Upgrading from 98SE to ME loses internet/e-mail

  Koz 22:00 05 Jul 2004

My PC has 98SE and I access the internet/e-mail through cable (blueyonder). Everything is fine in 98SE but when I run the Windows ME upgrade disk the pop3 and smtp servers cannot be found for internet/e-mail access. In ME the account set ups look okay and correspond exactly to those in 98SE before upgrade. Weird!. Any ideas about how to fix. All other aspects of ME work - it's just the e-mail/internet

Does ME recognise your modem? I had 28K modem in win98 and ME did not recognise it so I upgraded to 56K....TT

Thanks for this. I aam using a cable connection with download at 750K (blueyonder ASDL)so the modem comments do not look relevant. I ned to try something else.
