  2. Stop scamming us with AOL tech problems we are then supposed to pay aol tech to fix

    Get rid of these horrible ads. I would be a willing victim of AOL extortion and pay not to have them. I was a paid member until i got all those awful ads slowing my computer relentlessly. I now hate google and verizon and any company adverstis ing. Since paying a fee does not remove them....I stopped being a paying member. Then both my attach and insert functions stopped working. Aol creates a tech problem and then wants us to pay to have AOL tech fix it. Nice scam . Should be reproted I will research how to do that…

  3. Make it possible for ALL MY EMAILS, NEWS STORIES, ETC., APPEAR LARGE FONT AND IN BOLD. R AND IN BOLD

    USING CAPS MAKES IT EASIER TO READ. DOES NOT INDICATE HOSTILITY OR ANGER.
    PLEASE MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR CUSTOMERS WITH LIMITED EYESIGHT TO HAVE ALL WRITING IN LARGER FONTS (18 GREAT) AND IN BOLD. JUST LIST OPTIONS SIMPLY SUCH AS: WANT LARGER FONT? WANT IN BOLD? WANT EVERYTHING IN BOLD AND LARGER FONT? MAKE IT THIS SIMPLE. I AM 86.

  4. As Usual AOL creates two problems when there is only one.

    I am a paying member so AOL offers live help. But one has to wait forever for the live help, so in addition to seeking a solution AOL frustrates the user by being forever creaky in its response.

    Suggestion #1. Since live help is wasteful of the users time, why not provide a link for email directly on the "seeking help" page.

    Suggestion #2. Why I'm writing this in the first place. I am getting increasing numbers of SPAM with the address that starts out UnknownSender@.... The remainder of the address varies. Is there some way I can automatically…

  5. Increase tech knowledge/level for Help Desk

    There ought to be a way for Tech Assistant on a call to refer a problem to a certified webmaster. We experienced a problem whereby the email auto-complete for an address would ONLY print BOTH the Contact Name and the Email address. This made it impossible to send certain group messages when I only wanted folks to see email addresses, not names. The telephone tech assistant did all she could AND received NO HELP from whoever the Level One person was. You really need to enable a referral (for a subsequent call, if necessary) so that some resolution can be…

  6. Give local news on AOL Homepage Where It Says Local News

    Ever since you got Yahoo to do your Local News on AOL Home Page I am NOT getting local news. You used to use a local newspaper or TV station for local News but today for instance I got Ohio News. Other days it is news for other parts of the United States,. I know Verizon now owns AOL and Yahoo but Yahoo is NOT giving LOCAL NEWS. I have written to you earlier about this but still getting news that is NOT LOCAL. Please correct this or get rid of LOCAL NEWS part of news page.

  9. You sent out messages that might as well have been in a foreign language. I guess I will have to see what happens at the end of October.

    We're not all Computer savy. I can drive my car, but I can't begin to understand how to change oil, sparkplugs, brake fluid, etc. Think about it! I've stayed with AOL since the 90's, and have even paid for access all these years, even though I've been told by others I'm wasting my money. I've paid thinking you would take care of changes etc.

  11. Explain choices provided by AOL to assist customers "problem solve" an issue.

    I received an email informing me that my email may need authenticating. For those of us who don't understand what that means, it would be helpful for AOL to provide some selections or drop downs that I can select for an explanation or clarification of what I need to do. It doesn't help to offer me choices if I don't understand which choice (potential remedy) is applicable to my specific issue. Although I understand the challenges that COVIG19 presents, it is irresponsible for AOL not to respond to phone calls, emails, or Chat, when you offer these features as a…

  13. Your app ***

    I have had this account since aol was founded. Now I am considering moving to another provider. This decision, on your part, is absurd and problematic. I already get laughed at for maintaining my aol account, so your decision is to make it worse?

  17. Allow for bulk deletion of old emails such as by dates, year or number

    Many of us have lots of old emails in our inbox (eg 20,000) . There needs to be a method of clearing out old emails either by year or by a date range . It is too tedious to delete old emails one at a time
