Error on e-mail program (outlook express)

I set up a network yesterday between my father in laws new pc and mine and now it seems that I can no longer get into outlook express. I am running XP pro, and this is the message that I am gett8ing when I start up outlook...

Is there some other setting that I have to use now that I am using a router? I am usling a linksys wireless G model WRT54G, and have the computers hooked up by network cables.

Any one have a idea what I need to do to get this thing to work?
