I am unable to read any e-mail on Windows XP. Instead,
the message says "unable to connect to the socks proxy"
What is a "socks proxy" and how do I eliminate it?

A socks proxy is a gateway to the internet. A computer that directs requests for internet resources. If you don't have a proxy server then this is how you remove the option.

From the control panel select INTERNET OPTIONS
Click on the connections tab
click on LAN Settings
Make sure that the only checked box is
AUTOMATICALLY DETECT SETTINGS.

JenniferLore,

Thank you so very much for the rapid reply. I will follow your directions right now and hope I can retrieve my email...and everything else that the socks proxy has prevented me from using.

Sincerely.
