Thanks Dennis, the problem was my IP, mail was out for 3hours but 
everything else worked. then my in-box filled up showing the time 
correctly so nothing was lost.
I was bit nervous with the temp @ 100 outside and 95 inside w/o AC. This 
old P-IV rig ran last summer when it got to 100 inside but it is now 
another year older.
