    • paying for a service i am not receiving

      I am paying $25 monthly for a service I am not receiving. I pay for AOL security, AOL gold, and Aol SMART FRIEND yet i cannot chat on games. This, i am told, is illegal to charge for services not provided.

      • Spam Mail Deletion

        I would suggest that recently deleted "Spam Mail" should go into the "Recently Deleted" folder the way previous versions (Blue) of AOL did for years. This would allow review prior to permanent deletion, esp. if the Spam Mail were deleted in error.

                    • Preferences for Welcome Screen and AOL Benefits

                      Suggesting that a possible selection in settings to disable the welcome screen appearing when signing in. I have defaulted to go directly to mail, however, there remains a default to the welcome screen in backdrop. This is rather annoying as I can still see it and my attention is then directed to the welcome screen to make an action to close it .

                      Another suggestion is that an alternative news source be available to AOL members to have a discounted subscription to CRTV.
                      This would allow members to customize their welcome screen to their preferences and would make the AOL…

                        • What happened to our prior ability to select which of the 3 email addresses to use on the contact list address card?

                          You used to provide an option to select between 3 separate email addresses on the contact list address card. With the latest update, that feature disappeared. What the heck? Why provide three separate email address options if one cannot select between them. This change is going backwards.

                          • please remove the extra click to show the details or emails under BCC. It should show up automatically

                            everytime i check my sent emails, instead of seeing the details right away i need to always do an extra click to show details.

                                  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.

                                  • 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.

                                      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!

                                          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…
