Here’s the story. I’m running a PC on Windows 98, and from the first day that it surfed the web it was on a connection diet of Ethernet only. So everything works fine, no hints of trouble, and then I’m done with finals.
I lug the computer to my room, take off the Ethernet cable, hook up the modem line, download the local ISP software, and start to work on the Internet. Woohoo! I can still work like I did at school - use Outlook Express to get e-mail, access the University of Missouri homepage to get vital information for my upcoming res life job…yay.
2 days later…Outlook Express no longer functions as an active e-mail program because my POP mail connection fails. I can’t access any web page associated with the MU servers, not even my webmail access. AAAAAAAAAAGH! ahem So I e-mail the wonderful :rolleyes: tech service helpdesk, and they explain that I will just have to reinstall everything.
I really don’t want to do this. I’m subscribed to many listservs for various classes, clubs, and jobs, and my saved e-mail is a journal of my time at school. I think my computer’s just pissed at the MU servers - I checked my connections, settings, ISP numbers, everything. The Outlook Express failure was pretty much expected, but not being able to access anything from the MU server is just crazy. Any suggestions??? Thank you for any help you might be able to offer!
