I recently wiped my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP because I was having some problems and I just needed a clean slate. Everything has gone swimmingly except I've noticed that whenever I put my computer into standby mode I am unable to connect check email using Outlook Express. I have no other problem connecting to the internet (I'm writing this after just having come out of standby mode), and Windows is completely up to date as far as I know. I never had this problem prior to reinstalling XP, so it's obviously connected to that. Can anyone help?
Details: Outlook Express 6, Dell Dimension 4600, Windows XP, cable modem (Toshiba PCX100U).
EDIT: I just tried shutting down OE before going into standby mode, and then opening it again when I resume and it works fine. That's obviously a temporary solution to my problem, but I'm still curious what's causing the problem.
