I don't like having to agree to delete an e-mail. It's one step that is annoying.
In order to disable the prompt, please follow these steps:
1. Open the AOL Desktop Gold and sign in.
2. Click on the ‘Mail’ menu on the top left.
3. Select ‘Mail Settings’ from the drop-down menu.
4. Uncheck ‘Confirm before deleting items’, and close the window (changes are saved automatically).
I agree. Having to click on "Yes" for each deleted email is a pain in the neck. It is time consuming too. Why does AOL always force this stuff upon us but they think nothing of taking away things that we enjoy such as "Mail Art" They told me it would be back soon. That was a year ago.

Forever, I only had to click one time to delete my email....THANKS TO AOL, now I have to click TWICE!!!!!!! "WHY'????
asking if you want to delete a e mail is a waste i wouldnt delete if i didnt want to
When did deleting email become a 2 step process? I want to hit the delete on the inbox screen only once.
OMG - AOL is trying to go down in flames. Now you have to click twice to delete your new mail. With over 100 emails a day, that just doubles the email time. I don't have time for that. It must be designed for old people who don't get many emails. Of course, that is AOLs base. This will send me to gmail if they can't fix it or give 2 different options.
Why cant we delete messages without a pop up coming up and asking again, when I hit delete I want it deleted, period, not another pop up
I find AOL is becoming less and less competitive with other services for convenience and the charge less.
It would be nice to be able to high highlite a block of email and delete with one key stroke.
Another idiotic thing you added to AOL Gold. Having to answer if I really want to delete something every time I delete something. GET RID of this STUPID idea.
