    For some reason, since Safari updated this week I can not download PDF files or any other attachments. If I go into the old version there is no problem. Please advise how to fix.

  4. 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

  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...

  11. automatic local path inclusion not wanted in attachments

    When I send an attachment, AOL includes the fall path and directory of the file. How can I only just send the file name? This was the default in AO up till a number of months ago. Not anymore. The offered instructions of AOL below do not work.

  14. How can AOL.com mail open .docx attachments without first downloading? Please advise. Thank you.

    Unlike IE, AOL.com mail fails to open .docx attachments using Firefox, without first downloading these files. How can this be fixed? Please advise. Thank you.

  18. Auto Save Attachments

    Give the option to open or save attachments.. I hate that your webmail auto downloads attachments to my devices!! That should be my choice. It should open in either the reading pane of the email, or another window on the browser. NOT TO MY COMPUTER STORAGE. I have to use the email for work and it is truly a pain and inconvenience to have to download all of the attachments and then search for them and delete them!

  19. savings email attachments

    Need an easy way to save attachments without having to download, open preview, then save to designated folder. MacMail allows a one-step 'save' click to accomplish this when viewing the email

  20. dropbox

    On mobile AOL mail, it does not offer the option to surf Dropbox for files. It will only allow a very limited set of folders on my phone. Please add this functionality.
