I have an Intel Pentium 166MHz w/MMX computer that uses Windows 98SE. Outlook Express 6.0 is my email client and I have been using it without any problems. But yesterday when I went to open OE to check my email messages I noticed a yellow triangle marked "ERROR!" at the lower right of the window. Nothing happens! What should I do to correct this problem? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The error message means just that - an error has occured.
This is usually because the computer hasn't been able to download email from a server.

Congratulations for never having OE unexpectedly crash, losing all your saved email. If there is anything you want to keep, make sure you save it to your files outside of OE. The triangle error was an error in the connection with your mail provider, like Neil Jones said. It has probably already corrected itself by now.
Happy holidays!
