Outlook Express for webmail

I am trying to use Outlook Express to manage a web-based email mail account.
I am using Win 98SE linked to a LAN network on an NT server. I realise that I have to use a default gateway and I know that is either 10.0.0.2 or 10.0.0.3.
I know my IP address is 10.0.0.242 but I just get the following message up when I try and connect in Outlook express.
We have two laptop machines running XP that have been set up no problems but I cannot see what is set up differently that is stopping my access.

"The host mail.fastnet.co.uk could not be found. Please verify that you
>have entered the server name correctly. Account: Fastnet, Server:
>mail.fastnet.co.uk, Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket
>Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D\"

Have you any ideas as I am now completely stuck and I cannot find any forums or information on the internet that helps.
Many Thanks
Stuart
