Being very frustrated with not being able to receive attachments in my E-mail I called AOL service (800-827-6364) and talked with a lady who did not seem to care about my frustrations (she probably had too many of her own). When I could not give her the date that the problem started, she said that if I did not know when it started there was nothing she could do for me. Well, if a server can't serve, why have the server? So, I asked for the number that I could cancel my account. She connected me with that department. A "charmer," of great practice, came on line after I had listened several long minutes of what a great server AOL could do for me. (Yeah right! They could not even serve attachments to my E-mail) My frustration was really heating up. I didn't care if I ever heard of AOL again. The "charmer," I do not remember his name, was great. I did not believe all that he said, but he said it in such a charming way and was so much fun. His statement, "What idiot told you that? We don't have to know the date of your problem, we just need what the problem.

I have a special friend in the technical department (I grinned) who will be able to fix you right up. "Yes, I see he can, he is smiling and nodding his head." (Yeah right, he probably is not even in the same office. But it was funny and I enjoyed the conversation.) He also pretended to be as mad as I was, this I did not believe, but it did soothe me down and that was his job and he did it well. I talked with a technician named Robert, and he was very understanding and by now I no longer was mad. (Come on, read the rest of this, you will soon see why I am upset again.) I still do not have "Attachments" but the technical department asked for 3 days to solve the problem. I, at least, know they are trying to help me. This morning I received a letter from the service department asking how the lady did. I cannot remember her name. I wrote a reply. The form did not come through, so I E-mailed them telling of my frustration. I WAS ASTOUNDED. WHEN I TRIED TO MAIL THE "REPLY" A MESSAGE CAME UP. "ERROR" "THIS DEPARTMENT WAS NO LONGER ACCEPTING ANY MAIL FROM YOUR ADDRESS." NOW I AM MAD ALL OVER AGAIN. WHAT KIND OF GAMES IS AOL PLAYING? I THOUGHT YOU WANTED TO KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS. WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO PUT UP WITH HASSLING WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER SERVERS.

Please be advised that I've been blocked from receiving nor able to send emails. I've been a member of AOL since 1994. I'd like to be able to retreive documents & other reelated data. I have a home business & would very much like to utilize this site account.
