  1. I can not forward with these type of attachments - 69.9 KB image002.png or image001.png (6.6KB) also winmail.dat (111.4KB)

    we should be able to forward anything that we can receive, We pay for AOL and almost no one does that and they have better capabilities on free e-mail accounts such as outlook, gmail, yahoo etc

  2. The ability to mark emails with a color.

    If I could mark some of my emails with a color, they would be easier to locate and would also remind me about important emails. This color would go all the way across the strip describing the email ( Date, From, Subject ) so it would stand out. Basic colors could be Red for important. Yellow for something to be aware of. Green for a good one. Or you could make up your own color scheme.

Collected more than 9000 about this in my specific folder Tried to create a filter so that all emails from this sender will go directly to my specific folder but now i am getting them on the inbox.
    I also see emails from the Sent folder which iI did not send. It shows that I sent out emails from Me to Me.

    I am very upset that the feature under send email has been removed. You cannot select save on my pc. This feature has been removed. I have been using AOL and this feature for over 30 years and this is a big inconvenience. This feature needs to be restored. Thanks

  9. The "Save Window SIze and Position" for the Mailbox window should also save the column widths.

    The "Save Window Size and Position" should also save the column widths in the Mailbox window. Every time I select "Read" to open the Mailbox, I have to make the "My Mail Folders" column wider to fit all my folder names, and I have to make the "From" column wider to see more of the email addresses. Other apps and programs do this without the user even asking to save them. They just keep the widths the same as they were left when last used.

  13. AOL GOLD Email should include the "SLIDESHOW" feature for photos.

    AOL GOLD email should include the "SLIDESHOW" feature for attached photo files. I receive Email photos regularly and would like the option to view them in other than thumbnail size and without having to save them. AOL GOLD does not have this function, but regular, Free AOL Mail does. In fact, the FREE AOL Email automatically opens any and all attached email photos in thumbnail format with the "SLIDESHOW" option to expand a photo to full screen. The only way to view attached photos with AOL GOLD Email is to SAVE them to a folder, which is cumbersome, messy and…

  14. Update on the total count for mail folders

    Use version as of January 14: 11.0.3046 this is good enough. The inbox should should and new and the new folder should only show the new messages with indication of count. The old will also have a numeric indication. It is not necessary for the fonts to be bold.

  17. Quick Find - Select All- Delete

    Hello, I have the most difficult time cleaning out my mail box. PLEASE YOU COULD HELP IN THIS WAY:
    Quick Find:
    Then IF you would ADD these options:
    SELECT ALL:
    DELETE:

    I have to scroll to delete one email at a time..that takes hours that is why I don't do it. I have so many emails that I try to get people to send me messages in other ways. However I could quickly get ahold and manage my mail so much easier if for example:
    QUICK FIND: gnc
    then all my emails that say GNC would come up
    then
    SELECT…

  19. filter

    I need to set a folder for email containing the words "payment receipt". The filter system will not allow a two word filter criteria. Only emails with the exact words "payment receipt" need to be filtered, but your filter system will not allow me to use two words. If I use "payment" all emails with the word payment will be captured, even the ones similar to "amazon payment receipt" would be trashed. That is not acceptable. I need to be able to receive legitimate payment receipt emails so your filter system is not effective for my needs. Would you please…

  20. REMOVE THE NEW UPDATE ON THE E-MAIL PAGE (Delete,Mark as read & Report to spam)

    The most resent update DELETE, MARK AS READ AND REPORT SPAN on the new E-mail page is the worst I ever seen in more than 25 years as a member of AOL. I have been deleting and reported e-mails to spam by accident. I am kindly asking you to remove that option ASAP. It makes me very unhappy.
