  1. Browser Related Issue

    Follow up for the issue that i have reported 4days ago about not being able to utilize and have the reply button for the craigslists.com. Please have it fix as the issue started since 01/27/2019. Please provide me a feedback if possible as this is a work related website for me and it's not satisfying to know that it's available in AOL Desktop Gold. Thanks.

  2. I want to customize the font I see on the AOL pages. I hate sans serif fonts. Why can't I change the font NOT just the size.

  3. I GET 25 TO 30 SPAM EMAILS A DAY. IT IS INSANE! YOU ARE ONLY ALLOWING REPORT 1,000 PEOPLE TO REPORT. YOU NEED TO ALLOW MORE SPAMS TO BE

    You are not allowing more then 1,000 people to be blocked in the spam filter. This is insane. I get 25-40 of these a day, and I am fed up. You need to fix your software to allow more in numbers!

  4. easier way to block unwanted email

    place button on bottom of email folder to block email from this user. if a highlighted email could be blocked by just clicking blockn then we wouldnt have to waste so much time going back and forth cutting and pasting addresses from messages to the spam block box which mine is getting pretty full now

  5. Convenient Email settings gone.

    New Gold Format has taken away small, but convenient settings. I now have to open each one of my screens to see if there is mail. Old Format showed number of emails on Sign On screen list.

  8. Search mail feature!

    When I search for a particular email address, I want mail "from that one person". I now get ALL the emails that this person was included in, such as in 'group' emails, like my Lions club. Some of those people also send me "personal" emails and I want to be able to search for the one particular email from that one particular person. This is how this "search" used to work and how it SHOULD work. Please switch this feature back to how it was...it is driving me crazy!

  9. 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…

  11. Why desktop only allows 50 names to filter into files?

    I am allowed to create as many files as I want, yet only allowed a total of 50 names to be filtered into those files. Why not more.

  15. Need for Email Dictionary for Users Who Inadvertently Add Misspelled Words, Including Names!

    I wrote yesterday requesting that AOL Gold users have their email dictionaries restored so that if users approve a misspelled word, they can go into their dictionaries and delete a word or name mistakenly approved so that it will not be accepted by the AOL spellcheck feature in the future. Today, I know more. If I misspell a proper noun or name and, for example, spell Dr. Yaryura, Yarura without the second "y," AOL Gold will accept the misspelled "Yarura," and I will look anywhere from rude to insulting to stupid because intelligent people in the communications field use their…

  17. spell check

    Please give us back the Skip all option in Spell check in a document with proper names or items not recognized by spell check: You kept Replace all so why not Skip all!
    And please all us to start spell check where the curser is: Since we cannot click Skip All we have to repeat every word we want to keep that you do no recognize which in a long email can be time consuming!
    Bottom line after reading all the other suggestions, just give us back 9.8! When something isn't broken don't fix it! Gold is a disaster on…
