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

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

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