    I've been offline for a few months now... my access was a casualty of my little war going on with AT&T (read SATAN). Now, I finally got back online with a free trial for AOL (read Son of Satan) and I want to find some reasonably priced dial up access with no crap attached. Any recommendations?

    I just want access with webmail, I don't need....
    Spam filter
    Spyware filter
    Popup blocker
    Instant Messsenger
    Proprietary Browsers
    Parental Controls
    Content Filtering
    Any "crap" speed up service
    Stupid games on demand
    Idiot voices telling me I've got mail
    Top ten cat food recipes on my home page

    Just dial up access and webmail.... that's all.

    for mail get gmail, can not get a better webmail for free.

    you can use even aol for dialup if that is your only choice. you can configure the computer to dial up even aol server without loathing their thingamajig

    give your zipcode and i can do a search for a palatable service

    do a search on these. seems for most they want your full phone number to do that. most here seem under 6 bucks. read the contracts.

    I can send you a gmail invite. send me email to inviteme [at] russiananimation.com if you want
    do not use the dial up service webmail since this ties you to their service and and then you have to keep paying them even if they change their contracts on you like by raising prices

    Thanks, I'll check out those services, I don't suppose you have personal experience with any?

    Now that you mention it, I used to have a gmail account, and since I never actually closed it, I probably still do. I'll just have to dig around for the info and password and stuff.

    i have not used a dialup since about 6 years ago (to think of it I am happily paying about 50 a month for my broadband. that comes out to 600 a year. damn i feel like somone is robbing me now], so no i do not. you can do a google search for [isp name + review] and you may get some reports.
