You didn't give your location or your country so it's hard to answer.  
Also you didn't say whether you want dial-up, DSL, cable, or other.  
I've heard things about shellworld.  I think they are but 
I'm not sure.  I use Cox cable here and they're fine for me.  I'm not 
sure what you mean about the junk they indulge in.  Either you connect 
to a news or pop3 server or you don't, so I don't really see what Lynx 
has to do with it.  I assume you mean that you want their web site to be 
accessible with Lynx.  In that case, you're probably out of luck.  I 
know of no ISP who will email statements.  Almost all of them will be 
web-based via a control panel or billing system.  I think Cox is that 
way but it isn't my account so I don't know.  Perhaps a better way would 
be to just go with whatever ISP you have now that's cheap and get a 
separate web hosting account.  Even if you don't have your own site, you 
would get a better email server and a probably more accessible web site, 
control panel, billing system, etc.  You could try TRK Hosting in that 
case but I never used them with Lynx.  I 
think you are expecting too much by wanting a floppy disk mailed to you 
every month and I really don't see that happening.  Another idea would 
be to pay for a year at a time with an ISP or web host.  That way you 
only get a statement per year.  The best for that is fatcow which gives 
you a spam filter.  I used both of those hosting 
companies at various times and they were fine, depending on your needs.  
Since this doesn't entirely relate to Linux, maybe you should write off
