Customer Question
I have AOL for...

I have AOL for my email address. Up until a few days ago the entire email from the sender showed on the left of my mail screen. Now it only shows 2 letters. It is difficult to see who things are from and very time consuming. Is there any way to change this back to the way that it was?

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access AOL? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

All but mostly a PC using Internet explorer or my IPhone.My IPhone shows the entire name so it is just the PC that is giving my problems like this.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Rebooting is about it. I did not want to mess with the settings

On the far left it only shows two letters or characters where it used to show the entire address or most of it anyway. Thanks

I did that this morning but I can do it again. Where do I send it? I sent to the place that you have been texting me from and it did not go thru.

Never mind. This is just way too complicated.
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 7 months ago
If so, I have to say that why Remote Assistance is required and even necessary, though extra free applies. Simply because it does save time, reduce effort and give best user experience. If you agree, I may offer your 50% off at only extra $20 USD. This offer is only valid from my side, if you request from your side, it is always $39 USD without any discount.

No thanks

No problem. I opt out and let you seek for more opinions from other experts. You have a good day.

Hello Customer, Can you please upload a screenshot here so I can see what you are experiencing? Also are you experiencing the same issue with all senders that send you an email or is this only from a particular sender? Thank you.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I do not know how to send you a screenshot and it is from all senders. I am going to contact AOL tomorrow. Thanks for trying.
