At last got on the Web but still no e-mail

Okay, History:
Win 98
Outlook Express5/6
My son messed some of the settings about and the computer would not find the modem about 3to 4 weeks ago. Then the system started to freeze up and shut down itself. Bad sections then started to appear each time scan disc came on.
SO I wiped the hard drive and reinstalled.
My computer is talking to the modem now and of course I am on the web, BUT it will still not let me receive e-mail.

Have you checked the configuration in Accounts (Mail tab) and your POP3 etc details?

Try sending yourself an e-mail and see what happens - it should come back within a few seconds normally.

It also depends whether anyone has sent you an e-mail..-)

Password what?

If it says the Password is incorrect then i guess the password is incorrect!

Okay, so I have forgot the password!
Please tell me what to do.
Do I have to get in touch by phone to the isp or what to get a new password

if your mail is with your isp you will have to contact them for password or they will direct you to part of their website.

you will need to contact your isp if that is who you have the mail account.

Isn't your password the same as your ISP connection version? Same for username.
