  1. Thank you + font

    Thank you for now allowing emojis to be used in sent emails and also for emblems/crests in letter headings to be included on emails.
    Is it possible to link the fonts on word processors to fonts on sent emails? This was done on earlier versions of AOL. Commercial script and Cloister Black would be welcomed by me.

    • 'Reply to' feature

      It would be great to have a 'Reply to' feature. In other words, if user A sends an email to user B and user B replies, the email goes back to user A. If user A could have a 'Reply to' feature e.g.,, user A could insert a different screen name for replies. I use AOL GOLD for our home owners association and most people have the tendency to reply to an email rather than forwarding it to an email address specified in the body of the email. In this case, a 'Reply To' feature would be great.

      • On the AOL APP for Android phones, there is ability to select: ALL, Read, UNRead, etc..

        when I go to ANY email folder on the phone APP, I can choose 'view UNREAD' or others

        This would be a VERY NICE enhancement for the Desktop.

            • Email "Emergency Brake."

              There used to be a "stop sending" button on emails. Example, you click SEND and suddenly realize you forgot something, used to be able to stop sending, fix it, and send it again. Would be really nice to have again.

                • Since comments are closed on my issue...

                  I had reported the following: "Report a Bug" has no confirmation/follow-up, so here is the issue:
                  I reported this issue in the "Report a Bug" area. Every attachment I attempt to download is corrupted. For example, a 65.7 KB Excel file saves as 2 KB, and no information is present in the file upon opening. This has happened in the last 6 files I downloaded, the most current being today. This is TOTALLY unacceptable! Luckily, I can forward to my work email address...what about the people who have no other email address? This needs fixed immediately! I was asked to…

                      This Feedback forum was a nice idea, but has become useless. New posts need to be on top, posts need a date. We're confused as to what happened and when. Recently Aol pulled back the Beta version, but to what? Where are we now? How are we supposed to help you if you don't help us?

                      • AOL GOLD IS A DEFECTIVE PROGRAM

                        AOL GOLD IS A DEFECTIVE PROGRAM
                        AOL GOLD DEVELOPERS (PROGRAMMERS) SHOULD BE FORCED TO BECOME AOL USERS,

                        THEY WOULD FIND ALL THE ERRORS & PROBLEMS IN 1 WEEK.

                        I AM EMBARESSED FOR THIS TEAM. I HAVE PROGRAMMERS IN CHINA AND USA, WHO WOULD HAVE HAD THINGS FIXED 10 X FASTER.

                        "BEST OR NOTHING" IS AMERICAN PHYLOSOPHY AND WHY AMERICA BECAME #1 COUNTRY IN THE WORLD IN 200 YEARS.

                        & REST OF THE "LAID BACK" 3RD WORLD STILL LIVES PRIMITIVE LIVES
                        BECAUSE THEY PRACITICE.
                        "GOOD ENOUGH"
                        3RD WORLD PHYLOSOPHY.

                        "NOT EXCELLENCE" AMERICA WAS FOUNDED ON!

                          • 1761 brings back "Re-enter password" after sleeping

                            was happening several releases ago, got fixed, now broke again.

                            When Windows goes into sleep mode, upon wakening - AOL requires password again - EVEN THOUGH on my desktop, it is remembered!! (i.e. not needed to log on)

                              • When inserting a link into email from the "heart" The link should be the desired font size chosen originally for email.

                                When inserting a link into email from the "heart" The link should be the desired font size chosen originally for email. Now it just inserts it at the smallest font available. If you write next to the link now your text looks out of order of sorts.t

                                  • PLEASE, PLEASE , PLEASE FIX "THE BASICS"

                                    FIX THE BASICS AOL GOLD IS WORST PROGRAM I EVER USED. I BEEN USING COMPUTERS SINCE 1987.

                                    1.) SAVE DRAFT SHOULD SAVE THE ORIGINAL DRAFT ONLY
                                    "1 TIME" IT SAVES MULTIPLE COPIES.

                                    2) COPY, PASTE, CUT, UNDO, SPELL CHECK WORKS ONLY 50% OF TIME.

                                    3. BROWESER EDIT WORKS 50% OF TIME

                                    4. IT TAKES 4-10 CLICKS FOR EMAIL TO OPEN SOMETIMES IT FREEZES.DOESNT OPEN AT ALL, OR WILL NOT SEND.

                                    THESE ARE BASIC EMAIL FEATURES WE USE EVERY DAY. ARE WE HAVING A LANGUAGE BARRIER HERE, YOU ARE FIXING THINGS NORMAL PEOPLE USE ONCE A MONTH!!!

                                        • There are NUMEROUS 'suggested' problems not being fixed.

                                          I, and others, have been suggesting problems that need to be fixed - yet none are being done ever since you've forced users onto the Gold Beta.

                                          Will this BETA ever get the fixes being asked for?
