Email doesn't work on a client on a networked comp

Hi my wife has a laptop with win2k, which connects to the internet through my pc, she uses oe for mail but most of the time she gets a timeout message.

I've tried extending the waiting time and tried using outlook but the problem stays the same. The only article that i can find on Microsoft's kb relates to problems with norton antivirus (where you disable email checking).

I've tried disabling email scanning (which I'm not happy about) on her antivirus package (escan) but there is no difference.

Any ideas please?
