About E-mail Preferences Settings:
Internet Explorer will use Outlook Express 5.02 or EUDORA 5.0 as a mail program.
In the Outlook Express Preferences click on the "Proxies" tab and when the Proxies Preference panel opens check the box labeled "Web" and in the Address line enter the same proxy number and in the Port box the same port number as all your other settings(it may already be entered there).
**DO NOT check the box labeled "Mail" or Outlook Express will not be able to access your mail account.
