Years ago, AOL stopped working and didn't warn you that the INCOMING SAVED EMAIL or the MAIL YOU SENT filled up and locked up AOL. I try to remember to delete them occasionally ,,
BUT - what would really help: A Delete Older Than a Given Date Option. Either one I set and leave or one I enter when I need
I don't recall ever seeing this, but it sounds like something I'd like to use!
Come on guys,, Gathering Feedback for OVER A YEAR!!
This would be more than a "nice toy" if you add the COUNT of occurrences found, it'd be a VERY USEFUL FUNCTION!
& Putting the input area in the TOP BAR would be easier to find.
Searching for a string in the top window does NOT show number found.
Nor does it show when NONE are found.
Also, placing it on the bottom edge NEEDS something (Color?) to be added to make it stand out.
That old 9.8 desktop had an 'easy-to-find' input area, this one - hidden on the extreme bottom line wasn't easy to locate for some time..
It is still missing the count of found and ZERO if not found...
The box presented does not take a copy/paste item.
Since Feb 2018 -- STILL MISSING in Sept 2018: EDIT & REMOVE Hyperlink on email drop-down..
Just clicked on one of the "empty" hyperlinked words and it worked.. But the drop down shows that I can ADD a Hyperlink (old AOL indication there was none) -- AND no hyperlink is shown when mouse over... ALL in ALL - just a messy confusing way that was never examined by the programmer responsible for this.. Like so many other bugs in this "Gold" (should be called "Lead")
Under Settings, General .... there is no "toolbar tab" that I can find.
From January to December is about 11 months too long waiting for this function!!
You obviously don't use your computers for much work like some people out here...
IT IS A ROYAL PAIN to have to keep UNSETTING what you've forced on us users.
Since JANUARY of 2018, This REQUIREMENT has been forgotten..
It is aggravating to have to retype my long URLs to save my banking, financial and bills..
PLEASE, stop RANKING it and FIX THIS.
When I have to download a number of files, each download requires me to reset back to the directory I want all those files to go to.
LEAVE THE LAST DIRECTORY USED, DO NOT reset it!
When I have a number of files needing to be downloaded - it becomes A MAJOR PAIN In THE A** to have to keep resetting the directory path!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE -- I asked in January, and it is now JULY and you still have gold reverting to the WRONG DIRECTORY when downloading files!!
LEAVE THE LAST ONE I SET!!!
It is a PAIN having to constantly re-enter *MY* directory path!!
When copying or replying to an email, the copied text may contain hyperlinks that potentially could cause harm, and need to be REMOVED ..
Missing since Beta release 0001 and current (2024)
Come on guys.. What's so hard to fix? Go look at the old code in 9.2 if you can't figure it out,,
This was in the old AOL Desktop v9 and earlier.
You've been "Gathering Feedback" ever since GOLD.. FIX IT!
Currently, attempting to replace an existing hyperlink with blanks WILL NOT WORK.. This leads to having to delete and retype the entire hyperlinked words and phrases
When text has a 'hidden' URL underlying it, and I wish to remove it from the copied reply, I can't. The old 9.2 option to "Remove Hyperlink" is missing from Gold.
The Insert Hyperlink is there, but the Remove is missing. Using "Insert" to 'remove' any existing URL gives an error message about inserting a missing 'http://www.'; ?!?!? and no option other than Cancel or OK, no 'NO'
I believe the old 9.2 would NOT present the "Remove Hyperlink" option WHEN THERE WAS NO HYPERLINK in the pointed to text
I originally requested this back in February (it is now July)
Now, when you mouse over a highlighted and other-colored word, which could be a possible HYPERLINKED word, the drop down does NOT show Remove Hyperlink. It DOES HAVE - ADD HYPERLINK - this is the opposite of how AOL use to work.
The new Gold way makes it appear that there is NO Hyperlink, and one can be added. This change confuses the use of hidden Hyperlinks.
I prefer NEW mail at the top -- but better yet, I LIKE the option that allows everyone to set their own preference!!
Sept 2018 --- This is still broken.
This issue, as well as EVERY OTHER REPORTED Issue is still not fixed.
If AOL Beta is NOT Scheduled to ever be finished, please advise
Quick find doesn't find USERIDs, or portions of them, against saved emails in user created AOL folders.
It does find searches in the Subject line,, But I need to find ALL of a given ID, as I did on previous AOL desktop
Looking for USERIDS in SENT files does not find ANY characacters
This is working!! Thanks.
Is there more "PLANNED"? Or don't you delete the "FIXED" suggestions?? ;-)
Half done.. From HTML to TEXT retains formatting, BUT TEXT to HTML strips all new-line, or double line formatting from the Text to HTML conversion.
in 1899, Convert to Text, in order to reset bad HTML, then back to HTML,
all lines feeds disappear causing single and multiple spaces to be lost.
A list becomes one very very long sentence.
FIX THIS, It's been BROKEN from the beginning of this Beta
P.S. This error also occurs with REPLY or COPY/PASTE of HTML text ..
I copy/pasted text someone emailed to me, into another email I was writing to another person.
The formated text was not aligned properly, and I used a technique that worked on the old AOL.
I changed it to Text, then changed it back to HTML via the dropdown.
All was lost, no linefeeds, no blank lines, all one giant run-on sentence
Still broken in 1630
Thank you for your feedback. Our engineering team is currently working on fixing this issue.
As a workaround, you can right-click on the attachment preview and select “Save image as” in order to save a copy of the image.
It's been quite a while (Jun 2018) since you guys wrote: ".. currently working on fixing this issue" ... and it's still occuring. in Sept.
I like that you display the attached images AS IF THEY WERE IMBEDDED in the email -- BUT as my relatives send images both ways, imbedded and/or attached, and even both in one email, I'm prone to click on the image in order to save it, causing your unhelpful and disrupting error msg via a web page pop-up.
Why not just a simple pop-up allowing the same as if I clicked on the download image??
I see that dates have now appeared on the feedback items ... THANK YOU...
I'd like to see not only dates on these feedback, but also the 11.xxxx release they apply to.
Well, the old Desktop didn't re-highlight it. But I found that the phone app did make it look unread again. That makes it easier to catch those that I want to go back to
