  1. Annoying CNN "news flashes"

    Find a way for your staff to not force their news predilections on my desk top. I find the CNN "news flashes" jumping in leftwards from the right side of the screen to be annoying, insulting and bullying. Can such news (real, fake or other) be delivered only by request or permission received?

      • Forwarding Several from My Inbox

        I would like to forward several e-mails at one time from my Inbox to a work e-mail address. Currently, I can only forward one at a time, but with 60 e-mails a day in my AOL Inbox, this gets very tedious. I could understand a reasonable limit on the most that can be forwarded at one instance, but a limit of 'one' is not reasonable.

        • address lines.. enlarge the to: line as we cannot tell if we put a small o or q. it only shows some of the word.. thank you.

          the address line needs to be larger so you can tell what letter was typed. you cannot tell an "o" from a "q" when the bottom or top of a letter is cut off. Thank you.

          • Sweep function

            Please add a sweep function to allow all emails from a selected sender to be deleted with a single click. This feature is available in Outlook and some other email providers, and is very useful for de-cluttering an inbox.

              • Return to current position in Inbox after readi

                When I'm done reading an email and I return to the Inbox, it goes to the START (most recent) of the emails. When I'm going through my emails top-to-bottom and I'm several pages down the list, I then have to repeatedly scroll down to re-locate my place. I think it would make reading emails MUCH easier if you provided a "Back" button to return to the same place in the Inbox as the email that was just read. Thanks, Alan

                • I need a dark background. Have asked already 50x. Give us a night view at least if you do not allow back ground uploads.

                  Please allow us to upload a background, your banner alone is a joke. Google and Yahoo allow you to do that. And if not give us a night view option. I hate a white boring channel. I have asked AOL 50x already. When will it happen?

                  • I need an option to send an email directly to my PC letting me know that I have email in my spam folder on the AOL site.

                    I automatically download email to my PC using the PC mail program, so I don't log into the AOL sire very often. And I forget I should check periodically for spam on the AOL site which is not really spam that I should release to my PC. It would be great to have a spam option to send an email directly to my PC letting me know that I have spam in the AOL folder that I can check.

                      • Limitations on categories

                        Why are there only three categories in the calendar system (Personal, Birthday and Holidays). It would be beneficial to have others such as work, meetings and travel, etc. or at least a way to color the three categories differently.

                            • Shut off Autosave function of the Draft or at least give the option to shut it off - annoying; or let us manually save a draft!

                              I want to shut off the "autosave" function of an email draft. It's annoying and the autosaving is interfering with the sending function. At a minimum give us the option of manually saving a draft. We used to be able to shut it off under the Compose settings, but I can't see it. I'm using a desktop. Please shut it off!

                                • How can I make chronological list of all my emails with a contact?

                                  My idea to to have AOL enable me to make a chronological list of my emails with a contact over time. I would think this should have been a feature since I started this account 20 years ago. My second idea is to just leave AOL permanently and take my emails with me. But AOL won't allow this either. Why does AOL disrespect its members by making it difficult to communicate with an actual person at AOL???

                                  Oh, it seems I MUST accept your terms. Why doesn't AOL believe it MUST treat us with respect???

                                      • Bruises on Women's Faces in Ads

                                        I do not enjoy seeing altered pictures of people's faces in the ad section. Seeing women with bruises added to their faces is disturbing. If I can't figure out how to stop seeing those everytime I look at my mail, I will switch to another provider.
