  3. MOVE EMAILs from SPAM/TRASH to AOL/Local folders.

    Like the Android AOL App, I'd like to: MOVE emails from Spam or Trash to local or AOL folders.

    ON desktop GOLD, I can MOVE ONLY from my INBOX to AOL folders, meaning that any files in SPAM and TRASH must be first moved from there to the INBOX then to a folder I want them in.

    If the Android APP can, why can't GOLD?

    Please expand the size of attachments to more than 25 MB. Because when I tried to forward the exact email that I received, AOL Desktop Gold did not allow me to do it. I was able to send more than 25 MB of attachments from the old AOL Desktop 9.8.2.

  5. Folders can't be moved to "Saved on AOL"

    We ought to be able to Copy "Saved on my PC" folders to "Saved on AOL" as there are several selective backup utilities that can only see content on "Saved on AOL" folders.

    As another reviewer said, the Manage Folders functions "Move" and "Save Folder As" functions are not working.

  9. words banned from chat

    Please review common words and terms that are currently banned from posting in chat rooms. For example: Magna *** Laude, a Latin term which means to graduate from college with high distinction. Also, "kitty litter" when chatting about pet cats, and "blow," as in to blow out candles on a birthday cake. Your censors apparently do not understand common English or Latin words and how they are used. There should not be any reason to prevent their posting. Not everybody's mind is in the gutter.

  13. The word I should always be in upper case. When I type it as i, this is incorrect. GOLD program does not show this as an error.

    The word I should always be in upper case. When I type it as i (LOWER CASE), this is incorrect. GOLD program does not show this as an error.

    Second issue If I have to type a word or name that is correct for my
    use, I get a "QUESTIONABLE" along with YOUR list of suggestions. What happens if those suggestions are not what I need or want?  There is no way to correct or amend the word in the QUESTIONABLE area. There is no cursor in that area. There is also no way to save that word IN ORDER…

  16. allow spelling changes within spell check.

    after generating an email, one uses aol spell check and comes across a misspelled word-
    if the correct word is not in the suggested list, one must close spell check and manually correct the spelling in the email.
    spell check should allow for changes to be made dynamically in the box where the misspelled word shows up.

  18. there needs to be a way to save multiple emails, as a group to a flash drive or hard copy

    there needs to be a way to select multiple emails, and save them all as individual files, to a flash drive, hard drive, etc so they can be used/viewed individually... OFF SITE from AOL or required internet access.

    I have a situation where I need to make a copy of 249 emails and present them all, as separate, electronic files, as evidence in a court case. All 249 emails are saved - on AOL, in the PFC, and accessible... but only through internet access. I need to submit a flash drive to the court with all of the files, as…

  19. 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!

  20. Calendar Look Back

    Calendar Only allows a 2-1/2 year look back on a rolling basis.

    How about at least 5 yrs ? 10 yr look back even better.
