Please read beyond the first line of text

Do you also have this problem with people? When they aren't able to read beyond the first sentence you wrote them? For example like here:
User: I have a question with your game engine, it doesn't do XX when I do YY.
Me: Maybe you could try to do AAA, this might help.
If not, try BBB, or alternatively, you can always do CCC.
User: I've now tried, but AAA doesn't help! Help me!!
Me: As I wrote, you could also try BBB. And if that doesn't help, try CCC, that should do the trick.
User: Thanks for your answer! BBB doesn't help! That really sucks!
Me: Did you try CCC?
User: Thanks! I've solved it now.
See? The problem could have been solved with 5 emails less. That's 70%!
I regularly have email exchanges like this. But also for private stuff via SMS / messenger and sometimes even phone calls. It doesn't seem to be related to age or technical knowledge. Seems just like lazyness.
Not sure how to solve this. Probably reading is the problem. Maybe I should start answering via youtube video. Or I should use a bigger font. Not sure.
