  1. 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.

  2. Displaying "Tags" in Gold Browser doesn't work.

    I.E. See photo at http://cliptank.com/PeopleofInfluencePainting.htm

    Every face is "Tagged". I.E., Firefox & Chrome all show the "Tags", AOL Gold browser does not.

  3. Not so much an idea, just a wrong error msg.

    There was a problem handling your request. An unspecified error has occurred.

  5. Send Feedback Forum Disorganized

    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?

  7. 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…

  8. 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!

  9. Very ODD reappearance of UNWANTED Address book ID

    A few releases back, a contact that I write to stopped getting my emails.
    I found that their emails were going to their ALTERNATE ID, which i had in my address book for them.
    I deleted that alternate ID, SAVED the changed address book entry,
    BUT THEN -- the next new desktop release RESTORES that ALTERNATE ID -- AND again, uses it as the primary to send to!! ...

    This is re-occurring at each of the last 4 releases!!
    I delete that no-longer-wanted ALTERNATE ID, and it comes back on the next release !?!

  13. 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)

  14. COPY-PASTE to Email stopped working in 1746 release

    Copy/paste of an image stopped working. The previous copied text remains in the copy-buffer, and though a distinct COPY IMAGE is performed, the old copied text keeps being pasted.

  16. Please give line spacing selection

    I have the wording for some emails I regularly send on MSWord.doc document files, where single line spacing is used. When I copy and paste to an AOL send email the line spacing becomes double. Can this be fixed please?

  17. 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

  19. Search in mail folders not working right

    When I enter a set of letters such as "abc" or "cde" in userid "abcdefg@xyz.com" or the "abc" in the subject "this Labcoat", That email WILL BE FOUND and highlighted..

    BUT, when trying to find "Un" or "know" in "UnknownSendfer@UnknownDomain , These are NEVER Found
    Nor will the seach for "know' in subject line with "do you know" on one of those "unknown..." sender emails

    The search acts as if the blind copy emails ( Unknownsender ) don't exist.

  20. Fix the "Insert a Text File " for email..

    When I use the "Insert a Text file" from the email drop-down,
    ALL comes in without line-breaks and multiple blanks.
    Basically all formatting is lost making the use of this function worthless.
