  1. The new Star on the right side of the screen that shows up when you are reading an email, prevents you from accessing the bottom of emails.

    please get rid of the star on the right side of the screen when you are reading emails. It prevents you from seeing the bottom of the email and saving it, deleting it etc. It is very annoying!

  2. Buttons at bottom of each piece of e-mail -- SAVE, MARK UNREAD, or DELETE -- have become obscured by AOL upgrade.

    Since the recent upgrade, the size of opened e-mails is slightly larger. This obscures the SAVED, MARK UNREAD, OR DELETE buttons at the bottom of each piece of mail. I have to use a work-around -- an extra step or 2, which is time-consuming -- to designate how each piece of mail should be handled (SAVE, MARK UNREAD, OR DELETE). I agree with other users that the new orange highlighting of mail is, at best, unnecessary and, at worst, annoying. The ineptitude of AOL never ceases to amaze.

  3. setting bcc, cc etc to send email

    sending mail bcc , cc etc you have to go the bottom of the screen for each one. The old way was faster it was right by the name. Please reinstate the old way or make us able to reinstate it using settings.

  4. Automatically insert a space after inserting an emoji or pasting in a hyperlink.

    Hitting the spacebar doesn't work to add a space. It is annoying and frustrating to find AoL adding text to the hyperlink or having to type text after an emoji in order to go back and add a space before the text.

  6. Stop emptying Spam Address Folder every few days, let it fill up to it's max 1st.

    I follow the Desktop Gold instructions to the letter regards blocking SPAM by listing the SPAM Addresses into the "Blocked Mail Folder". Yet AOL keeps cleaning the folder every few days and I have to start all over again, with same SPAM addresses. And AOL is charging me for this stupidity...

  12. Any chance we'll get back the ability to hit Ctrl and Enter and have it Send our emails?

    AOL used to allow us to use our keyboard to Send an email by simply holding down the Ctrl key and hitting the Enter key.

    Any chance they can add that back again. It should be a very simple macro command.

  13. quickbooks compatibility

    I cannot send reports out of Quickbooks with AOL because of some security issue. Can you fix this or tell me how. Quickbooks thinks AOL is not secure but it will allow me to send reports through GMAIL. If you do not fix this I will have to switch to GMAIL.

  17. Spell check

    Once again I would like to ask if you can possible make the mail program at least as responsive at version 9 was! It is ridicules that you cannot click on Skip all if there are proper names or words you want to use that are not in the spell check library. It is even more ridicules that you must go over the entire email every time you click on Spell Check if you just want to correct one word or start from a specific place and not have to go through the whole email. Both of these options were…

  20. away message text format does not allow spaces nor enter

    When typing an "away message" it does not allow spaces nor enter at the end of a sentance. It appears as if it is a run on sentance
