  2. E-Mail Lists Shift Vertically When Cursor is Moved Inside the List

    When the cursor is moved into a list of e-mails, all of the e-mails below the position of the cursor shift downward. When the cursor is removed, the e-mails shift upward. This is distracting.

    Has anyone else noticed this behavior? If so, join me in requesting that this be fixed.

  3. New Update leads to more ***** ups!

    Every time AOL does an update it screws something up....last update to REVISION 11.0.3800 now has my Old Email listing all screwed up! Mail from last year in with last week, last month on top, yesterday's mail mixed in all over the place instead of being listed first...Happens ever "Darn" time AOL does an update...If AOL was FREE I'd expect problems but I PAY for these headaches but not much longer at this rate! Also...half the time never told if the email I just sent was actually sent....really is a "PITB" (pain in the butt) but you know what I…

  7. Glad your recent font enlargement of highlighted email addresses is gone today!

    Thank you for getting rid of the enlarged font when email addresses were highlighted. It was extremely annoying. It was so awful that I considered canceling AOL and just using Google or Safari to read my mail.

  8. email in aol desktop gold

    I like the latest build of aol desktop gold. A lot of fixes in place. The software is a lot more better than before. AOL doesn't seem to crash as much

    A big thank you to the IT department.

    However, I know that there is still work to be done and I'm sure that aol desktop gold still needs work.

    The email is still not quite as smooth as it could be. I have both a gmail and yahoo email account and both of those email accounts are very smooth when switching from new to old to sent email.

    For…

  11. Add the Attachments Listing to Email Print Outs in AOLGold, like it is in the Browser Email Print Out Feature

    Print out of Email with Attachments, from Browser Access, gives me a listing of the Attachments on the print out.
    Print out of Same Email, from AOL Desktop Gold, does NOT give me the same feature. I cannot see a list of the attachments.
    Please add a feature to AOL Gold, so that my print outs includes a listing of all the attachments sent.

  17. Read my email setting

    I noticed that the newest aol desktop gold build includes a read my email setting.

    While this is nice to have, a few issues are present.
    1) On my laptop, I have the highest possible resolution set for windows 7 and yet the read my email icon is half hidden. There should be a way to either scroll down or reduce the size of the icon.

    2) While the read my email icon is nice to have, not everyone will use it so have a way to customize the icons on the right hand side of the email window.

  19. email synch with android aol app

    Synch email on AOL mobile android app to AOL Gold Desktop. I am very frustrated when I go through all my emails on my AOL mobile Android app, end up deleting a bunch of emails that I don't need or want, but when an hour or 2 later I log in to AOL Gold on my desktop/laptop, all those same emails that I deleted are still showing 'new'. So the mobile and desktop AOL are NOT syncing email.
