I have a network connection between a Host Win 98 PC and a client Win XP PC. The network connection works fine. I had to install file sharing software because I don't have Win98SE, and ended up with a trial version of Wingate. I can access the internet from the XP PC fine. But Outlook Express comes up with error No. 0x800CCC0F every time. I did a net search for that and all I got out of that was Nortons firewall setting on the XP needed to be "automatic". I changed that but still could not send or receive e-mail. I checked the settings under Accounts and Options in Outlook Express and they all look fine. Wingate Help is of no use.

Any help would be much appreciated!
