System restore?
But Office 2003 and use Office Outook.
really you should of hit 'r' to repair the system.

Also, it mite be at the other end and not yours.

Hi sgtdibble,

if you open outlook express and go to....tools......accounts.......mail

have you anything in the box?

If not go to the home site of the internet user you are using and they should provide you with the settings you need.

have you tried your ISP support?

Windows 98 does not have System Restore nor an R to repair the system.

you need to go to your outlook express tools, account, then add a new account, in the boxes fill in pop.xxxxxxxxxxx whatever your provider is and the same for the smtp.xxxxxxx again the name of your provider, eg: mine is "pop.dsl.pipex.com" and "smtp.dsl.pipex.com"
these allow the computer to send and receive mail through outlook. just follow the step by step instructions as you go along and put in the appropriate information.

hope this is of some help
