The To: box should only give us choices of names or addresses that BEGIN with those letters
Names and addresses that just CONTAIN the few letters that we type in the To: box are showing up instead of just names or email addresses that BEGIN with those letters. For example, I typed "red" in the To: box, and every single name and email address that just contains the letters "red" anywhere in the name or anywhere in the address all show up! Much less convenient to have to wade through!
Please change auto fill in the address box of GOLD to select only addresses with the typed text as the first letters of the email address or the "last name" in the contact list. Until a recent, apparently automatic' "update" it worked that way. I have inadvertently sent email to wrong people as result of this change. PLEASE FIX IT BACK!
Why have you changed auto-fill to include EVERY EMAIL ADDRESS with the texted letters rather than only those where the letters are the beginning of an email address/username or the last name. After years of experience with confidence that an email address comes up, now I have to LOOK AT THE ENTIRE LIST returned and make a selection. It is embarrassing to get an email from a consciencious contact telling me I've mistakenly sent an email to their address. AFTER MORE THAN 20 YEARS AS AOL USER, you are DRIVING ME AWAY.
I SEE ENTIRE ADDRESS BOOK AND NOT JUST THE FIST LETTER OF THE PERSON. HAVE TO LOOK THROUGH ENTIRE ADDRESS BOOK TO SEND E-MAIL TO A SPECIFIC PERSON.

Say for instance I'm looking for Cking....... So I type ck instead of getting 3 items on that list I get 37 because these 37 all have ch as part of their E-mail address. Sorry that is stupid. I'm so glad I kept my old AOL program on one computer. I can't connect with it but the address book still works normal. Also the on line version still work normal as well for address search. Please fix this in the Gold.
Hello, before "gold' it was much easier to Address an email, I would start to type a name, and my Address book listed possible matches in a very intelligent order - listing names that BEGAN with the letters i am inputting , Now... when i start to type a name, it will instead list possible addresses in ALPHABETICAL order, NOT listing them STARTING with the letters i am starting with . thank you..
