  2. You broke it

    This "new" version sucks and you seem to have made it permanent. Now it takes 2 steps to do things that used to take 1 click.
    Can't choose a font that I want.
    Why have pages when scrolling worked fine etc. etc. etc........
    It wasn't broken and you turned it into garbage.

  3. I want the real basic e-mail back, not some "new" and not improved version.

    All of a sudden I had been switched to the new mail. I switched back to basic but it wasn't what I had earlier today. There is an ad in my inbox that I can't delete. I pay for AOL. I should not be subjected to ads. Where is the drop down for me to pick which page of e-mails I want to go to. I now have to arrow through all the pages.

    People use the basic for a reason. We just want a plain e-mail. If we wanted all the bells and whistles, we'd use Outlook.

  4. Return to the original mail format, please. Thank you.

    It appears that many of your subscribers prefer the original Mail format and would appreciate a return to the tried and true standard. The option is offered to return to the original but it doesn't work. Thank you.

  7. The "Basic Mail" option is not "classic mail" and still eliminates the functionality needed by super-users. Get a grip!

  9. GET RID OF THAT TERRIBLE NEW VERSION

    First of all, what happened to the Wallpaper? Everything is WHITE and even though I switched back to the OLD Version, it doesn't look right. I cannot find the Wallpaper. That was so much fun to use it. Furthermore, I hope you don't switch to that HORRIBLE NEW VERSION permanently. If that happens, I will quite AOL and transfer everything elsewhere.

  12. I want to go back to my classic email setting, this version isn't working for me. You have not got any formatting in the 'Compose' email tab

    I want to go back to the Classic Format of my inbox. You do not have any formatting choices or anything on this new inbox. I don't like it and I want to use the classic version. Why can't I find anything in settings to set up how to compose an email. Not happy at all.

  13. QUIT MESSING AROUND WITH THE EMAIL FORMAT!!!! RETURN IT TO THE ORIGINAL AND JUST STOP WITH TRYING TO CHANGE IT!!!!!

    HAVE YOUR "AMAZINGLY TALENTED" IT STAFF TO LEAVE THE FORMAT OF THE EMAIL ALONE.....................JUST STOP TRYING TO CHANGE IT AND RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS FORMAT. MOVE ON TO SOMETHING USEFUL LIKE SOLVING WORLD HUNGER. AND YES, I AM MASSIVELY UNHAPPY THAT AOL CONTINUE TO TRY TO CHANGE THE FORMAT, THINKING IN SOME DELUSIONAL WORLD THAT IT IS BEING IMPROVED. IT IS NOT AN IMPROVEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. For everyone that hates the new format AOL forced on us, Proton mail looks almost identical to the old AOL format.

    For everyone that hates the new format, Proton mail looks almost identical to the old AOL format without all the ******** "enhancements" no one wanted from AOL.

  19. changing mail back to "unread" doesn't make them darker again as initial "unread" emails are

    Emails that I changed after reading, back to "unread,"
    When I go to see if they were made "unread" they are not darker as when unread. I can't make the read emails stay unread when I change them to "unread".
