  1. Duplicate Names

    I have had my aol.com email name since joining in the 1990's. until a few years ago some one else has my same e-address but not password which is of little comfort since I can trace her name, home address, city and state etc on the dark web. This was annoying at first but Im really concerned that my personal information may soon be found. This sounds like a flaw in AOL security. How long do I need to keep complaining? can someone fix this??

  3. New version of AOL is a step backwards

    It is SO much more difficult to scroll on AOL since your last "upgrade". It was perfect before and now it is unnecessarily harder. How can I go back to the previous version?

  6. calender

    In AOL Calendar you started automatically adding holidays, including some very obscure holidays. These holidays appear above my events, obscuring my events that are later in the day. Look at October 10, for instance.

    Can you provide a mechanism for opting out of the automatic insertion of holidays?

    Thank you

  8. First, after being off line for 3 days (or maybe more) My AOL MESSENGER NOT SHOWING UP. I spoke to Shane, then Esther who was very kind.

    No one told me that MESSENGER is not part of AOL! I need all of the names that were on my Instant Messenger that I have used for 29 years. I don't have a list of my MANY CONTACTS. I SUGGEST, FIND THAT ENTIRE LIST AND EMAIL IT TO ME IMMEDIATELY!! If I knew that you were removing it, there is no excuse for not notifying me!
    Shame on AOL. i already signed in, now it says SIGN IN REQUIRED!

  12. Can you change software to allow other activity while printing?

    Whenever I need to print an email or something I find on the web when I'm in the Desktop Gold software, the software does not allow me to do anything once the printing starts until it is finished. The last time the AOL software was set this way was back in dial-up days. There should be a way to change this. I sent in this topic before and it was closed with no resolution or comment from AOL.

  14. Give us back what we had

    You have taken away so much from us that pay to use your service - give us back seeing whose on line, and give back the Instant messages. We paid for those services and you took them away.

  15. NEW CALENDAR IS TERRIBLE

    Do you want FEEDBACK about the new AOL CALENDAR?? Well here it is... YUK!!! It needs work!!!

    (1) Font is too small... because there's so much wasted space. Do we really need a 2 inch header of mostly blank space? And why does the header say AOL MAIL instead of AOL CALENDAR?

    (2) Why is "SHOW TO DO's" listed under ACTIONS instead of listed under SETTINGS? When I turn-off "TO DO's" I want them permanently turned off. I DO NOT want to be forced to turn them off every time I use the Calendar... because "TO DO's" wastes about 2…

  18. Allow customers to have the option of the "New and Improved"

    I could deal with even Gold but the "New and Improved" version is horrendous! My mobile app no longer holds my contacts. The list is endless. PLEASE offer your customers the option to use the "new and improved" version! First time in all of these years I regret using AOL. Today, my desktop version went back to 2021 with New emails. Had to go to phone to get new emails.

  19. You currently do not have a way to send selective alerts from calendar to cellphones

    You currently do not have a way to send selective alerts from my calendar to my cellphones as a txt msg. like what gmail from their calendar has. I would like to see a new field added to the calendar reminder that allows you to select whether the alert for a calendar entry goes to your e-mail address or to your cellphone. High priority items on the calendar I would like to get a text msg to my cellphone
