Timeout error despite reinstalling Internet Explorer 6 several times

Hello

For 2 weeks plus now, I have had trouble logging in into the email account provided by my Internet service provider (ISP) ie. www. ctinets.com . I have also had trouble checking my hotmail. I understand from my ISP that their ctinets. account and the hotmail account share the same or a similar server. I tried doing everything my ISP asked of me. For instance, I tried adjusting cookie settings under "privacy" in "internet options" by blocking first and third party cookies. I then tried to reinstall Internet Explorer 6 several times on different days since my ISP thinks the problem is with the browser. Despite having done all this ,nothing works. I find that as soon as i enter my password and ID on the webpage and click login, the logging in process does not even have a chance to take place because the timeout error page appears so fast. I do not know why this happens.  The weird thing though is that I am still able to browse the web fully and access my yahoo and other email sites. You probably want to know what installations i have- I have been using Internet Explorer 6 since April 2003. I am using Windows 98 on a 56k dial up service provided by my ISP. I own an intel pentium II computer. I do not know what to do. Please help me. Thanks.

You can try a differant browser and see if that's the problem like your ISP claims.
www.opera.com  is one.
