In configuration there might be connection issues. If such issue exists you could solve it easily. Simply launch a Web browser to see if the computer is working online. Then connect to several sites, as your homepage might still be displayed onscreen because it is stored in your browser's cache. If there is no connection, then you need to power down the modem (cable or DSL) and router (if you have one) and wait 45 seconds and power on the modem. Then power on again. This would remove connection issues.
There might be ISP issues while configuring. Then you need to call the email provider to see if there is any issue. If there are try to solve that also.
