I have a rediffmail account.
My system OS is windows XP professional(desktop).
After system restoring few days back, I am not able to access my rediffmail account. everytime i enter the username and password and click login, it says, "your session in invalid/timed out. Please login again".
  I have a laptop with the same OS, but I am able to access my rediffmail account in this system without any problem.
 can anyone suggest me what might be the problem?
Appreciate your advice.

Hi vijisu,

Have you tried to system restore to a forward time .. it is a 2 way process and see if that would solve

Have you tried to delete your rediffmail account (just the email account) and create it again to see if that would help

Can you check if the account settings on both the desktop and laptop for this account in OE is the same ?

Try to temporarily disable anti-virus , firewall in your desktop and see if that would help.

Try to increase the server timeouts for rediffmail account in OE going to tools > accounts > properties > advanced settings and check if that would help

I have tried deleting cookies and files in the temp. internet files. but still it doesn't work. But it works in Linux(installed in the 2nd Hard Drive) and also the laptop which has the same configuration as my desktop.
 very confusing...!!!!
Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Did you say you are checking your email account (rediffmail) going to rediffmail.com or using email client ?

If it is webmail then try to turn ON zonealarm and check using a different browser and see what happens
