    Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, due to privacy concerns we don’t plan on adding a read receipt feature at the moment.

    Sincerely,

  7. Posted Items

    The material you post is frustrating to get the real substance of where you are going. For Example the thoughts about what the Britsh thought about George Washington after he died are so complex to get to the answer that I just gave up and left the Web Site.

  9. read mail font size

    Text Font Size while reading received mail is 10pt. Tis also then controls reply font size - at 10pt. My chosen write font size is 14pt. Need to either provide separate setting for read mail and reply font size or apply the write font size to both write and read/reply mail.

  11. AOL...think about this.......

    I have been a paying member since 1999 and have seen many changes in AOL through the upgrades. the Gold Version is by far the worst created!!! Many thinkgs in 9.8 were very good for the members but you have changed or deleted them. It used to be fun to get online but you've changed all that.... It seems instead of listening to your members you've become ore interested in catering to advertisements! What will you do when your members are gone??? Have you checked the chat rooms lately? I remember when most were filled with 20 / 25 people…

  12. Backstory AGAIN!

    I am SO SICK of having to go through a back story when all I want to do when I click on a headline is get what the headline indicated. Enough of that crapola already! At least give me the option of clicking on the back story, don't just shove it down my throat.

  14. Los Angeles weather

    The weather in San Fernando Valley, CA is very different from Los Angeles weather. In the old AOL version, I was able to get my Reseda, CA weather. Now, the only weather I can get is Los Angeles, so i never know what the Reseda weather will be like. Other major cities in the Valley are Van Nuys, Northridge, Woodland Hills, Chatsworth. Why do you include them all with Los Angeles, which has very different weather? The San Fernando weather is hotter than Los Angeles. Example, the weather in Los Angeles is 87 today. It is over 100 in the…

  15. Free AOL Desktop Gold

    This is not an idea, but a frustrating feedback! Seemingly without notice my "free" AOL Desktop Gold became unusable. Contacted AOL a couple of times with no real "solutions." Then last evening noticed that there is "no more free AOL Gold." Except the approach to continue with AOL Mail, all else is via paid membership. All this happened with no alerts or prior notice of this significant impending change! Not good customer service!

  18. Hate

    I hate AOL for all its lies and **** it attempts to push down our throats. You push so hard you make me vomit. I look forward to the day you go out of business or go broke and get purchased by someone with a brain.
