Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,
Ok we can take a look at this,

 

First what is your email service at work? Let me know before you do the next step

one thought might be to create a remote hookup.

To install Remote Desktop Connection (32-bit computers)

On the computer running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000, insert the Windows XP Professional compact disc into your CD-ROM drive.

 

 

When the Welcome page appears, click Perform additional tasks, and then click Set up Remote Desktop Connection.

 

Follow the directions that appear on your screen.

 

To create a new connection

 

Open Remote Desktop Connection.

 

In Computer, type a computer name or IP address. The computer can be a terminal server or it can be a computer running Windows Professional or Server that has Remote Desktop enabled and for which you have Remote Desktop permissions.

 

Click Connect.

 

The Log On To Windows dialog box appears.

 

In the Log On To Windows dialog box, type your user name, password, and domain (if required), and then click OK.

 

 

Notes

 

To open Remote Desktop Connection, click Start, point to Programs or All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click Remote Desktop Connection.

 

To change your connection settings, (such as screen size, automatic logon information, and performance options), click Options before you connect. For more information,

Reply to Michael L....... JA Computer Expert's Post: I don't have the start up disc for my windows xp. Dell installed it prior to my purchase (5 yrs ago) and never included one when they shipped my computer to me.

Well let see what we can do first what e-mail service do you have at work?

Reply to Michael L....... JA Computer Expert's Post: i am not sure.
Expert:  Michael L Top Notch Computer Expert replied 8 years ago.

Ok before we can continue, you will need to find out the following

What e-mail service you are using?

Do you have a Network at work?

Are you a administrator to the computer you work on at work, meaning can you set things up?

Also, you mi9ght contact Dell, and tell them that you bought a computer from them with pre-installed software, and you didn't get a XP disk and you need one, they should send you one.

Let me know when you have all the information.

Thanks

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
