    E mail says to update my mailbox. Sounds fishy. Is this legit?

  2. I would like to be able to retrive my email and use my favorites

    Make your service actually work. I've spent hours on the phone with your techs and reported the "BUG" numerous time with no solution.

  4. Official AOL Emails should be marked as such more clearly

    Mark official AOL emails more clearly like they were before. They seem to have a slightly different color mail icon but previously the icon & the actual email when opened was clearly indicated as "Official AOL Email". Also if they are indicated as official AOL correspondence how do these emails sometimes end up in the Spam/Junk folder? In this day of so much spam it is important to know what is official.

  8. Ever since I went to AOL Desktop Gold I'm getting a lot of ad e-mails and **** e-mails and I'm not very happy about it!!

    Ever since I went to AOL Desktop Gold I'm getting a lot of ad e-mails and **** e-mails and I'm not very happy about it, especially since I'm paying you. Also, there's no easy way to block these sites without opening the e-mail. Please respond with a solution.

    The best way to resolve this is to mark the emails as “Spam”, that way you can train the spam filter to better identify unwanted emails in the future. You can also block specific senders by going to the Mail menu on the top left, and selecting “Block Unwanted Mail” from the drop-down menu, then adding the senders emails address in the Sender Filter’s block list.

  10. email changes

    I keep getting emails to change my aol mail to a non-aol email application. Why am I paying for AOL Gold if I can no longer get my mail safely on it?

  11. Clicking on a link for a Zoom conference breaks AOL.

    Found out this is a feature, not a bug, using the browser contained within AOL's ecosystem. Workaround is forwarding the email to another address or accessing AOL mail via the web. This is about security, I was told by a tech, but it's pain. Zoom is VERY widely used in these coronavirus days, so AOL, please get with it.

  14. "Interactive Preview" of attached images & videos, only work once.

    First, Thank you - That is a great feature you added.

    Now, as the subject says. I move the cursor over the name of the attached image and can only see the preview once. If I move the cursor off then back on, no more.. Even selecting the "Interactive Preview" in the dropdown doesn't help..
    Unselect the email, reselect it, and I get the 'one view' again, but just the one view until I move the cursor off the name..

    Kind of starange action, and an annoyance of a great feature.

  15. I have received two emails from AOL (important security notice) regarding AOL Email. It said I am using a non- aol application for my email

    I have receive two emails from AOL (important security notice) regarding my Email account. It says I have been using a non-aol application and I must do one of three options by Oct. 20th. If I have been using a non-aol app, I certainly am not aware of it. Is this msg really from aol or is it some type of scam?

  16. i have sent repeated bug report

    I have sent repeated bug reports and still have no resolution. I have contacted support, they went into my system and reinstalled the software but since the issue wasn’t resolved they advised to send a bug report. But the bug reports do NOTHING!! My issue is still here on the gold desktop software. I can't switch between new, old and sent mail tabs in aol gold desktop software without very long delays. Most of the time it just freezes. Secondly, all of my sent mail shows TO: before the email address and therefore I can't sort my mail. When is…
