    I am and have been using AOL9.1 on my desktop computer (Windows XP MCE, SP3, P4, 2Gig RAM, 545Gig HD, 1Gig processor).

    Recently my email settings have been acting up. I usually have those settings set to sort my emails from oldest to newest, but it is vice-versa. So, when I attempt to change the setting to where I want it (sorting oldest to newest), it does change it, but when I shut down the program, or log-off, then log back on again, the settings never stay set - they always revert back to sorting "newest to oldest". This is only happening with 1 out of the 4 screennames I have.

    Has anyone experienced this problem before, or know how to fix it, short of dumping AOL?

    i wouldnt dump aol but aol is known for not working right half the time. thats one of its charms. lol! if its not a big deal for u just be glad your other emails are working right.lets just say that aol is noted for its many problems and until something replaces aol i guess those of us who have it just have to live with it for now.
