  3. Please show destination Links

    In the old AOL desktop if you hovered over a link it showed the true detination link

    This web based system doesn't do it. Is it possible to reintroduce on the web based system
    ?
    In these days of Phishing, spam and fruad it would be very useful

  9. I used to be able to insert PNG files. Now it is not working

    I used to be able to insert PNG files and it will appear in the exact location inserted. Now it is not working anymore - not in the location and not anywhere else in the email for that matter.

  10. Can't send email with attachments

    Without warning, twice over past year, AOL stopped sending emails with attachments of ANY size. Happens from Safari and Firefox, happens from old iMac and newer MacBook Air. Past technical solutions are not addressing this problem. What causes this problem? And how does one fix it? I've been an AOL customer since 1989. May have to leave...

  12. Stop censoring one side of the aisle, all here now that is not pro communist leftist Biden and Democrats is censored, AOL is racist now

    AOL now will not post simple pictures but allows all that is from the left and Democrats only uncensored, calling the President names etc, AOL will now lose for one sided censoring

  13. Stop censoring non violent and non vulgar speach. Ever heard of the 1st amendment that you hide behind?

    I posted Hello on a forum and was rejected due to your BS terms of censorship

  14. Ordering attachments

    I tell a story with my attachments; until recently, they were received & seen in the order by which I selected each attachment; now they're all out of order, and displayed in clumps rather than in a series. There's nothing in "options" or "preferences" for correcting this.

  15. attachment review

    Title: Review suspicious attachments
    I called Tech support to inquire on an email that I received with an attachment from a friend that was suspicious. My friend did not respond to me. I would like to forward the email to an AOL tech support person that can open the attachment in a secure setting so I can know whether the attachment is malware. I had attempted to open the attachment on my iPhone and closed the email a few seconds after and I am concern that I may have downloaded a malware. Please respond. Thanks.

  17. Your articles are so bias I would drop you in a moment if I did not have a verizon account that I am looking into changing.

    Please remember that more then 50% of the US are conservative and do not like your total left reporting or should I say editorializing. .

  19. Cannot download files from E-Mail using Google Chrome...Pdf, Doc. XL, mp4

    I cannot open attachments for Doc, Pdf, XL, MP4....Only Jpeg because the photo or document appear within the E-Mail. I Uninstalled Google Chrome and then Re-Installed.....and this did not solve the problem. All of the 'Files Names' were selected in Chrome to appear in the E-Mails. Any Suggestions ....Anyone else having this Issue ? ? ?
