      • Please modify your software to allow the column width for the " Email address" to be at least 2 to 3 times wider. When I receive emails from

        You need the column width to show all of "customer service @ agora financial." instead of just "customer service @ ". I have to move the top of the screen on each email to see who is sending me the email and cannot scan them and delete the trash. It is a waste of time to have to open the column wider each time to read who the Email is from. Thank you for your help.

            Although the mail list does not display a time stamp, you can see the time when the email was received, by opening the email and checking the Date section in the email header just below the Subject line.

          • Please rearrange MY MAIL FOLDERS as follows: New, Old, Drafts, Sent, Spam and then Recently Deleted....the way it is now is terribly confus

            Please rearrange MY MAIL FOLDERS as follows: New, Old, Drafts, Sent, Spam, and then Recently Deleted...makes much more sense!!!!! Please!!!!

                • why do we have to keep clicking

                  Why do we have to keep clicking backwards to get back to article #1? Refresh used to do it instantly but you've removed that option. And no, clicking on "refresh" at the AOL logo does not do the same - it only refreshes the page you're on!

                    • Format control of emails page

                      I want to see and control more emails at once than the new gold allows and show only what I want to see

                      On aol anywhere I can
                      - change the size and adjust how many emails show up on the list
                      - use one hand and click on the side boxes to delete a large number of emails as a first run through
                      - not have all the icons take up a quarter of the page

                      • Bold font color is good - dark and easily read -- on regular type font the color - so faint it is hard to read

                        The font on articles other than titles which are a good dark color is extremely light and difficult to read. needs to be fixed- adjusted or something to darken the color of regular type in an article.

                        • Switch screen names

                          I do not like the way this desktop gold mail looks at all. My biggest complaint is that before "gold" you could click on the switch screen names and before you actually switched names, you could see the number of new / unread emails. I have to check other email names several times a day and it was easy if I saw 0 next to the name and didn't have to switch to that screen name. Now to check I have to go clear back to the log in screen each time.

                              • Download Manager

                                Thank you for finally adding the download manager feature. The only objection I have to it is that it is not nearly as good at the one in the last AOL version. In that one, I had several Favorites saved in one place and could just click on one of them and bring it up. Now, I click on one of them and it is saved so that I have to go to my documents to bring it up. Why did you add another step? Please go back to the last version and use whatever programming you used to make…

                                    • Why can't we read a story without having to click "Next" after every sentence?

                                      99% of us would like to read a story without having to click "Next" after every sentence. We don't pay any attention to the gazillion ads you throw at us....which, by the way, cover 2/3 of the screen. I wouldn't click on an ad if you paid me.

                                          Change survey from 1 to 10..some computers do not recognize 10 , thinks it's a 1 (giving a poor rating)
                                          1 to 5 is sufficient
