    Although I've not experienced this particular issue and don't use Outlook Express, I can make an educated guess as to the source of the problem.

    I assume browsing works just peachy.

    Outlook and OE both have to resolve the server name somehow when retrieving email. You could try using the internal loopback address for the email server name, such as:[host_pc_name]

    Or specify the host PC's name in the proxy settings, since that's really what it is.

    Is it just Outlook Express that won't work, or are there other Internet-dependent apps that fail?

    can you tell me the steps for this because I'm not really that good with outlook express. Also if for most internet applications such as icq and messenger I can not receive files but I can send them to other computers besides that they all work fine
