My email has stopped working. I can send emails from it but cant receive them, same with launching outlook express it comes up with 'an error was encountered' or similar message.

I have reloaded windows (98) downloaded updates etc but still does it. I am pretty sure it is something to do with the number of emails in there - 1700 messages - 108 of them unread, and I cant open the inbox.

Any ideas on where they will be stored so I can either retrieve or delete them?

Another clue is that I can boot up on win98 or 2000, everything works on 2000. The versions of Outlook Express are 4.72(win98) and 5.0 (2000). Is that likely to cause a problem as it is possible that the problem has only occured since trying OE on 2000.
