Trouble with Word Puzzles in e-mail on dial-up

Since Hurricane Ike hit us hard I have lost my DSL service ( nothing else is available so now I m on dial-up - mail plus - I get the word puzzle EVERY TIME I try to reply to a message - I know it's important but it slows me down so much because sometimes I get them wrong - so it takes 10 minutes or more to send ONE reply. Is there anything you can do to maybe slow down that puzzle? I don't mind it every once in a while - but after every message? Don't you think that is excessive? I only belong to ONE Group and have only a few friends - please see if you can help me - I am fixing to throw this computer out the window.

I finally found the option to talk to a live person - who could not help at all - he told me not to put any attachmetns in mail or attach them - and then I would not get all those puzzles - why have fun???? I told him that that is unreasonable since I only have small butterfly and my name in the signature which Yahoo provides in their options - if I could find a better service - I would -

The problem of not receiving all my mail and it bouncing back - he told me to write to a Postmaster (he did supply the URL) but when I try they bounce back.

Yahoo no longer cares about keeping customers - and don't realize how boring it would be if we can never send pictures or some images - but I guess it is what it is.

I do not have the money to join any plan where I have to pay - I'll just try to take care of things myself.

Lost power cord

You should try matching up the amperage (A) and voltage (12V) with a universal adapter. You can find at radio shack or walmart. Make sure you get as close to possible to correct amps, anything more than the correct amps can fry your tv. Volts doesn't have to be exact

Outgoing email

I have had this problem for months, works when it wants to. Customer support pretty much told me if I can access their webmail system then everything is working correctly. I have tried to explain that they aren't the same settings but apparently they dont understand that.

I have tried setting up email again and sometimes that works. Though today all I get is my password isn't correct even though nothing has changed since it worked yesterday

Good luck.

Dial up problems

In order to help you further I need the following questions answered:
What OS are you currently running?
Are you connected to a landline dialup or DSL?
Because if you are using dialup, that is your problem right there! Most of the people who are still using dial connections instead of DSL or Cable will have these problems. Technology is evolving so fast that even the phone companies seem to have trouble tell their customers that dialup is a problem because they are not supporting it anymore. They are selling it, but not supporting it because of DSL, FIOS, and cable.
You may want to upgrade, because even if the problem is resolved you will still encounter problems due to the lack of support!
