Hi, If you had everything redone...as in formatted> you will have to make your accounts in Outlook Express, (type in the webmail in and out addresses). This is for your ISP email...you can also get other email from 3rd party programs to work with Outlook.

1.Open Outlook Express
2.Go To Tools
3.Accounts
4.Mail Tab
5.Highlight Your account (by clicking once)
6.To the right of that click on properties.
7.Click the Servers Tab
8.Change incoming Mail POP3 to pop.(your server)9.Change outgoing mail SMTP to smtp.(your server)10.Click Apply
11.Click close
12.Close Outlook Express
13.Reopen Outlook express and Check Mail

Comcast support should be able to help you? There are many users of Comcast that frequent this forum so someone may be able to help you here, too.

Be sure you visit Windows Updates and get completely updated... this includes Outlook Express. You will have to do XP SP1 before you can get SP2... though you can delay on SP2 and indeed you should until all your programs are ready.
