If its just Outlook Express you can try repairing it by:
FOR XP
>Click Start
>Click Run
>Type "sfc scannow" w/o quotes and press OK
...WinXP disk is required...

FOR WIN98
>Click Start
>Click Settings
>Click Control Panel
>Click Add/Remove Programs
>Find Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE is correct app not a typo)
>Click Remove
>Click Repair
>Make a Sandwich and wait.

Misc

>make sure your account info is correct in OE, to include incoming/outgoing servers, account name, password, ports and whether or not you should be using SPA.
