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 want to opt out of having to click twice in two different places when getting rid of already deleted emails. It's extremely annoying and I will
drop AOL if it cannot be done.

Why in the world do I have to verify that I want to DELETE an email?????

All of a sudden I have to permanently delete email in my deleted folder individually. It takes forever. whats up with that?
What happened to my inbox??? Until recently, I could go through my mail and delete an email and move on to the next. NOW, I have to click on delete and a pop up shows asking me if I'm sure I want to delete it. If I delete something accidently I could always go to the recently deleted folder and retrieve it. WHY FIX WHAT AIN'T BROKE?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate this, it's repetitive and time consuming.

Please remove the delete massage when deleting email.. wasting time
Why in the world did you re-post emails from back in Sept. that I had deleted in my recently deleted file? Its back enough I have to delete new emails twice without deleting them a third time.
Why don't you go back to the old way of deleting mail???? The new and improved way of a 4 step process to delete is just new but NOT improved!! Just spent 20 minutes deleting mail and was asked 4 times to ask if I was sure I wanted to delete Who's idea was this? They must be desperate to be on their computer as long as possible How moronic
Up until a couple of days ago when I wanted to delete my listed emails I simply hit delete for each one. If there were 5 I would hit delete, delete, delete, delete, delete. Now I have to hit delete, YES, delete,YES, delete, YES and so on. Its a pain in the neck. Go back to the old way. The statement is do you want to delete the selected items, which implies I should be able to selected several and hit YES one time. Mine doesn't seem to be able to do that.
Tap once to delete email. I now have 160 emails that I have to tap twice.
They go to deleted mail and can be restored if you deleted the wrong one.
You, people, have been working on improving for over 20 years!!!!
What makes you think that will EVER get it right???? Personally, I believe
that you WANT to aggravate the **** out of us and have no intention of getting things just right! ! ! ! ! Now I need an extra move to delete unwanted emails??? Why? YES, I'M SURE I want to delete it Waste of time and effort! Get rid of it! ALSO, why do we need 5 tabs in the email box????? That is ridiculous & useless! ! ! Why there is a need for "inbox" plus "search"? "NEW" "OLD" & "SENT" IS ENOUGH ! ! ! ! !
All the money you've been charging over the years and you CANNOT hire people who can do the job right! You stink!
AND I DO KNOW THIS: IF ANYONE IS READING THESE COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS IS ONLY FOR screening, checking for bad language! NO ONE is actually taking notes!
You hired three year olds to play with it and these are the results!
THIS is SICK!!!!!

If you do not get rid of the delete popup I am going to get rid of AOL
double delete on mail is stupid go back the way it was or make it a option
go back to the way it was
TELL YOU WHAT IF YOU DO NOT FIX THE MAIL SO DELETING IS EASIER GUESS WHAT? I AM GOING TO CANCEL AOL I AM TIRED OF THIS **** IT IS ANNOYING
Its the worst idea I every so on the internet.
If I have to keep clicking twice to delete emails, I am certainly switching to gmail
Make it a customer choice so that I can dlete the pop up and others who want to keep it, can do so.
Why is the Spam mail ending up with my regular mail? This has been happening the last 2 weeks.
And, why can't I delete unwanted mail without going through 2 or 3 steps?
