I can get on to my webmail through cox. I've called cox and everything is working on their end. I have tried to reinstall outlook (don't know if I did it right) but that didint work. I've also installed THUNDERBIRD for email and am getting a similar error.

is it possible that in my virus removal a file got deleted that should have? anyone know a way to fix this?
