  2. Your Suggestions Don't Work...NONE OF THEM.

    Here's what you have suggested:

    "Hey,
    Wanted to let you all know that you now have the ability to block mail from unwanted senders. Please click the link here to learn more: https://help.aol.com/articles/keep-your-inbox-clean-by-blocking-unwanted-mail-in-aol-desktop-gold
    Sincerely,
    AOL Product Support"

    I have been an AOL subscriber for more than 40 years, probably longer than most of you current staffers have been alive. Rest assured that by now, I KNOW how to block spammers. The only trouble is, none of your suggestions works anymore.

    Are you really serious about blocking spam/phishing, or are you only interested in filling every available space on a given…

  6. Yellow bar

    I still don't like the yellow highlight, but it is much less annoying now that it does not shift everything because it was larger vertically. But there still is one exception - when the yellow highlight overlaps the blue (selected) highlight, the size changes and this is visually annoying and distracting. Simple fix get rid of the yellow bar altogether, but otherwise fix the size issue when on the selected (blue) line.

  9. Read messages in the "New" forlder

    LEAVE the New messages that I have read IN my New folder until I switch to a different folder.
    In other words, THE WAY IT USED TO BE.
    .
    Do NOT move the read messages to the Incoming Saved folder when I change the message sorting in my New folder.
    .

  10. Past few days new incoming mail does not scroll up to be seen must be done manually. Return to automatic new incoming mail to scroll up

    Past few days new incoming mail does not automatically scroll up to be seen, must be done manually. Return to the automatic new incoming mail to scroll up.

    I had an AOL tech in my desktop Gold AOL and all is working normally and he suggests this must be a new feature. This may be true but I cannot believe AOL would do this as it inconveniences the Gold member.

    Fix and or return my feature to automatically scroll to the top and newest incoming mail fro me to see.

  15. Seeing sender's complete address at hover

    Bring back the ability to see the sender's full address when you hover over it!! Why in the world would you think about removing this SECURITY feature? If it's not clear who the sender is, we now have only two options - open it and potentially find a problematic email or delete it and find out later that it was something necessary.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…
