Unable to contact server (Outlook)

I have a very annoying problem with Microsoft Outlook on all of the machines on a workgroup network. After starting/restarting the machines Outlook runs perfectly for a few hours, but then I am only able to send mail, and Outlook is unable to find the pop3 server for my incoming emails.

Restarting the machines seems to solve the problem for a few hours, but then it happens again!

I am always able to browse web pages, so I've ruled out DNS issues. Other sites I have seem to be unaffected by this issue, so I assume it must be a networking issue, but the fact that it works for 2 hours before it goes wrong is baffling me!

Anybody have any ideas?
