  2. Background vs Stationery

    You obviously misunderstood, we didn't want your stationery, we want to be able to OUR OWN backgrounds like before. How difficult is that? You don't even understand what your customers want or need, yet you increase the rates? That's almost laughable. You're stealing from us. Why didn't you take notes of AOL 9.8.2 before you cut it off? You don't have a clue as to what we want or need. You're not even trying to satisfy us. Why not?

  6. AOL Survey Does Not Show a Link

    Survey Link Not Working –

    I received an AOL Survey email with the following text:

    Note: If the survey link doesn’t work, check to see if your browser allows pop-ups.

    There is no link to click on.

    I called the AOL phone tech and she said the problem is with AOL.

    The link does appear on AOL Web mail.

    I would just like to request for the (DOMINOES ALL FIVES) to work and for AOL to recreate the game so its going to be compatible in using here on the software without going to a different browser. Hopefully it will work soon here. ***

  10. Return to the old version of COMMENTS ON AN ARTICLE. When a person replies and you click on it it WILL NOT take you to the response.

    Roll back the programming on being able to comment on articles. In the new version when someone replies and you click on the link it does not take you to the comment to respond. Instead it open the article and you have to click on show more replies in every section and begin searching for the comment. It is time consuming and tedious. Is is NOT USER FRIENDLY!

  11. Save To My PC

    When the heck did you change the 'saved to my pc'? It used to save to a folder in My Documents ON MY COMPUTER! It was great as I didn't have to get on line to sign in to AOL to see mails I saved to MY PC! I don't like the idea of having to sign on to my email account, which requires an online connection to look for something I saved to my computer. Please bring back that feature.

  13. new mail sound

    It is very frustrating that you can customize the sound for Welcome, You've Got Mail, and Goodbye but not for More Mail. In previous versions of AOL, I would assign the "You've Got Mail" sound to the "More Mail" command via Control Panel/Sound in Windows because you could barely hear the little CLICK sound it makes when you receive mail while logged into AOL. The AOL sounds no longer appear here and cannot be altered. So now we are stuck with the inaudible default click. Since these AOL software sounds no longer appear in Windows, would you please allow this…

    When are you going to fix the address book so our print feature works again. If aren't going to be to print our address book anymore, then remove the darn print button that is in it.

    Hi,

    Thanks for taking the time to reach out. We’re planning to add the print functionality back to the address book, so that’s why the print icon remains there.

    We appreciate your patience and will let you know once the functionality returns.

    Sincerely,
    AOL Product Support

  18. Please upgrade your Billing System to allow Members to pay manually.

    Please upgrade your Billing System to allow Members to pay manually without using your Auto Pay system, I find it very inconvenient that I have to call in every month (my paydays do fall near my billing date) to make a payment over the phone, plus; there's no option to post a different amount other than what is owed.

  19. When I'm using Aol Desktop Gold, I wanted to have the check box beside the "from" field.

    The "from' field makes organizing my mails easier, like wise when deleting them.

  20. Use Tab Key to put more space in between embedded images.

    allow us to use the tab key to put more space in between embedded pictures in the mail. Now I can only use the spacebar, and only lets me enter one space in between.
