Windows 7: Windows Live Mail refuses go online.

Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows Live Mail refuses go online.

Hello, I have just bought a new Novetech PC with Windows 7 Home Premium. Although I am able to access the Internet via my browser, when I switch to Live Mail it tells me I am working offline and asks me if I want to go online, I say 'Yes', but it just keeps asking me again and again. I click the icon at the top of the page to 'Go Online' and nothing happens.

Any ideas?
