Why would IE say "can't find server" if you can ping, browse the mail server?

    Running XP SP2, Outlook Express 6, Norton Anti-Virus 2005...

    Client of mine can ping email server, and browse (there is a web interface for web mail) same server via IE, but OE claims it cannot find server.

    Deleted cookies, emptied cache, rebooted, disabled firewall & anti-virus, dang OE keeps claiming the server isn't out there despite the evidence otherwise.

    Any other ideas?

    IE. Tools->Internet Options->Security Tab. Restricted sites?
    Hosts file?
    OE->Tools->Options->Security Tab. Check off Internet Zone
