" folder.
    Additionally my Inbox shows 5 unread emails, "Inbox (5)" .. but there is NO UNREAD emails ?!? All show red checks
    If I click on "NEW", NOTHING shows up

    It is making the email handling - UNTRUSTABLE ..

  19. My address book changed overnight.

    My address book changed overnight. I write an email. I open my address book. I select a person's name and hit "send". Nothing appears in the "to" box of the email. A group name appears in the "bcc"box. What has happene??! The individual address card for EACH of my 30 or 40 contacts now lists either the person's screen name or a group name as the PRIMARY email address. I'm positive I didn't do a mass change of this magnitude! I desire to default my address lists back to what it was a mere 3 days ago! Otherwise I have…
