When trying to check email from Outlook Express, the modem returns an error (doesn't find it).  If logged onto the internet using Explorer, Outlook can be accessed and works fine.  FYI: Just installed Windows 98

Rj,

  Uninstall and reinstall Outlook Express.  I think you need to reconfigure the program to use with your modem again.  Somewhere during the upgrade, something was screwed up.

Who says it's an upgrade?

rjplach,
When in Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu and select Options...
Click the Dialup tab, select the "Dial this connection" button, and be sure your correct dialup connection is selected from the list.
