Glad to see you're still with us ;-)

For Typo3 to be able to read/write your files it should have those rights.
It appears your apache runs as 'nobody' and you are able to post files as

Hence your fileadmin dir and all files and dirs contained within should
have something like the following permissions (at least the r and w for
files, and the d and x for dirs);

drwxrwxr-x   5 yourname    nobody        4096 Apr 13 00:30 fileadmin

Since you only use your host for webhosting and thus only place and
retrieve files that will have to be accessed by the apache process, I
thinkt it is no more than reasonable for your hosting provider to make
'nobody' (as opposed to '?') your default group.

You might also want to as your provider to set up the default 'umask' so
that all files you upload or create will be created with at least;

Or maybe you can teach your ftp client such behaviour?

Don't give up just yet.
