My MOM Used AOL mail, for her it was the AOL news pictures loading every few seconds in the backround. If you press the pause button in between the left and right arrow boxes in the news box (under the pictures) you will turn off that function, which should speed up your typing, as every time a news item switches it causes a delay which may miss a keystroke, etc.
Clean your keyboard, try to blow it out with compressed air, and also take a barely wet rag or Q-tip and clean out the gunk. You might be able to pop the keys off and clean in there, make sure the power is off or even unplug it. Even try to unplug the keypad and plug it in, and/or reboot the device.
